I think this page needs some rewriting. First, it does not mention Part 141. Second, I don't think it is necessary to duplicate the FAR, since it is available online and is in theory subject to change. I would add a discussion of the value of the certificate, and the restrictions for Part 91 operations. And there are some grammar fixes.

Then it needs to be harmonized with the Private and Instrument rating descriptions. Also, the Private certificate is described on overlapping ways on the Private Pilot License page and the Aviator page, so that should be tidied up.

I'll leave this a few days to see if anyone comments. DavidBrooks 20:25, 3 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Licence spelling[edit]

Explanation: in the spring of 2005 there was some discussion between US/Canada/UK editors over the spelling of Licen[cs]e. At the same time, the existing articles were getting unwieldy as they were describing differing licensing schemes in several English-speaking countries. So we created separate articles for different jurisdictions. Then, in index articles like this, the compromise position was that the UK spelling should be used because the correct word in the US is "certificate"; the word "license" has no formal meaning.

And, of course, the de interwiki has to use the de spelling. David Brooks

License vs Certificate[edit]

In aviation, typically pilots licenses are refered to as " Pilot Certificates." Requesting page title change to "Commercial Pilot Certificate" Will (talk) 22:31, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

There is currently a redirect for "License" that leads here, to "Licence." Technically, the page should have neither nomenclature, and should be named "Commercial Pilot Certificate." However, I do not know the name of the requested move template. If anyone could help, it would be appreciated. Thanks, -xwingsx- (talk) 14:41, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

As the article states, the term Commercial Pilot Certificate is a US term. Elsewhere (UK, Australia for example) Commercial Pilot Licence is the normal term. A move would be inappropriate. (talk) 06:54, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

Licence spelling (again)[edit]

See "Licence spelling" above. The article now has a mixture of "c" and "s" - a single spelling would appear preferable. It seems to be sensible that, as the US doesn't call it a license, and most countries that do, use the spelling licence for the noun, "licence" should be used uniformly. The PPL page should also be made consistent. (talk) 07:09, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

Medical Certification Requirements[edit]

The statement "To proceed in obtaining a commercial pilot license, the applicant must first obtain first-class medical certification." is clearly wrong for US/FAA certification. Only a 3rd class medical certificate is required to take the practical test for a commercial pilot certificate, and only a 2nd class medical certificate is required to exercise most privileges of the commercial certificate with certain exceptions for flight instruction (only 3rd class is needed).
