Commercial Pilot License (CPL)

Take to the skies as a commercial pilot and carry passengers or cargo.

The Commercial Pilot License (CPL) – as the name suggests – allows you to enter the commercial world of aviation. This means that you can carry passengers or cargo while getting paid!

After completing the Commercial Pilot License, former Wings Over Africa students are everywhere in sought after positions in the aviation industry – nationally and internationally. Brilliant career or passionate leisure activity, aviation offers you a future like no other and as a student of Wings Over Africa Flight School, you’ll find yourself in a class above the rest.

Wings Over Africa offers some of the most advanced pilot training technology and industry-leading Commercial Pilot instructors that help you through difficult airstreams on your way to becoming a professional pilot. But before we get you there, find out a bit more about the theoretical and practical requirements associated with a CPL.

CPL Requirements

Pilots need to complete a practical skills test in advanced flying with a civil aviation Authority approved flight examiner.

Theoretical Requirements

Ground School

Passing the Commercial Pilot License theoretical subjects is the most challenging aspect of getting your CPL.

Our aim is not only for you to pass the subjects, but to acquire true professionalism in the process. Our instructors are readily available to assist with any questions. See our website for dates and further information on our Ground School Courses. Our instructors are always readily available to go with any theoretical questions you may have in your Theoretical Training.

Required Flight Hours

We offer economical training rental opportunities after hours during weekdays and over weekends. Students can stay connected with Wings Over Africa management and their Flight Instructors for recommendations to achieve optimum experience and learning benefits.

Once you have completed the required number of hours and passed all the theoretical exams, you will be ready to do your flight test. Reserve at least ten hours shortly before the test for vigorous preparation and sharpening of skills in accordance with a structured program.
The Initial instrument rating test can also be on a multi-engine aircraft. A test with a designated examiner is required to complete the multi-engine rating. Bear in mind the initial Multi engine rating requires 70 hours pilot-in-command before being evaluated.
