COMMERCIAL HELICOPTER LICENCE (CPL (H))

LOOKING FOR A CAREER IN AVIATION?

A commercial helicopter licence (CPL (H)) allows the holder to fly for hire or reward anywhere in Australia. By gaining a Commercial Pilot License, you will be able to fly for hire and reward. In other words you are allowed to make flying your career. A private license does not allow you to fly for hire and reward. During your training to become a Commercial Helicopter Pilot, you will need to complete the following:

  • Aviation reference number (ARN)
  • ASIC card
  • Class 1 medical
  • Radio Telephone operator licence (gained during your practical training)
  • Pass the 7 CPL (H) theory exams
  • Pass the CPL (H) flight test
  • Minimum of 125 hours of flight training (this is commonly reduced to 105 hours if the last 30 hours are completed within 90 days)
  • testimony-img "Coming up here was a great decision. I have had the opportunity to train with highly experienced instructors who have diverse helicopter industry backgrounds. I trained in the bush off the airport, in terrain and scenarios where and how helicopters are designed to operate. Every day I was exposed to a busy commercial helicopter operation and I was actively involved with the maintenance crew – a must in my opinion. I also got to live in the Kimberley, the view never gets old and the people are great."

  • testimony-img "The decision was easy for me when choosing to do my training with AHA. They have experienced instructors who have incredible experience in all areas of the helicopter industry such as long lining, fire fighting, mustering etc. Being exposed to a large helicopter business has also been brilliant as you get real insight into how a professional helicopter company is run and what they expect from a professional pilot. Having LAME’s and Avionics engineers on hand has been a huge bonus as they gave me a solid understanding to the ins and outs of a wide range of aircraft. Most of all l was influenced with the scenario based flying and the attention to detail that AHA provide so I can become a true professional in the industry."
