     (Lodging Available on Request)


This Certification is required to fly for a commercial Airline. This rating requires a graduation certificate from an authorized certification training program which includes simulator & classroom training. After completing this course, EAS can administer your written examination and provide the multi engine training to prepare you for the FAA oral/practical examination. This check-ride requires that you be 23 years of age.




The FAA regulations require any pilot who operates an aircraft with a tail wheel to have obtained the proper ground and flight training in a tailwheel aircraft and receive a logbook endorsement from that instructor. EAS can provide this training upon request. Please give us a call.


The FAA regulations require any pilot who operates an aircraft with retractable landing gear and a constant speed propeller to have the proper ground and flight training accompanied by a log book endorsement to do so.

This typically requires 3-5 Hrs of dual instruction in an aircraft that meets a complex aircraft definition. This can be done in one day, depending on experience level, or spread out over a few days. As always, it's your choice.

The FAA regulations require any pilot who wishes to operate an aircraft with an engine rated at over 200 HP have the proper ground and flight training accompanied by a log book endorsement to do so. We would be glad to help you meet those needs anytime you are ready. Typically takes just a few hours to complete in a single afternoon.
