To become a pilot, it is necessary to fully learn the difference between a private pilot and a commercial pilot. A person aspiring for a commercial pilot license has to become a private pilot first.
A private pilot is a person who holds a private pilot license which permits the person to fly an aircraft for enjoyment and private purposes. A private pilot can rent an aircraft or carry passengers but is never allowed to get any compensation for their pilot services. This simply implies that, unlike a commercial pilot, a private pilot can neither be hired nor get paid for flying. The requirements of being a private pilot include being 17 years of age and being able to write, speak, read and understand the English language.
The main requirement of being a commercial pilot is a private pilot license. Additionally, a person must be 18 years of age and have a good command of the English language. A commercial pilot is authorized to get paid for and earn a living from flying an aircraft and carrying passengers. You can also choose to become either a charter pilot, a cargo pilot or a flight instructor.
There are different types of commercial pilot licenses for every kind of aircraft, such as single engine, sea-planes, multi-engine and many others, depending on the holder’s qualification. A commercial pilot license is issued by the governing aviation authorities after an aspirant has successfully completed the training and met the necessary requirements.
