The Cadet courses start from Basic Cadet Level. The Basic Cadet level will give a clear indication to the student where s/he would like to continue in the Aviation industry. The Advanced Cadet level will then go into more detail on the sector of the industry that s/he would like to focus on, be it that as a Pilot or as an Aircraft Engineer.
Zero to Airline
Our Zero to Airline Pilot training takes students with no previous flying experience up to ‘Commercial Pilot’ with a Frozen ATPL in around 18 to 20 months from where they are then eligible to join the airlines as a First Officer. The training covers all levels from no experience to professional European Commercial Pilot’s Licence with a Multi-Engine and Instrument Rating.
Private Pilot’s License
The Private Pilot’s License is the first step to get yourself into the skies, whether you just wish to fly as a hobby, or to begin a career. Like all our other courses, we offer the PPL (A) on a modular training system. It consists of ground theory as well as flight training.
Airline Transport Pilot’s License
The Airline Transport Pilot’s License is the highest grade of piloting that one can achieve. It also allows for the holder to eventually captain a large aircraft on a scheduled flight, such as working as an airline captain. European Pilot Academy was the FIRST ATO in Malta that allows you to achieve your frozen ATPL in Malta, without having to go abroad for any of the consolidation classes or exams.
Commercial Pilot’s License
The Commercial Pilot’s License is required to get paid for the time that one is flying. It is usually the last step towards becoming an airline pilot.
The night rating allows you to be able to fly aircraft during the time of ‘night’ as qualified by ICAO, being the time from 30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes before sunrise.
The Multi Engine Piston Rating allows one to fly an aircraft with more than one piston engine. It is usually done in conjunction with the Commercial Pilot’s License. However, we do also offer it as a standalone course.
The Instrument Rating allows the pilot to fly under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR), which is required for flights such as through cloud cover. It is the next step for a lot of pilots who wish to further a career in aviation. It is usually done in conjunction with the Commercial Pilot’s License.
Basic Instrument Flight Module
Basic Instrument Flight Module (BIFM) comprises 10 hours of instrument time under instruction, of which up to 5 hours can be instrument ground time in our FNPT II flight simulator. Upon satisfactorily completing the BIFM as a separate course the applicant is issued with a BIFM course completion certificate.
License Conversion From ICAO to EASA
The method taken to obtain a EASA license will depend on your current license(s) held, the license you are trying to obtain, and the hours or types of aircraft you have experience on have been set forth in the regulations of JAR‐FCL 1.
