Once you obtain your Private Pilot Licence, you can learn the skills and knowledge required to obtain your Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) – and help you take another step towards a lucrative career in commercial flying.
The theoretical training for the CPL covers many of the same subject areas as the PPL but in greater depth. This is to provide the student with ‘situational awareness’ that enables them to anticipate problems and know how best to handle any scenario in flight.
Learning to fly, at a professional level, requires careful planning and coordination. The emphasis today is very much on seamless training. In other words, airlines want prospective employees to have been through a training programme that shows continuity and a depth and breadth of experience that is required for an airline position.
The hours requirement for a CPL is a minimum 200 hours. This normally means 100 hours of solo flying and 100 hours under dual instruction. This 200 hour minimum requirement INCLUDES the hours gained as part of the PPL.
