Project Description

Commercial Pilot Licence

Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL)

There are many reasons to go on and obtain your CPL. For some it will be just to become more professional and proficient in their personal flying. For others it is a pathway to a new career. At SFT we offer the non-integrated CPL course. This means you are not required to commit to a full time, expensive course and can learn and train at your own pace. It is suited to self-paced self-funded individuals looking for a quality training experience.

This is a basic single engine CPL. You can add on modules to do an instrument rating or multi engine rating. As well you can go on to do an instructor rating. The pricing is a guide to the basic CPL.
