The Commercial Pilots Licence course requirements.
Your PPL flying will contribute approximately 65 hours total time, 10 hours PIC, 5 hours cross-country PIC and 4 hours instrument time towards your CPL requirements.
To meet the requirements for a CPL, the applicant must be at least 18 years old and hold a Class 1 Medical certification.
The pass mark for each CPL examination is 70%, except for Flight Rules & Air Law where the pass mark is 80%.
All examinations must be passed within a 2-year period, from the date of the first attempt, successful or otherwise, for a candidate to be awarded an CPL theory pass.
Most students prefer to self-study at home at their own pace. Students can book 1 on 1 tutoring with one of our experienced instructors.
The cost of conversion will depend on pilot experience level prior to flying the cirrus and also the amount of time and frequency you can dedicate to the course. We do quote basic estimates of around 10 hours flight time.
The Cirrus conversion course can be completed usually over a period of 3 or 4 days, with 1 or 2 flights per day. It is recommended to have finished the Cirrus Transition course online prior to any flight training.
As with any flight training, safety is the most important aspect, we will train you until a safe standard, so you are then comfortable yourself to fly off with family and friends.
The selection of whether to convert in the SR 20 or SR 22 will depend on a number of factors and can be discussed with us so that we can map out the best training path for you.
For example we have a Doctor who regularly had to attend clinics in regional NSW, he was an existing pilot but not on Cirrus, so what we did was construct a Cirrus converion course so that he could complete part of the syllabus at the same time as his travel requirements.
Unfortunately we dont offer credit of finance for the course and the cost for the hours flown will have to be paid on completion of the flight
