What aircraft can I fly with a commercial pilot license (CPL)?
A Commercial Pilot License allows you to fly single-engine aircraft (Cessna 172, Diamond Da40, Piper M350, etc.) and dual-engine aircraft (Piper Seneca, Diamond DA42, Beechcraft Baron, etc.). Both types are used for CPL flight training. A CPL holder can also fly any aircraft as long as its maximum takeoff weight is 5,700 kg. More than that weight, a Type Rating or Instrument Rating is needed. The type of aircraft you can fly also depends on the type of job you have as a pilot. For example, a Flight Instructor usually flies the single-engine or twin-engine aircraft used in flight training while an Air Taxi or Charter Pilot usually flies a Winair Twin Otter or others of the same type and category.
