Licence Training CPL

The Commercial Pilot Licence

The CPL entitles the pilot to fly for hire and reward.
This licence is also the stepping-stone towards working in a multi-crew environment such as an airline. 
There are two stages to obtaining this licence, Ground School and Flight Training.

Groundschool can be undertaken via two routes:

We can offer both.
For details… Groundschool Training

It is important to understand

the CPL is the basic licence, which can be expanded with the addition of ratings such as:

For Students wishing to become an airline pilot we recommend they complete the ATPL Groundschool, as this also includes the CPL and IR theory exams.

For students only requiring a CPL, with no intention of becoming an airline pilot (e.g. for Crop Spraying, Parachute-dropping, Instruction etc.), the CPL Groundschool is more appropriate, but it does limit you to single-pilot operations.

Here at Fly-In-Spain we offer Groundschool and Flight training
in a combined modular course.
This leads to more consistent, integrated and efficient training.

CPL Flight Training

The Commercial Pilot licence can be done on a SEP (Single Engine Piston) or on a MEP Multi Engine Piston Aircraft.

The total training flight time is 25 hrs.

If you already hold an Instrument Rating, the requirement is reduced to 15 hrs.

This involves 10 hours on a SEP-Aircraft
and 5 hours on a Complex Aircraft (Variable Pitch Prop and rectable undercarriage).
Finish with a CPL skill test.

Alternatively the 5 hours complex can also be done on a Multi-Engine Aircraft. Then the Skill test has to be done on the ME-Aircraft. To do the 5 hours on ME-Aircraft, you have to do the ME-VFR rating before (or this will be additional 6 hours of flight training on ME and 8 hours of theory)
