MILCOMP Commercial Pilot

Military Compentency

As a current or former military pilot, you can earn an FAA Commercial Pilot certificate without an FAA check ride.  If you were a military instructor pilot, you can also earn FAA Certified Flight Instructor certificates. The privilege of getting an initial FAA CFI certificate without a oral exam and check-ride is an outstanding benefit!

 

After earning your MILCOMP FAA licenses, if you are interested in adding additional airplane classes, such as single-engine or multi-engine to your Commercial or CFI licenses, removing a centerline thrust restriction or preparing for your Airline Transport Pilot Practical Test (check ride), contact us.
