FLYING HOURS: The minimum total number of flying hours required for a Commercial Licence is 200, of which a minimum of 100hrs must be flown as Pilot in Command (PIC). A maximum of 20 hrs may be flown in an approved FSTD (Simulator). A reduced rate can be arranged with the flying school for a bulk number of hours bought for CPL hour-building.
Although it is not a requirement by law, it is highly recommended that a Commercial Pilot qualifies with a R44 Conversion and a Night Rating as this is the expected industry minima in order to obtain employment.
There are a number of other options that can be included in the CPL hour-building, such as:
★ A Turbine Conversion (5 to 10hrs dual instruction).
★ An Instrument Rating (a further 15hrs dual instruction in the aircraft).
★ An Instructor's Rating (20hrs dual instructors patter in the aircraft).
