Private Pilot

Acquiring your Private Pilot Rating, known universally as a PPL or Private Pilot's License, is the basis for which most pilots begin their training towards more advanced ratings. It gives you the ability to fly most general aviation airplanes for fun, for charity, and in some cases for business. When you get your PPL you begin to log Pilot-In-Command (PIC ) time that is required to move on to further ratings.

Instrument Rating

As a necessary step in becoming a professional pilot, the instrument rating is as challenging as it is rewarding. To know that you can get in and out of airports that many other pilots can't is great peace of mind when flying to new and unfamiliar destinations.

Commercial Pilot

During commercial training you'll learn the in's and out's of your aircraft's systems, take a more in-depth look at flight planning and learn all about the rules that commercial pilots must adhere to in the Federal Aviation Regulations. Best of all, you'll be eligible to be paid as a pilot!

Instructor Ratings

Becoming a flight instructor means that you'll have a hand in training the next generation of aviators. Having an instructor certificate is highly desirable in a hiring environment and usually means that you'll be a more competitive candidate for a given flying job. P2J offers flight training for the CFI, CFII, and MEI certificates.

The ATP is the highest level of certification that the FAA awards a pilot. Piston2Jet is ready to provide the preparatory training for your ATP check ride by providing expert instruction by senior instructors who've "been there and done that".

Multi Engine Training
Coming Soon

When you think of an aircraft operated by a major aviation company you'll often think of aircraft that have more than one engine! Getting your multi engine rating enables you to step forward towards faster, more complex multi engine aircraft. It is an essential step in becoming a professional pilot. Multiple engines provide many benefits including enhanced redundancy, greater speed, higher payload, and a larger fuel capacity.
