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
