60 hours of flying

20 hours of dual flying

20 hours of solo flying

5 hours cross country flying

The written test has to be passed in topics such as:

After obtaining the PPL, the candidate will be needed to fly another 190 hours to get the Commercial Pilot’s License (CPL). In addition to this, a radio telephone license and flight radio operator’s license have got to be obtained as well. Once the written test is cleared, aspirants will have to clear the medical tests.
