A commercial pilot licence (CPL) gives the right to aviation for commercial purposes by either aeroplane (A) or helicopter (H).

A CPL holder may carry passengers or cargo against payment or act as pilot-in-command on an aircraft for which only one pilot is required according to the Flight Manual. On multi-pilot aircraft, a CPL holder can act as co-pilot.

You can participate in CPL training without prior initial training. The training is also open to holders of a leisure pilot licence or a private pilot licence. If you apply for a CPL and already have a pilot licence of some kind, it can be credited towards the CPL. The pilot school providing the training evaluates possible credits case by case.
