About the course

The aim of the Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) course is to raise the proficiency of your flying to a commercial standard. Initial training will raise your general handling skills to a commercial standard. The course then moves on to cover cross-country navigation, emergency and abnormal procedures. The first 10 hours of the course are flown in a single engine aircraft with the final 5 hours flown on in a complex single or multi engine aircraft. For students without a Basic Instrument Flight Module (BIFM) completion certificate, the course will include 10 hours of IFR training. The course culminates in a formal pre-test assessment just before a test with a flight examiner. Our CPL course is run Monday to Thursday over three consecutive weeks.
