Integrated Helicopter Commercial Pilot Course

Commercial Helicopter Pilot

With this program we prepare the student with the theoretical knowledge and practical training needed to obtain the Integrated Commercial Helicopter Pilot License (CPL-H), recognized by EASA I European Aviation Safety Agency, in a professional environment in VFR flight conditions.

Applicants for this program may be admitted as ab-initio students or as holders of a PPL (H) License.

Once our Integrated Helicopter Commercial Pilot Program is completed, you will be able to work as a professional pilot in observation and patrol flights, aerial filming and photography, air taxi, tourist flights and advertising, among other options. You can also combine it with other options in external load, fire and rescue operations.

An important step to later consider applying for the Airline Transport Pilot License, thanks to the different academic programs offered by the World Aviation Flight Academy.

I had no experience in aviation. I liked it and I did it, you just have to put the will and effort into it. Today I work as a firefighting pilot. What I liked most about World Aviation is the team that makes it up.

Helped me finish the CPL phase when my original ATO in Malaga let me down. Efficient, helpful, willing to listen and understand my circumstances in order to build a custom course. Very responsive, no delays. Shaved easily 3-6 months off my training timeline. I couldn’t ask for better, bravo!
