Commercial Pilot Licence

Fly for a career as a Commercial Pilot. With choices like Instructor, Air Transport operations, Airlines etc, the world is waiting.

Commercial Pilot Flight Training

Inspire Aviation runs Commercial Pilot Licence Courses all year round.
Before you can attempt the CPL flight test, you must pass 7 theory examinations, covering Performance, Law, Aerodynamics, Human Factors, Meteorology, Navigation and General Aircraft Knowledge.

For your Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL A) flight test, you will be flying with an approved testing officer and will be tested on similar issues as the PPL except that the knowledge and skill
areas will be covered more comprehensively.
Passing the CPL test and being issued with the licence entitles you to carry passengers for hire or reward, in association with a licensed air service operator. This licence is needed to operate as a light aircraft charter pilot. You will now be able to fly as pilot in command of single pilot aircraft or as co-pilot in multi-crew aircraft.

Course Structure

To complete a Commercial Licence you will have to complete the 3 CPL training stages:

Stage 1: 7 Commercial Theory Subjects

Inspire Aviation does run full time dedicated theory courses twice a year. We also have instructors on hand to help guide you through the self study books.

Stage 2: Hour Building

Hour building can be completed during your theory studies. Following your PPL you will have around 10 Command hours. To complete the CPL course you must have a total of 100 Command hours.

Stage 3: Advanced Training

CPL training and other ratings and endorsements (Night Rating, CSU, Retractable Ect.). Again these ratings and endorsements can be completed during the Theory study and Hour building.

Course Times

Each course is tailored to the individual and is not run on set course dates. You may undergo this training on a full-time, part-time or casual basis.

Course Duration

The Commercial Pilot Licence course time frame is dependent on variables, such as weather conditions and student apptitude and commitment.

Aircraft used for training

Inspire Aviation generally conducts initial CPL training in our fleet of Cessna 172R aircraft. Following a CSU and Retractable endorsement, we then finish the CPL training in our Piper Arrow4 or Cessna 182 with a CSU/Retractable undercarriage. We do from time to time complete CPL training in the owners own private aircraft or aircraft sourced from other places.

Course Components

Flying is always the fun part! Some students find it hard to study the theory component, here at Inspire Aviation we can offer students tailored theory packages to help complete the required theory examinations.
