The most affordable path to a Commercial Helicopter Pilot Licence in New Zealand

Start your career as a professional pilot! The Commercial Helicopter pilot licence (CPL-H) will enable you to fly for ‘hire or reward’.

As of 2015, eligible students can apply for funding the Commercial and Flight Instructor Diploma Courses through the Student Loan Studylink assisted loan funded places scheme. Please see our NZQA courses page for full information.

Obtaining your helicopter commercial pilot licence will open up a new chapter with continual challenges and stimulation on a daily basis.

Based from North Shore airfield, once you have passed your Private Pilot Licence PPL-H your commercial course can begin. You will build on the achievements to date and begin with underslung load training. This will fine tune your hovering skills and teach you the importance of power management. Together with advanced navigation exercises and the intricacies of mountainous terrain flying you will be well on your way to obtaining your commercial pilot licence and the start of a new career.

An average Commercial Pilot Licence - Helicopter will take up to one-year full time (including the PPL-H), but dependant on your commitment and budget can be achieved in a lot less than that.
