COMMERCIAL PILOT LICENSE



The Commercial Pilot License gives the holder the ability to accept compensation [pay] for flying aircraft.  The night rating is normally part of the commercial pilot’s course, but other ratings such as multi-engine and instrument rating may be added to the commercial pilot’s license.  The flight instructor’s rating requires a commercial pilot’s license.
