Commercial Pilot License
Commercial pilot licence (CPL), is a type of license that permits the holder to get paid for working as a pilot of an aircraft.
The basic requirements to obtain the license and the privileges are agreed internationally by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The CPL is basically a more advanced PPL, requiring greater accuracy in flying and a higher standard of airmanship. The holder of a CPL is able to act as pilot in command of a small piston-engine aircraft that holds less than 9 passengers for commercial purposes such as revenue flights in visual conditions (VMC). The minimum age to hold a CPL is 18 years old.
