For a Commercial Pilot Licence you need to complete 7 theory exams, each one covering a subject in general aviation. Students typically conduct home study and occasionally come in for a one-on-one theory lesson with a flight instructor.
The subjects are Aerodynamics, Meteorology, Air Law, Aircraft General Knowledge, Human Factors, Performance and Planning, and Navigation. Click the arrow to see a list of text books we recommend to conduct your studies; we are able to order these for you at our flight school. We also offer classroom courses - it's a 3 day intensive course per subject with a course fee of A$700 (inclusive of GST). Please contact us for course dates and availability.
