CPL Flight Course

Course Overview

The EASA Commercial Pilot Certificate qualifies pilots to be financially compensated for piloting an aircraft. It is referred to internationally as a Commercial Pilot License (CPL). It is unlike the Private Pilot certificate, which is designed for recreational use. Furthermore, the PPL only permits the licensed pilot to share the flight cost. 

By earning your CPL, you’ll gain advanced knowledge and skills in aviation, including navigation, weather patterns, and advanced aircraft systems. You’ll learn to handle more complex aircraft and situations, expanding your flying capabilities and making you a more versatile and valuable pilot in the aviation industry.

But beyond the technical skills, obtaining your CPL opens up countless opportunities for you to explore your passion for flying. You could pursue a career as a commercial pilot, fly for an airline, become a flight instructor, or even start your aviation business. With a CPL, the sky is the limit, and you’ll have the chance to fly in a variety of settings, from transporting people to delivering cargo.

The CPL qualification permits the holder to act as the pilot of an aircraft for remuneration and act as co-pilot (First Officer) in commercial air transportation, as pilot-in-command, co-pilot of any airplane engaged in operations other than commercial air transportation, or as pilot-in-command in commercial air transportation of any single-pilot airplane. Commercial Pilot License training is usually one of the last steps in becoming a professional pilot.
