Private Pilot is the base upon which all further ratings expand. A Private Pilot license allows you to fly recreationally, as Pilot in Command of an aircraft. This rating requires 35 hours of air instruction under Part 141.
Instrument Rating is the intermediate step between your Private Pilot and Commercial license. The Instrument Rating allows you to operate an aircraft in low-visibility, using the instruments in the aircraft. This is an important rating for any pilot, and a prerequisite for Commercial flying. An Instrument Rating requires an additional 35 hours under Part 141.
Commercial Pilot is the final course at NCFS. The Commercial Pilot license allows you to operate an aircraft for compensation or hire. This rating would allow you to be paid to fly! From this point, graduates could pursue a CFI (Certified Flight Instructor) and ATP (Airline Transport Pilot), to either Instruct or fly for the airlines! A Commercial Rating requires a total of 190 hours under Part 141.
