commercial Pilot Licence

A CPL allows you to work in the aviation industry as a fully qualified commercial pilot. After your training you'll have the skill set to begin work in a range of areas in the industry, from adventure tours and aerial photography to utility work and surveying. A CPL is the pathway to becoming part of multi-crew operations including search and rescue or coast guard. Work overseas or become a flight instructor yourself, the sky is the limit. We provide briefings and private tuition at our base in addition to your own home study.
