How long does it take to obtain a pilot licence?

A Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL) typically takes 30 – 35 hours of flight time. A Private Pilot Licence (PPL) typically takes another 30 – 35 hours of flight time. A Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) will take 150 (Integrated) hours or 200 hours (Non-Integrated) of flight time from scratch. The time it takes you will depend heavily on how frequently you are able to fly, how flexible your schedule is, and your overall commitment to study. We have the aircraft and instructor availability for you to complete your licences as fast as you are able to pass each of the required competencies.
