Do you want to become a commercial pilot?

April 28th, 2021 Posted by Bristol & Wessex Aeroplane Club

We are pleased to announce the exciting news that we have recently formed a partnership with modular flying training provider Aeros at Gloucester to offer our student pilots the ability to progress on from our private pilots licence course to obtain a commercial pilots licence with Aeros.

This new partnership opens up new possibilites for students who want to go on and obtain a commercial pilot licence to either fly for airlines, or other flying roles as a long term career. A commercial pilot licence (CPL), is a type of pilot licence that permits the holder to act as a pilot of an aircraft and be paid for his/her work.

What are the requirements?

Applicants for a commercial pilot licence must be at least 18 years old, hold a valid Class 1 medical certificate, have met the specified practical and theoretical training requirements laid down including at least 200 hours flying time including 100 hours flying experience acting as the pilot in command, 20 hours ‘cross-country’ flying experience with at least one solo flight of not fewer than 300 nautical miles with full-stop landings at two or more different aerodromes and five hours of night instruction including five take-offs and landings if the privileges are to be exercised at night.

To find out more visit our Commercial Flying Training page, or drop us an email to find out further details.
