Private Pilot Programs
We offer programs to prepare students for their private pilot’s license.

You’ll meet other students from around the world and you’ll be able to meet up again as part of the flying club that includes students and graduates from the United States and elsewhere.
At Sunrise Aviation we offer complete private pilot programs that are designed for beginning pilots and others. If you don’t need all of the classes and programs we offer we can help design a course schedule to specifically meet your needs. If you already have some experience and training we’ll help you build on that knowledge to take you to the next level.
Commercial Pilot Training
Our professional pilot program is an intensive full-time program that leads to FAA private pilot certification, instrument rating and commercial pilot certification. The courses are for both beginning pilots as well as those who already have some training. It includes ground school, simulator training and flying time as well as briefings. All training is provided by highly experienced instructors with years of flying expertise.
Commercial multi-rating program caters to those who meet the prerequisites and wish to improve their professional skills. Additionally, we offer a glass cockpit transition course that includes ground school theory and Cessna 172 training as well as pre and post briefings. This program helps pilots transition to the requirements of Technologically Advanced Aircraft (TAA). Led by experienced instructors, students will gain the knowledge and understanding needed to further hone their flying skills.
