Career Pilot Program
Whether you want to fly for the airlines, charter, EMS, or cargo, Blue Line’s accelerated courses are designed to take you from zero hours to starting your new career in as little as 5 1/2 months.
NOTE: Our CFI program is exclusively available at our Florida location. North Carolina students will temporarily travel to Florida to complete the CFI certification before returning to our North Carolina facility for their remaining training. We understand the commitment and, to support our students, we offer a $350 travel reimbursement. Additionally, regardless of your student housing enrollment, accommodations are provided during the Florida-based CFI training.
Flight instructor opportunities are available after completing the Career Pilot Program. We also hold resume and interview workshops to help prepare our pilots for the next part of their journey.
Beyond the Minimums
We don’t just teach the test, we teach you to be a capable and resilient pilot. It’s important to know the information thoroughly with a deep understanding, not just hit your hours requirement and go out for a checkride.
Our instructors take pride in making sure each student has a firm understanding of how the airplane works and most importantly knows safety procedures.
Our accelerated students receive additional educational enrichment through access to our member ground sessions, which cover a variety of topics like avionics systems, engine systems, weather, and aerodynamics.
- AIRLINE PILOT
- CARGO PILOT
- CHARTER PILOT
- EMS PILOT
