The Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL)

is a qualification that permits the

holder to fly for economical purpose

as a PIC or a Second-In-Command

(SIC) on board of a civil aircraft.

In the scale of licences, just before the

CPL, comes the PPL that permits the

holder to act as the PIC and to fly an air-

craft that carries no paying passengers.

In order to start the training for the

CPL, it is mandatory to have obtained

the PPL, to have a good knowledge of

English, having attended 250 hours of

theoretical lessons (or to have at-

tended a distance learning course

which includes 250 hours and 25

hours frontal lessons in class) and at

least 150 flight hours. Further the

rules between a VFR and a IFR flight

change and therefore a specific in-

strumental flight qualification is re-

quired.

In order to get the aeronautical licence

in Italy and to exercise its privileges, it

is required to obtain the First-Class Air-

man Medical Certificate issued by one

of the Air Force Medical Centers lo-

cated in Rome, Bari or Milan.

These medical examinations are re-

quired annually up to the age of 40

years, and half-yearly thereafter.

The next level after the CPL is the the-

oretical ATPL licence, after which it is

possible to obtain the practical quali-

fication for specific aircrafts (Type

Rating).
