Licenses & Certificates

Licenses & Certificates

Recreational Pilot License

The Recreational Pilot’s License allows you to fly during the day within 50 nautical miles of your airport. It also allows you to carry one passenger and go further from home with certain restrictions. Although less training is required and you can get up to the sky faster, many pilots choose to skip this certification and work directly toward their Private Pilot’s License. But, for enjoying the freedom of flight in your local area, this is a very cost effective option.

*Some AME’s still prefer paper forms.

Private Pilot License

The Private Pilot’s license allows you to fly planes of varying sizes wherever you like, day or night, as well as allowing you to take family and friends with you. This particular license will enable you to rent single-engine airplanes wherever they are available, join a flying club, or even purchase and fly your own personal plane. With all of it’s advantages, the Private Pilot’s License will open up a world of new flying opportunities for both business and pleasure.

*Some AME’s still prefer paper forms.

Instrument Rating

Having an Instrument Rating gives you more versatility and freedom as a pilot since it will equip you with the ability to fly in a wider range of weather conditions. It also provides you with the opportunity to fly in and above the clouds, which is both thrilling and challenging! Your skill level will increase dramatically, your flights will be safer, and you will be able to fly with less unwanted hassle all across the county. This is the logical and rewarding next step for anyone who has their Private Pilot’s License.

*Some AME’s still prefer paper forms.

Commercial Pilot License

The Commercial Pilot’s License is perfect for anyone wishing to turn their passion for flying into a career. This license will allow you to be compensated for your piloting skills and provides you with training in order to develop a better understanding of aircraft systems, as well as a high standard of airmanship. Although you can obtain a Commercial Pilot’s License without an Instrument Rating, you are restricted to daytime flight within 50 nautical miles.

*Some AME’s still prefer paper forms.

CFI/CFII

The Certified Flight Instructor rating comes with the privilege of passing on your flying skills to aspiring pilots. It is often the first job you’ll get in the industry, making it an exciting step for the beginning career pilot. As you teach, you can log the hours as your own, allowing you to be paid to build time! Many flight instructors move on to other careers when they have the required hours, but some remain in the teaching field. If you can handle the challenge, teaching others what you know about soaring on the wind is the very best way to grow quickly into a competent and highly skilled professional flyer!
 
The Certified Flight Instructor/Instrument rating allows you to take students into the clouds! It requires high levels of flying skill, because the first time a student enters zero visibility conditions can be a challenging moment. It is also highly rewarding for the instructor, offering the opportunity to see your students take big steps forward in their competency and confidence while they’re in the cockpit! This is one of the most enjoyable ratings to teach, and as with all educating, the instructor will learn a great deal in the process!

*Some AME’s still prefer paper forms.

Biennial Flight Review

The Biennial Flight Review (BFR) is a required refresher checkout for all pilots every two years. It can be accomplished by spending at least 1 hour on the ground and 1 hour in the air with a qualified CFRI, who will then declare that you are safe and competent to take to the skies for another 24 months. This is usually a relaxes and enjoyable opportunity to show your stuff, as well as to be stretched a bit and possibly run through some advanced maneuvers that you may not have practiced for a while. Acquiring another rating also counts as a BFR and is a great way to improve your flying and become a crack pilot over time!

  • Completed every two years*
  • Complete 2 hours of instruction, including:
    • 1 hour of ground instruction
    • 1 hour of airplane time

*Acquiring a new rating also constitutes as a BFR.

Instrument Proficiency Check

An Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC) is required for instrument pilots who have not flown the required number of approaches or have done any VOR tracking in the preceding 12 months. It is an opportunity to knock the rust off your instrument skills and can be simulated or flown in real instrument conditions. Like a BFR, it is usually a relaxed and highly enjoyable exercise, and one in which the pilot gets to hone his instrument and radio skills in ‘live’ conditions if desired. Wings of Refuge Flight School is ideally located near a towered airport so that IPC’s can be simulated or done in contact with ATC. The choice is yours!

  • For instrument rated pilots
  • Required for those pilots who:
    • Have not flown required number of approaches OR
    • Done any VOR tracking in the preceding 12 months
