Commercial Pilot License (CPL) and Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL)
The courses for the Commercial Pilot License (CPL) and Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) are modular courses. This means that you will need to get your PPL before you can start the CPL course. The CPL course consists of 9 subjects, which all need to be finished with a passing grade within 18 months.
The theoretical part of the CPL course has been transferred to the Orbit Groundschool in Arnhem. The theoretical subjects can be done in either a day- or an evening course there. The day course will take about 17 weeks and the evening course around 1.5 years. For more information, see Orbit Groundschool.
The exercises of the CPL course are in many ways similar to the PPL course. However, the requirements for experience and accuracy are higher. The legally required number of flight hours for the CPL exam is 185. The CPL allows you to fly commercially for an airline company.
