Phase V – Commercial Pilot Licence.

The Commercial Pilot Training is designed to consolidate what you’ve learnt during the PPL cross country phase but to a higher level of accuracy, professionalism and broader range of skills.

Once you are qualified as a Commercial Pilot, your first job could be anything from Aerial Photography, Freight, Scenic Flights, Charter Flights and even flying instruction upon completion of a Flight Instructors course. The CPL syllabus is designed to prepare you for this.
