Modular Commercial Pilot Training

About Modular Pilot Training

As an alternative to our Integrated training, students can choose a modular pilot training approach to becoming a commercial pilot. Modular training at BCFT still offers the same industry leading standards, comprehensive course content and structured student support. You’ll get the advantage of learning in your own time and at your own pace.

In order to become a commercial airline pilot you are required to achieve all qualifications, licenses and ratings to get you to a frozen ATPL (whether via a full time integrated course or on a modular basis). A modular course gives students the flexibility and time to complete the training on a module by module basis. Some students choose to earn as they learn, some are exploring other aspects of the aviation industry at the same time whilst others are still in other employment.

Once all training modules are complete, students can then apply for a First Officer position at a commercial airline.

4. Hour Building

Course Overview

Looking to build up hours to progress your commercial pilot training? Whilst there is no set structure to logging more flying hours, we advise that you are aware of the below key criteria you must meet to begin the CPL training.

Course Requirements

Total Hours – 169
PIC Hours – 100
Cross Country Hours – 20
QXC – Qualifying Cross Country – a 300nm cross country with two stops at aerodromes different to the one of departure

Included in this Course

BCFT work with a number of preferred partners for hour building across the UK and internationally. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.

BCFT’s Top Tips

The legal requirement to begin the Commercial Pilots Licence training is to hold at least a total of 150 hours, of which 100 are PIC (Pilot in Command/solo). At BCFT we ask our students to begin their training for the Multi-Engine CPL with 169 hours total. The reason for this is that you have to have 200 hours at the time of your CPL test. The MEP is a 6 hour course and the CPL is a 25 hour course. Once you have completed those two modules you will have the correct hours to be eligible for the test.
