This program utilizes the Jeppesen Professional Pilot Curriculum. This is the second half of the book most people initially acquired for the instrument course. The course will expand upon the basic principles and understanding you gained as a private pilot. You will learn more detailed performance and systems information and carefully study the aircraft you will be flying.
This training can be flown exclusively in the Mooney or in a combination of Skyhawk, Mooney, and twin engine Beechcraft Travel Air. The recent FAA regulation changes mean you no longer need to take the checkride in a complex aircraft, but you still need 10 hours of training in a complex aircraft (or TAA).
Many pilots need to build up some cross-country and night solo time to qualify for the commercial. The two-hour day/two-hour night dual can be lots of fun, as seen in this trip to Cleveland video and this trip to JFK blog post. We know you are ready when all the experience requirements are met and you can dead stick the aircraft onto a pre-determined spot on the runway within 200 feet.
