Sunrise Aviation’s Commercial Pilot Certification Course requires the completion of a rigorous ground school and the logging of 120 hours of flight time. The flight time in the commercial course includes a review of navigation, instrument procedures, night flying and the introduction to flying in a complex single-engine airplane. Sunrise Aviation uses a Piper Arrow for its complex aircraft at the Jacksonville satellite. The Arrow has retractable landing gear and a constant speed propeller. The Piper Arrow is an excellent airplane for learning and demonstrating the flight maneuvers required for a commercial pilot. Seven other students are currently working on completing the FAA requirements to be a commercial pilot at Sunrise Aviation’s Jacksonville satellite.
Hoang is a student in the Professional Pilot Technology Associate of Science degree program at Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ). Currently nearly 40 students from FSCJ are enrolled in Sunrise Aviation pilot training courses at Jacksonville with that number expanding all the time. Sunrise Aviation is the exclusive provider of flight training for FSCJ and has been working with the college since September 2011.
Sunrise Aviation has recently added a 2011 Piper Warrior and two more Cessna Skyhawks (C172) to the fleet in Jacksonville. Sunrise Aviation now has 50 aircraft in its training fleet ranging from the timeless Cessna 152 to Piper Seminoles and Piper Senecas for multi-engine training. Sunrise Aviation has its main base of operations in Ormond Beach, Florida where they offer Professional Pilot training to both international and domestic students.
