Commercial Pilot License

The Commercial Pilot License (CPL) is the foundational license you will require if your goal is to fly for hire.  It is recognized internationally, and as such allows you to fly in Canada and around the world.  

This license includes the Night and VFR Over the Top Rating, and allows for the addition of several other ratings, such as a multi-engine or instrument rating (see Flight Training page for more information).
