Many aspiring pilots aim to become Commercial Pilots and have start a career in aviation. To receive remuneration for flying, a pilot must hold a valid CPL or ATPL. PPL holders may not receive any remuneration for flying. So, to start your flying career, you'll first have to attain a CPL. One way to get to this point is to do an integrated CPL, where you do not do a PPL first, and then a CPL. With an integrated CPL you start off by doing your CPL immediately. However, in South Africa there are only one or two flight schools that offer integrated CPL's. At Luv2Fly we actually don't mind this. We believe that a PPL is a license to allow a pilot to practice to become more competent, proficient and safe - a license to learn. Therefor we do not offer an integrated CPL, as we encourage students to get a PPL and then take to the skies, and better themselves. Luckily, all these hours flown as Pilot in Command count towards the requirement for a CPL.
