A Commercial Pilot Licence is the dream of many aspiring pilots. Giving you the skills and authority to be able to work in the aviation industry as a Commercial Pilot.
A CPL is a big commitment involving lots of flying training, theoretical training and examinations. To qualify for the Commercial Licence, you will need to meet a number of requirements, be a minimum of 18 years old and able to hold a Class 1 medical.
You will undertake dual flight training with an instructor, briefings, solo navigational flying and plenty of study. There are 7 commercial theory exams to complete, these can be done at your own pace and you have a 24 month period to complete the theory in from when you sit the first exam.
Once you meet all the requirements and have completed a Pre-Licence flight with an instructor you will sit your Commercial Flight Test.
A Commercial Pilot Licence will allow you be employed as a pilot. Depending on who you work for, you will then move up the ranks and start flying larger, more sophisticated aircraft on more complicated operations and routes.
