Single Engine CPL

About The Course 

The Commercial Pilot Licence will allow you to operate as Pilot-in-Command on Public Transport flights carrying passengers. The Skills Test is designed to simulate this aspect of the licence and also includes general handling skills which you will have learnt initially as part of your PPL(A) training. A much higher degree of piloting skill, accuracy and situational awareness is required and this is what the CPL course is designed to teach you.

The CPL course is designed to be a full-time course. At Booker Aviation, however, we offer a bespoke service and we are flexible with your requirements so that this course can be fitted around any other commitments. Whilst there is no official ground school requirement, you will be issued with study material which will assist you in passing the oral section of the CPL(A) Skills Test. The self-study requirement is best achieved at the airfield where you can get assistance from our instructors, and in general full-time students will progress and complete the course more efficiently than part-time students; however, we can tailor the course to suit your needs.
