The commercial pilot licence (CPL) stage provides understanding of how to handle an aircraft like a commercial pilot, thus enhancing the advancement of your aviation career.

The following matrix lays out estimated hours and total cost to complete the unit. However, it should be noted that, as each student is different, more (or less) hours may be required and this will effect the total price. Fewer hours will be required for a student that flies often, as less remedial work is needed. All prices stated are in AUD, and based off the rates for our Piper Archer III and Cessna 206.
