Flight Training: Commercial Rating
As a commercial pilot, you may be compensated for flying. During your commercial training, you will focus on a better understanding of the aircraft and its mechanical systems, advanced flight maneuvers, and a higher standard of airmanship. As a commercial pilot, you will also learn the skills to operate a complex aircraft that has retractable landing gear and a variable pitch propeller. The commercial rating itself does not allow a pilot to fly in instrument meteorological conditions (IFR), for this you will still need your Instrument Rating.
