The skills test is the last hurdle in the course and required Andy to demonstrate a variety of skills to prove his capability as a pilot.

Andy, after passing the skills test, can now start taking family and friends up with him to share his passion for flying. This will involve Andy hiring the helicopter for his person use, building hours while he studies for the commercial examinations.

Congratulations Andy, now get studying so you can make your commercial pilot dreams a reality!
