There are several ways to obtain the required flight experience (total flight hours) to get hired. The best and least expensive way to obtain flight experience is through Instructing as a Certified Flight Instructor. Students who enjoy teaching may want to consider additional training to become a Certified Flight Instructor. Many pilots choose this route on their way to future aviation jobs. Pinnacle Aviation Academy is currently hiring qualified Certified Flight Instructors who enjoy teaching and sharing their love of aviation with other pilots. Other students choose to acquire additional flight time in multi-engine aircraft to meet the hiring requirements of corporate flight departments and other aviation employers by “building time” in our 2002 Seminole. Pinnacle Aviation Academy can help you cross flight experience off the list.
