Ground studies : CPL vs ATPL (JAA/EASA)
In one year or so, I'll have to convert my Canadian CPL to an EASA/JAA one.
A friend of mine who did exactly the same few months ago (except it was an ATPL conversion and not a CPL one) gave me all his (ATPL) books so that I could study earlier.
I don't know if some members of PPRuNe have made a CPL and an ATPL after that, but here is my question :
I don't want to be an airline pilot, I just want to fly single engine props and do only aerial work without passengers. I'm reading all the books my friend gave me but ... I don't give a **** about all the complex stuffs I'm reading and which clearly concern only ATPL pilot. So, is the CPL really easier than the ATPL or will I have to deal with almost all the crap I'm currently reading in order to convert my CPL ?
