EASA CPL(H) & (A) Distance Learning Course

A modular self-study program for the EASA CPL(H), in three modules, geared for 250 hours of home study, with a 1-week consolidation period at the CAPT offices. The material itself is not difficult to master, but there is a lot of it, so you should allow about 4 months for the whole process, including taking the exams, based on 6 hours a day, Monday to Friday, but this could be longer or (slightly) shorter, depending on your aptitude, finances, weather, family commitments, etc. (a more realistic figure is 15 study hours per week, which means 6 months).

There are thirteen subjects to be covered, but it may be worth considering taking the ATPL(H), always being aware that there is a time limit within which you must gain enough experience to unfreeze the ATPL(H) subjects (seven years, but three for the IR(H)). If you miss the time limit, you remain at the CPL(H) level and will have to retake the ATPL(H) exams later.

To start the course, you must hold an ICAO PPL(H), and have enough knowledge of maths and physics to understand the course content, although much of what you need is included. It is recommended that you obtain a Class 1 medical, because all the studying in the world is no use unless you pass it. It is also recommended that you obtain 100 flying hours, because the subject matter is better understood if you have some flying experience.

Progress tests (below) should be completed and submitted every week (by email), and you must gain a pass mark of 75%. We are obliged to keep a close eye on your progress, and there is an 18-month window in which to complete your studies, and another 18 months to complete the exams, from the date of your first exam. For the support service, we are available on telephone, skype and email, and if we can't give you an immediate answer, we aim to produce a solution within 24 hours.

  • The entry to any course costs £395, to include PDF study notes, inclusion on to our study area on Aviation Exam (plus global access to their database), and all the hangers-on, such as VAT and bank charges, which we incur on your behalf when setting up your training file. This is non-refundable.

  • Consolidation days are charged as and when you need them, at £135 per day, including VAT. Each day consists of 8 study hours.

The eventual cost of a full CPL(H) course to an ICAO PPL(H) holder would therefore be £800 as only 25 hours are required in the classroom (3 days).

As of mid 2016, the exams cost £68 per paper.

Don't forget accommodation, and that some items required for the course, such as the Jeppesen Manual, Douglas Protractor, Flight Computer, etc. are not included in the course prices, as we figure that students will have their own preferences.

This course also includes a Single Pilot CRM certificate. If you need a flight computer and Jeppesen Student Pilot Manual (for Navigation & Flight Planning) we have arranged a special package price with Pooleys Flight Equipment at £95 plus shipping. For any other products you might require, quote the letters CAPT for a 5% discount.

Progress Tests

These progress tests are for the use of CAPT students. If you are not a CAPT student but have stumbled across them, you may use them as an aid for your own studies, as a gesture of goodwill on our part, but they are NOT a replacement for the online databases (as listed below). You may not alter, deface, sell or otherwise distribute them.
