A Commercial Pilot Certificate is similar to your Private Pilot Certificate except it allows you to fly an airplane and carry passengers and/or property for compensation or hire under certain conditions. The FAA requires the applicant to hold a private pilot’s license and most students obtain an instrument rating so that their commercial privileges are not limited. The FAA also requires 250 hours of accumulated flight time, including specific hours of experience in several areas such as night flying, cross country, etc. The flight hours earned to obtain the private and instrument rating are credited towards the required 250 hours. This is also a required rating for all flight instructors.
