The CPL covers general handling, cross country VFR navigation including unplanned diversions, instrument flying including en-route IFR, use of radio aids and emergency procedures.
Skyways Flight Training offers the 25 Hour CPL course or the 15 Hour CPL course for holders of the JAA/EASA Instrument Rating or BIFM certificate. The 25 Hour course consists of 5 Hours FNPT2 simulator, 15 hours PA28 Warrior and 5 Hours PA28R Arrow complex single. Our 15 Hour course consists of 10 Hour PA28 Warrior and 5 Hours PA28R Complex Single
On successful completion of the skills test, students may apply for the CPL(A) once they have achieved 200 hours total time.
Financing your pilots career
All of Skyways modular training courses are self-funded. Financing is limited to personal loans. We operate a pay-as-you-go policy which means that you only pay for the training as you receive it. We don't ask for, nor will we take, large up-front payments from students. We accept credit/debit cards (except Amex), bank transfers, cheques and cash.
It may be possible for you to obtain a career development loan. This is a bank loan of up to $10,000 which has a reduced rate of interest and no repayments due until one month after course completion. For more information visit www.gov.uk/career-development-loans/overview.
