COMMERCIAL PILOT LICENSE

This is to let you know what is involved in gaining a CPL

What is a Commercial Pilot License?

A Commercial Pilot License (C.P.L.) is obtained once a pilot has successfully flown and logged at least
200 hours. These hours include those ones were flown in P.P.L. so in retrospect, only an additional
160 hours are gained from the previous 40 hours gained in P.P.L.


A C.P.L. is very important for those who are seeking to look at aviation as a career option because by
Kenyan Aviation Law, it is mandatory for every employed pilot to have a Kenyan Issued Commercial
Pilot License.

What is needed to obtain a C.P.L.?

Ground school classes are mandatory in gaining the theory that is needed in obtaining a C.P.L. There
will be a set of subjects that are mandatory in the study of this license. We will provide access to

mock papers that will help gauge ones understanding of the course content. All these will be includ-
ed in our Commercial Ground School package.

 

Once the hours for the C.P.L. have been flown and the

ground school exams have been passed. The student is then ready for the flight exam. This is usually
a cross country exam that includes Night flying, basic procedures and all that they have learnt since
P.P.L.
