If you wish to progress from flying for pleasure to a career as a professional pilot, then the Commercial Helicopter pilot licence will enable you to fly for ‘hire or reward’.
The holder of a commercial pilot licence can act as a pilot of an aircraft and can be legally compensated for piloting services rendered.
Obtaining your helicopter commercial pilot licence will open up a new chapter with continual challenges and stimulation on a daily basis.
After achieving your PPL, you will move onto the commercial syllabus where we integrate advanced training and speciality courses to maximise your learning during your CPL process. Together with advanced navigation exercises, the intricacies of mountainous terrain flying and achievements of speciality courses and ratings, you will be well on your way to obtaining your commercial pilot licence and the start of a new career.
An average Commercial Pilot Licence – Helicopter will take up to one-year full time (including the PPL-H), but dependant on your commitment and budget can be achieved in a lot less than that.
