Apply for a Multi-crew Pilot Licence

A Multi-crew Pilot Licence (MPL) allows you to fly as a Pilot-In-Command or co-pilot of a Singapore-registered aircraft, for the aircraft types or groups as endorsed in the licence. You may also fly as a co-pilot for public transport or aerial work, if you meet certain regulatory and licensing requirements.

To obtain a MPL, you must

  • be at least 18 years old;
  • be able to read, write and communicate in English at a working level; and
  • meet the Class 1 medical requirements.

In addition, you will need to complete a training programme with a CAAS approved Aviation Training Organisation to acquire theoretical knowledge and practical experience. You must also pass the basic knowledge examinations and flight test administered by CAAS and meet all regulatory licensing requirements.

More detailed requirements can be found in Singapore Air Safety Publication Part 2 (PDF, 330 KB).
