How much does a Commercial Pilot Licence cost?

The Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) course sees you progress through RPL and PPL syllabus before moving onto CPL theory and practical training, and then hour building as you accumulate at least 150 flying hours. The cost will vary based on the aircraft that you choose to fly in during your training, and there are specific aircraft requirements for CPL that may mean you need to change aircraft when you start the CPL syllabus.

The most economical way to obtain a CPL is with our CPL flight package. The package includes all of the required theory and practical aircraft training, and minimum flying hours, and also makes use of our state-of-the-art simulators to keep costs down.

Note that there are ancillary items that are not included in the package that you will incur during your training, such as landing fees at other aerodromes. Many students end up flying more than the minimum hours before they take their CPL flight test, so that also needs to be considered. You may wish to add in multi-engine training as well. Example CPL packages prices are listed below.

CPL package flying in a Diamond DA40 $77,995
Add in multi-engine training in a Diamond DA42 $83,135
