Why don’t you find a job that meets your passion?

A Commercial Pilot License (CPL) allows you to fly as a helicopter pilot in command or copilot for public transportation or aerial work operations.

Many of us started dreaming about flying an helicopter being a child, then we finally jumped into this exciting project.

Despite the rumors, becoming a civilian professional helicopter pilot is far from being impossible, but it requires consideration, time, courage, and motivation.

The Modular program is dedicated to pilot that already hold a Helicopter Private license (PPL-H).

Or you decided to jump into commercial after getting you PPL

Or you start from zero and want to follow the Modular program : PPL then build some flight hours to get some  experience by yourself or accompanied by an instructor), study the 13 EASA theoretical exams subjects,  and finally complete the modular CPL Training Course.

Definitely a longer day than the integrated CPL solution but that can have some benefit regarding student personal possibilities (professional retraining, finance, …… or just to take your time)
