- The EMB-145, Saab 340 and EMB-120 are multi crew certified aircraft. Flight time completed as a First Officer in these aircraft is credited towards any ICAO ATP flight time requirements. This is not the case for pilots building up flight time as a First Officer on single pilot certified aircraft such as King Air 90/100/200, Beech 99, PC-12, Caravan, Beech 1900, Metroliner II & III, etc.

The executive turbojet and heavy turboprop used during the employment program are multi-crew certified aircraft. Flight time completed as a First Officer/SIC in these aircraft are credited towards the FAA ATP flight time requirements. Due to FAA regulation changes regarding ATP flight time requirements (FAR 61.159), this is not the case for pilots building up flight time as a First Officer/SIC on single pilot certified aircraft (King Air 90/100/200, Beech 99, PC-12, Caravan, Beech 1900, Metroliner II & III, etc.).
Eagle Jet International has in place a nationwide low cost general aviation Pilot in Command (PIC) time building program so you can move forward with your pilot career.
The Eagle Jet International program offers the following advantages:
- PIC time building program at 50% of the normal cost of renting an aircraft on your own
- Only pay as you go.
- You fly where you live: no need to relocate to attend the program
- Flights take place around your schedule; you can fly as much or as little as you wish: full time attendance is not needed and you can keep your current occupation
- The only requirement is to hold the FAA Private Pilot License with a 3rd Class Medical
Email the following information to email@example.com:
- Area You Wish To Fly From
- FAA License and Ratings Held
- Total Flight Time
- Multi Engine Time (none is required)
- Preferred Start Date
- Approximately how many hours of flight per week do you intend to fly and for about which minimum duration
Eagle Jet will place you in contact with pilots with the same interest living in your area. You will complete a check out in the aircraft you will build flight time with at a local flight school with which shared time is approved. After the check out, you and your time building partner will fly together with one pilot acting as safety pilot and one pilot acting as flying pilot under the hood so both of you can log the time as PIC per FAA regulations also giving you the opportunity to only pay for half of the flight time.
TWO CATEGORIES OF AIRCRAFT:
- Category A: Cessna 172 Analog, Piper Warrior, etc with an hourly rate of about $130 to $150 per hour depending on the flight school renting the aircraft therefore an hourly rate of only $65 to $75 per hour of PIC time for pilots enrolled in the program
- Category B: Cessna 150/152, Piper Cherokee, etc with an hourly rate of about $100 to $125 per hour depending on the flight school renting the aircraft therefore an hourly rate of only $50 to $60 per hour of PIC time for pilots enrolled in the program
- Once one or more pilot(s) living in your area who are interested in building PIC time with you on the same category of aircraft while sharing the hourly cost are confirmed and you are interested in their pilot profile (license and ratings, total flight time, preferred start date, expected number of hours of flight time per week and expected duration for the time building): only a one time fee of $350
- Cost of the aircraft check out with a flight instructor of the flight school renting the aircraft is to be paid to the flight school directly
- Cost of 50% of the flight time is then to be paid to the flight school directly
- You pay the flight school directly as you go; no advanced payment of a block of hours is required
Eagle Jet International has in place an adapted PIC commercial executive aircraft flight training and experience so you can move forward with your pilot career. Thanks to our vast nationwide network of FAA Part 135 air carrier partners we have been working with for the past 24 years, our unique program offers the following advantages:
- Pilot in Command (PIC) ground and flight training and check on one of the most popular Part 135 commercial aircraft in the country
- You fly with one of our Part 135 air carriers based where you live: no need to relocate to attend the program
- Training and flights take place around your schedule: full time attendance is not needed and you can keep your current occupation
- Part 91 PIC training and flights take place in the actual commercial executive aircraft (no simulator) and is provided by the training captains of one of our Part 135 air carrier partners with which you will gain experience on type upon completion of the PIC training and check
- The PIC training and check only takes a few days to complete around your schedule
- Once PIC qualified on the commercial aircraft, you will be advised by the Flight Operations personnel of our air carrier partner when Part 91 legs are available during their operations. Depending on your availability, you can then confirm and make a payment to the air carrier for each leg flown. A Part 91 leg is a flight during which there is no passenger on board and it is therefore not a Part 135 commercial flight. Examples of Part 91 legs are positioning or de-positioning flights to pick up or after leaving passengers at destination and to return to your base.
- During Part 91 legs, you will be acting as the Flying Pilot under the Captain's supervision so you can log the time PIC
This is an excellent opportunity for you to be trained by the Captain instructors of a Part 135 air carrier (not by a private flight school or training facility) and build PIC commercial aircraft experience on a popular aircraft when desired at your own pace around your schedule and while staying home.
This training and experience will make you very marketable with various Part 135 air carriers. Also, even though this cannot be guaranteed ahead of time, it is possible the local Part 135 air carrier you are trained by and build experience with might offer you a position in the future depending on your performance and their needs since you and the air carrier personnel will know each other well.
Training and check cost depends on the aircraft and the air carrier. You can usually plan on about $5,000 to $9,000. PIC experience cost after being PIC qualified also depends on the aircraft and the air carrier. Plan on about $50 to $150 per leg. A typical leg duration is 45 minutes to 2 hours.
To join, please email your aviation resume (a sample aviation resume can be emailed to you upon request) to firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate from which date you would like to start training and the metropolitan area you live in. We will then let you know which options can be proposed to you in your area.

** Commercial Pilot License, Second Class Medical and Instrument & Multi-Engine Ratings do not need to be current to enroll but will need to be current when reporting to the Part 135 air carrier to start training.
