Whether your aviation goal is to fly for a major airline, regional corporation or for pleasure, your initial training and the school you attend will play a vital role in the fulfillment of your ambitions. Selecting the right school is an important decision for you to make. With over 800 flight schools in the United States it is very important that you take the time in making your selection. A professional flight education is very important. Be wary of “bargain” and so called “guaranteed training” programs. It is important that all your questions be answered and that you are completely satisfied with the answers. Florida is known for its training environment, offering over 300 days a year of good flying weather. Phoenix East uses a
fleet of carefully maintained and fully certified aircraft for all ratings. The simulators are state-of-the-art full size closed cockpit. Our instructor hiring policies are very strict, resulting in a staff of highly trained instructors whose experience level range as high as 20,000 hours. If you are an international student, we offer and are approved for student visas (M-1) and the visitors exchange program visa (J-1). The J-1 visa allows you to gain practical experience in the U.S for compensation and is valid for 24 months. We also assist our students in finding employment after graduation. Many of our graduates work at Phoenix East and priority is given to them when positions become available.

Professional Flight instruction is our specialty. These courses are designed specifically for the professional career-minded pilot. We offer the most complete and comprehensive training available. Most of our professional programs take you from a single engine Cessna 172 to a multi-engine aircraft and continuing with a Glass Cockpit FTD before your training is completed. A proven curriculum with excellent instruc-
F A R
tion provides the foundation you will use throughout your career in aviation. In fact, Phoenix East is like most major airlines and corporate flight departments in our training techniques. The result is a more proficient, thoroughlytrained pilot at less cost. The training is complete, professional and safe.
At Phoenix East we recognize that many pilots do not fit into a set flight training course or program. Whether you are a Private Pilot with 60 hours or a Commercial/ Instrument Pilot with 3,000 hours, your time and experience can be very valuable and worth hundreds of dollars towards your next rating or certificate. Most flight schools are not willing to spend that extra time with you to evaluate your logbook and create a program that is cost-effective. Our experienced and qualified staff of professionals are on hand to personally evaluate your experience and qualifications
to design a program especially for you. These programs are extremely helpful when converting military and helicopter experience to a fixed wing rating. We also work with many countries to convert their licenses to F.A.A. requirements. Through a custom program you gain maximum proficiency with minimum training which means money saved. The same commitment and professional approach to learning is required in the training under Part 61 as the Professional Course under F.A.R. Part 141.
The ATP signifies to the industry that you have reached the pinnacle of your profession and you will be recognized throughout the world. Prerequisites: Commercial, Multi-engine, Flight Instructor and Instrument Flight Instructor or completion of our professional program. The size of the class will be limited and will last approximately 18 months. The course is designed to take students to the necessary requirements under the current Federal Aviation Regulations (F.A.R.) in order to pass the written and flight test to be an Airline Transport Pilot. The Course is an intense program based upon specialized Medical Standards, Passenger handling, Regulations, Operation Specifications, Crew Coordination, Meteorology, A.T.C., Navigation Coordination, Emergency Procedures, Enroute Navigation and I.F.R. Skills. Modern twin and turbine simu-
lators will be used throughout the course. Phase checks and tests will be given every 150 hours. Throughout the course the student will be given the opportunity to flight instruct, fly second in command and fly as a Commercial Pilot. While flight instructing and/or working as a pilot in command you will receive financial compensation. Included in the course is the F.A.R. 135 (Commuter) proficiency training. Cockpit Resource Management Training will be conducted in a PEA Glass Cockpit FTD. A large portion of the program centers around a â€œtraining airlineâ€? syllabus that adds the realism of a working airline to acquire your flight hours and experience. Upon completion of your training you will be the most knowledgeable and best prepared applicant for your interview. Now that you possess an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate we will assist you in preparation for an Airline Pilot interview.
Advanced electronic avionics systems are rapidly replacing conventional instrumentation in new commercial aircraft. Develop these skills and give yourself a definite advantage over other airline candidates. The Glass Cockpit Course teaches these skills and gives you an important head start in your airline training and hiring. Today’s high tech and demanding cockpit environments also emphasize multi-engine crew coordination. The FAA now mandates that aircrews receive Crew Resource Management (CRM) training for greater safety. Phoenix
