Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL) and Commercial Pilots Licence (CPL)

Commercial and private licences training are carried out on three axis aircrafts; this is an aircraft that when in flight can rotate in three dimensions using the Pitch, Yaw and Roll axis. The axes are alternatively designed as lateral, vertical and longitudinal. With a Private Pilot's Licence, the pilot can carry more passengers and with no weight restrictions, however this depends largely on the aircraft. The licence is for local and long distance flying. A Commercial Pilot's Licence is a licence used to fly professionally. A Helicopter Private Pilot Licence, allows you to operate a helicopter. There are no weight restrictions; however this depends largely on the helicopter.
