Our Licenses and Ratings

Private Pilot License

A private pilot license grants you access to fly most single engine planes day or night, pending fair weather conditions.

Instrument Rating

Flying in instrument meteorological conditions (low visibility and clouds) requires additional training. This is the next step for many in their flight training. Further developing ones flying skills with instrument training makes every pilot a more proficient and safer pilot.

Commercial Pilot Rating

If you are learning to fly because you want to work as a pilot, this is a significant step for your professional preparation. McAir can help you meet minimum standards for commercial work including flight instruction, banner towing, commercial airline pilot and more. Commercial pilots are able to fly passengers for hire, transport cargo, or pursue a career as a flight instructor, charter pilot, airline pilot and much much more. The sky is the limit!

Multi-Engine Rating (MEL)

The multi-engine land rating is an add-on to an existing single-engine land private, commercial, or ATP certificate. For this rating, both VFR and IFR operations will be emphasized. There are no minimum time requirements for the multi-engine land rating; however, you will need an instructor endorsement for flight and ground training prior to taking the checkride. There is no written exam, only an oral exam and practical checkride are required.

Certified Flight Instructor Rating (CFI)

McAir offers training for all instructor certificates and opportunities to instruct as one of our staff once training is complete. Contact us to start flying with us while getting paid – We are always looking for great instructors to add to our team.

Certified Flight Instructor Instrument Rating (CFII)

CFII or Certified Flight Instructor Instrument allows you to teach instrument rating applicants; both on ground (aeronautical knowledge) and flight training. As part of the training, you’ll have the benefit of getting mountain flying experience, and learn real-world instrument flying while flying cross country in the western US.

Airline Transport Pilot (ATP)

In 2015, the FAA added the Airline Transport Pilot Certification Training Program (ATP-CTP) as a prerequisite to taking the ATP Knowledge Test. The ATP CTP is designed to bridge the knowledge gap between a pilot who holds a commercial pilot certificate and a pilot operating in an air carrier environment. In preparation for the FAA’s highest certificate, training will cover aerodynamics, automation, adverse weather conditions, air carrier operations, transport airplane performance, professionalism, and leadership and development. Successful completion of the ATP CTP will ensure you receive the baseline knowledge and experience to prepare them for the duties, responsibilities, and challenges of an air carrier environment.

McAir has established a professional, well-structured environment fostered a career-oriented pathway from very the first day of training. I completed multiple ratings at McAir – CFII, Multi-Engine and Commercial Pilot. It is absolutely incredible flying on the front doorstep of the Rockies!

I had a great experience at McAir. After graduation, I had to move to Texas where it was cheaper to live to continue my fight training. McAir influenced me to keep going and pushing my dream to be a Commercial Pilot and made me even more excited about a career in aviation. The flight instructors were the best and super knowledgeable, and the equipment was great to train on too.

Having previously flown at another flight school at Jeffco and an FBO at Boulder (1V5), I came to McAir with a private license and instrument rating. I have since earned my commercial single-engine license and CFI certificate. The instructors at McAir are employees of McAir and take pride in their jobs. The maintenance, billing, and record-keeping at McAir are excellent. Once or twice I have had billing issues and they are always resolved immediately, in-person at the counter without a wait or fuss. Very professional and safe!
