Modular Commercial Pilot License (CPL(A)) Training Course

Modular Commercial Pilot License Training Course is designed for those who want to harmonize the needs with the possibilities. Lasting more than ATPL integrated course but requiring less investments, CPL training course can be divided into ‘modules’. The biggest advantage of the modular program is the training for mandatory courses composed to gain a ATPL frozen license at the convenient time.

After the completion of the course, students are eligible to operate as private pilots or co-pilots on single/multi-engine airplanes in the area of JAA/EASA by obtaining the PPL and CPL/IR/ME licenses.

‘The truth is that sometimes airline pilots mastering the metal birds weighting
 around 40 tons catch themselves envying those flying beyond them,
 playing around the lake, turning around trees and doing
mind-blowing maneuvers – because they cannot do that themselves“,
 Peter Moysidis, ab initio trainings instructor at the Baltic Aviation Academy’.

The modular training program consists of two training stages:

  • First stage – PPL training course;
  • Second stage – CPL/IR training course.




Students must be at least 18 years old.
