Integrated CPL(H) with ATPL(H)/IR TK

Integrated CPL(H)

The Integrated CPL(H) (with ATPL(H)/IR theory) is a 12 month, full-time programme delivered on-site* Monday to Friday, for students wishing to obtain their commercial pilot licence (helicopter) on an intensive basis. ATPL(H)/IR  theoretical knowledge gives students the best options for future progression if intending to obtain a modular instrument rating (a separate course).

Students are expected to reside locally, attend all classes in accordance with the schedule provided, and complete the required homework outside of scheduled lessons. This is the fastest and most intense way to obtain a CPL(H) therefore commitment and self-discipline is essential.

We have announced that two £5,000 scholarships may be awarded to stand-out applicants. If you are selected for a scholarship, the award will be notified prior to the course start date and deducted from the fees due.

Next intake: HC2 – 6th January 2021
Closing Date: Application window closes 6th December
