CPL COURSE

Originally designed for the training of South African Air Force Aircrew the advanced theoretical training have been in development since 1993. The material has been extended significantly to include CAA SA Commercial Licensing.

The series of self-study lessons includes the PPL modules and the aim of the course is to train private pilot license holders to a standard that will enable them to pass the prescribed SACAA CPL examinations.
