Commercial Pilot License



The Commercial Pilot Licence

The CPL consists of Theory training and Flight Training

The Theory training can be done via two options

  • Distance learning Program or
  • With our residential training program.

See the details...Theory Training

The Important thing to understand:

the CPL is only a License, you have to add Ratings like 

  • IR
  • ME-IR
  • HPA... and more

Normally all the Students/ Pilots complete the ATPL theory if they what to have the CPL, as the ATPL theory includes also the IR-Theory and it is only 1 more theory exam .

It is highly recommended to complete the ATPL theory, if you are training for the CPL, because then you can add the IR-Rating, which is mandatory for the most CPL pilots to be offered employment.
