CPL(A) – Commercial Pilots Licence Modular Flying Course

Thinking of a career in aviation? Shoreham Aviation Flight Centre being a satellite school of the ATO Redhill Aviation, is able to train pilots to the level required to operate single or multi-engine aeroplanes safely, efficiently and to the prescribed proficiency standards necessary for the issue of CPL(A). We offer the flight training for those pursuing the modular route into commercial aviation. This enables the student to be much more flexible in the way in which they train. The training period can be more flexible and certain aspects can be carried out in the order best required. 

The CPL requires a minimum of 25 hours, with some instrument flying appreciation. At least 5 of the hours must be in a complex aircraft, all our prices below are for the full course in our complex type PA28R (G-EDVL).

To start the course, you will need to have flown a minimum of 150 hours and have successfully passed the 13 CPL (or 14 ATPL) theory exams. This can be achieved through self-study or a full-time course – we can assist in selecting a suitable school.


The CPL allows you to carry passengers on Public Transport flights. In order to extend your PPL licence, you will need to acquire a higher degree of pilot skills, accuracy and situational awareness.

  • 150 hours total flying time
  • 18 years of age
