The CIFA Peru Program

Master aviation English, achieve multiple pilot ratings and get your FAA certification in just 14 months

Start your training near home, then transfer to Florida in the United States to increase your English abilities and  master the skills of flying in busy commercial airspace near major airports.


Our program includes

• Aviation English Course

• USA FAA Private Pilot License (PPL)

• Instrument Rating (IR)


The estimated time to complete the program is 14 months with an accumulated 256 flight hours.

The first 100 flight hours will be flown in Peru with Peruvian and U.S. aircraft and instructors. The remaining 116 flight hours plus 40 hours of flight simulator time will be flown in the U.S. All Private Pilot License crosscountry flights are greater than 50 nautical miles; all Commercial Pilot License crosscounty flights are greater than 100 nautical miles.

• Commercial (CPL) Pilot License

• Multi-Engine (ME) rating Pilot License

Our Training Aircraft

You will train in industry standard aircraft designed and built for safe operation by student pilots.

The Private Pilot License, hour building and Instrument Rating phases of the program will be conducted in the Cessna 172 Skyhawk or Piper PA-28 Cherokee aircraft and in approved Simulator / Flight Training Devices.

The Multi-engine training takes place in Piper Seneca PA-34 or Cessna 310 aircraft (with surcharge, see below) and approved Simulator / Flight Training Devices.

These aircraft have been in production for many years and are used by flight training academies around the world. They have excellent safety records and receive frequent safety reviews and updates from their manufacturers.

Just as important as the type of aircraft is the ratio of aircraft to students:

At some large flight academies, you'll be competing with other students for scarce flight hours in the available aircraft.

At CIFA, our smaller class sizes mean you won't be competing for time in the air; you'll get your flight hours quicker and finish your program and certifications sooner, saving you time and money.

The Cessna 310 (above right) is an advanced multi-engine aircraft offered as an option to CIFA students. The Cessna 172 Skyhawk (above) is the most-used training aircraft in the world.
