COMMERCIAL PILOT LICENCE
For many pilots, the idea of taking the seat of a First Officer once seemed to be a distant dream. But they gave the passion a chance to become a reality. Delicate scent of prestigious occupation, crisp pilot uniform and limitless horizons ahead. You name more. One day you can also confidently walk through the airport hall towards your office in the aircraft.
One of the most efficient, adventurous, although quite challenging pathways towards the cockpit is obtaining a Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL). Training required to get your CPL is a workable solution for some key reasons, including flexible scheme of studies and convenient payment schedules.

It is in your hands, to grow pilot wings and enjoy the perks of your professional life full of amazing destinations, new connections and impressive memories.
WHY IS IT WORTH CHOOSING CPL TRAINING?
Flexible structure of CPL training
The CPL program is based on a modular training system. It means that the entire program consists of separate stages. The great advantage is that you can eliminate the modules you have already done. For example, if you are a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) holder, you can skip this initial module in the CPL program and begin with another training stage. The final program plan is set in cooperation with our team.
With CPL training, you have enough flexibility to work or seek education in other fields at the same time.
Convenient payment scheme
CPL training is a wise choice in terms of payment. There is no need to cover the entire amount for the CPL course upon the start of training. Under individual agreements and conditions, you can arrange your payment schedule and do it in set instalments.
Additional 30+ flight hours
In case you are considering whether to pick CPL or Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) training, one of the features coming in support of CPL is the number of flight hours. CPL training contains 30+ flight hours to sharpen your practical skills.
WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH A CPL?
The CPL is your entry ticket to professional aviation. After you successfully complete all the CPL training modules, including ATPL theory, you become a holder of a commercial pilot licence with a so-called ‘frozen ATPL’. To ‘un-frozen’ the licence you will need to build a required number of flight hours and do the last steps towards the dream job.
If you fulfil all the conditions and meet the requirements, then you will be ready to proceed with final qualifications necessary to take up a First Officer’s position at an airline of your choice.

Area 100 KSA (Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes) is a new subject in theoretical pilot training. It follows a competency-based training and assessment (CBTA) philosophy and is often referred to as a “paradigm shift” that modernizes flight crew training.
The aim of Area 100 KSA is to develop and access student pilots’ certain behavioral competencies besides the technical ones. The competencies based on ICAO core principles are the following: communication, leadership and teamwork, problem-solving and decision-making, situation awareness, workload management, and application of knowledge.
Students will have to complete one formative assessment, two summative ones, and one mental math test during the learning process. The assessments will verify whether the students are fully equipped with the relevant competencies and have developed a “thinking pilot’s” mindset.

Student aftercare program
As part of the student aftercare program, all our ATPL Integrated and CPL Modular training programs’ students get a guaranteed 20% discount for their SEP(land), MEP(land), SEP / IR(A) and MEP / IR(A) rating renewal or revalidation for maintaining licence currency within three years after graduating.
The student aftercare program also ensures that our trainees receive proper mentorship not only while studying but also after they are done with their training. BAA Training academy works with many airlines worldwide, providing their flight crews with professional training. Often airlines ask us to refer our independent students who are about to finish or have just finished studies to them to be offered employment. Our independent candidates work in airlines such as Wizz Air, CityJet, Ryanair, GetJet, SmartLynx, Avion Express, Condor, Royal Air Morocco, Nordica, AirBaltic, Norra, etc.
One more benefit under the scope of the program is a free Pilot Skills Profile Test via AON’s assessment solutions (https://assessment.aon.com/en-us). This test will be helpful for graduates to understand what valuable skills they have and which ones need improvement. This tool is used by prominent airlines such as SAS, Aer Lingus, Ryanair, etc., to select the best pilots. Therefore, it could be beneficial for pilots to self-access their knowledge and abilities before going to the airlines’ interviews.
