Commercial Pilot Training

The Commercial Pilot Licence allows a pilot to be remunerated for flying work and forms the basis for advanced flight training for those wishing to pursue a career as a commercial pilot. Becoming a commercial pilot is one of the most exciting and challenging careers you can choose and involves much more than traditional aviation skills, important though these are.

The aim of the CPL (A) course is to train PPL (A) holders to the level of proficiency necessary for the issue of a CPL (A) which will enable the holder to then complete their Instrument Rating and Multi-Engine Ratings.

As a continuation of your pilot training, our CPL course provides a cost effective way towards a career as a commercial pilot and may be tailored to fit around your lifestyle.
