Diploma of Aviation (Commercial Pilots Licence - Aeroplane) AVI50215

This course comprises of the Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL), Private Pilot Licence (PPL)and Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) curriculum. (Note the tuition fees for this course include the costs of the RPL and PPL units of study.

During the CPL stage, students start flying faster and more complex aircraft such as the Piper Arrow or Cessna 206

The theoretical knowledge required by a commercial pilot is significantly more complex than a private pilot. This section of the course takes longer, as students learn theory to a far greater depth.

This part of the course can be the most fun for students. Now that they hold a Private Pilot License, students typically go in small groups on fly-aways. These fly-aways can be to places like the Gold Coast or Uluru. Students need to have practice being able to navigate considerable distances and be responsible for aircraft over long trips.
