COMMERCIAL PILOT LICENCE (CPL)
When working towards a Commercial Pilot License, you take your piloting skills to an even higher level. The increase in ability brings an increase in opportunity. Having a Commercial Pilot License not only rewards you financially but also opens the world of aviation to you
To be eligible for a commercial pilot license, you must be at least 18 years of age. This is a CAAP requirement. However, this doesn't mean you can't begin an aviation career later in life. It is never too late to get a Commercial Pilot License.
With a Commercial Pilot License the opportunities really begin to emerge. As a commercial pilot, you can now be rewarded for your piloting skills. In other words, you can get paid to fly.
There are some limitations for CPL, you cannot go beyond a 50-nm radius from your home airport and are unable to fly at night. Moreover, if you are not rated for multi-engine flight, you won't be able to experience the benefits of flight in a multi-engine airplane. This is a "true flight."
With an Instrument Rating, even if you encounter inclement weather patters, you can still attend those far away business meetings. You have permission to take-off and land at busy airports and have no flight distance limitations. An Instrument Rating ones your piloting skills while giving you countless opportunities to fly
PILOT TRAINING PROGRAM
CURRICULUM : COMMERCIAL PILOT CERTIFICATION
CLASS : AIRPLANE SINGLE ENGINE
OBJECTIVE OF TRAINING:
Having finished the PPL Training Program, our next objective is to further sharpen the skills of the trainee, making sure he/she meets the standards for obtaining a Commercial Pilot License. Making sure the trainee will learn more advanced subjects at ground schooling as well as advanced maneuvers for flight. The course can also include training for transition into multi-engine aircrafts.
• Be 18 years of age or older
• Hold a private pilot license
• Hold a current medical certificate (Class I)
If you want to fly higher, farther and faster, you'll need an airplane multi-engine rating in addition to a private pilot certificate or commercial pilot certificate. The multi-engine rating is also a necessary step for any professional pilot, and is known to be one of the more enjoyable (albeit expensive!) training programs during professional pilot training.
An applicant for a multi-engine rating is usually already a private pilot or a commercial pilot. Student pilots rarely choose to obtain a private pilot certificate in a multi-engine aircraft. So this course is designed to train and qualify a private or a commercial pilot license holder to fly a multi-engine, high performance, and complex airplane. This course qualifies any pilot to fly a multi-engine aircraft that is usually required for an airline flight crew position or simply upgrades one’s license for a higher rating of aircraft.
PRIVATE PILOT LICENSE (PPL)
You must be at least 16 years old to obtain a Student Pilot License, which will permit you to fly solo (without your instructor). You must be at least 17 years of age to receive a PPL.
National studies have shown that the average person needs approximately 50 hours of flight time and about 110 hours of ground instruction to pass the Practical and Written Examination of the CAAP and obtain a Private Pilot License. We will accommodate all of your needs to maximize training efficiency and ensure that you will complete your course in two months.
With your PPL, you will be able to rent an airplane at any time. This means that you will be able to take your family or friends to countless destinations for the day or a week.
There are some limitations though. You may not be compensated for flying. The weather conditions in which you may fly may also have some setback. It is recommended that you take our Instrument Rating Course (IR) for your safety and advancement. Also, the Commercial Pilot Course (CPL) is available for students who want to fly as commercial pilots.
PILOT TRAINING PROGRAM
CURRICULUM : PRIVATE PILOT CERTIFICATION
CLASS : AIRPLANE SINGLE ENGINE
Duration : 3 MONTHS
OBJECTIVE OF TRAINING:
The trainee will obtain the knowledge, skill and aeronautical experience necessary to meet the requirements for a private pilot certificate with an airplane category rating and a single-engine land class rating.
• Be 16 years of age or older
• Hold a recreational or student pilot certificate prior to enrolling in the flight portion of the private pilot certification course
• Hold a current medical certificate
Instrument Rating (IR)
Instrument rating refers to the qualifications that a pilot must have in order to fly under IFR (Instrument Flight Rules). It requires additional training and instruction beyond what is required for a Private Pilot Certificate or Commercial Pilot Certificate, including rules and procedures specific to instrument flying, additional instruction in meteorology (weather), and more intensive training in flight solely by reference to instruments. The test consists of a written exam and a practical test (known more commonly as the check ride). The check ride is divided into two. First, an oral component to verify that the applicant understands the theory of instrument flying and second is an actual flight to ensure that the pilot possesses the practical skills required for safe IFR flight. Airlines require pilots to possess this rating, as airline operations are based solely on IFR (instrument Flight Rules).
Flight Instructor Rating
For many young pilots, becoming a Flight Instructor is the ideal way to enter the field of aviation. At the bottom of the commercial aviation hierarchy, competition for employment is intense. If a new pilot wants to get ahead in his career, he must gain experience and knowledge beyond what he acquired during basic training. Employers want candidates who take their careers seriously and who proactively acquire the tools, knowledge, and experience essential to becoming a valuable employee.
Earning a Flight Instructor License is one way to successfully enter the world of commercial flight, gain invaluable experience and build the pilot-in-command hours needed to earn a respectable position in the world of flying.
A Flight Instructor's License allows one to start the journey of acquiring a deep understanding of the basic and essential principles of flight. It provides a chance to
acquire the skills unique to working with people from different backgrounds through different ways of thoughts and expectations. It will likewise foster an environment where "by the book," disciplined flying is the norm.
Essentially, a Flight Instructor will begin his or her aviation career working in a structured environment that includes being closely-monitored and mentored. Good flying practices and good decision-making will be the focus and goal of each and every flight. The ability to plan, the application of accurate evaluative practices, and record keeping will be an integral part of all flight activities. A Flight Instructor trainee will learn how to concentrate on achieving excellence in performance and clarity of understanding, which can be passed on to others in order to become safe and competent pilots.
During the ground class, students learn techniques of applied instruction, appraisal of student progress, the learning process, elements of effective teaching, student evaluation and testing, training theories, training performance development, lesson planning, classroom instructional techniques, utilization of training resources, examination and correction of student errors, human performance relevant to flight instruction, and hazards involved in simulating system failures and malfunctions in the aircraft.
During flight instruction, students learn teaching techniques including demonstration, student practices, recognition and correction of common student errors, flight maneuvers, and procedures.
As a Flight Instructor, you will acquire the skills necessary to make decisions and to act on your own observations. There are few more interesting moments than the feeling an instructor gets from sending his or her students for a first solo, a first solo cross country or a flight test. The skills and understanding you receive as Flight Instructor are priceless benefits.
