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. They are then eligible to join the airlines as a First Officer. The training covers all levels from no experience to a professional EASA Commercial Pilot’s License with a Multi-Engine and Instrument Rating.
The aim of the PPL training is to teach the student pilot to fly safely and efficiently by day. The Private Pilot License can be extended by the qualification for a Night Rating and Basic Instrument Flight Module, or to continue your flight training towards a commercial license for an airline pilot.
Full Time – 2 to 3 Months
The PPL Course Consists Of:
Minimum 45 hours Total Flight Time
Minimum of 25 hours of dual instruction
Minimum of 10 hours of solo flight
9 Theoretical Knowledge Exams
Airline Transport Pilot License Theory
European Pilot Academy EASA ATPL Ground Theory is a state-of-the-art digital training system. Our residential and distance learning modules allow you to progress at your own pace. It has been carefully designed to split the subjects across modules; each module has a distance learning phase followed by classroom sessions to consolidate your learning, clear any misunderstandings and prepare you for the ATPL Theoretical Exams.Air Law, Operational Procedures, Human Performance & Limitations, VFR Communications, IFR Communications, Aircraft General Knowledge, Instrumentation, Principles of Flight, Flight Planning, Performance, Mass & Balance, Meteorology, Radio Navigation, General Navigation.
ADVANCED FLIGHT TRAINING
During the ATPL theory training program, the following training will be conducted, 5 Hours of night flight training, 5 Hours of Instrument Flight training, 5 Hours of Instrument FSTD / FNPT II Simulator training.
The Night Rating allows a single engine pilot to transit to the aircraft under night visual flight rules (VFR) . This enables the pilot to operate in post sunset conditions in full darkness, which is a whole different persion compared to operating during daylight.
87 flight hours PIC flying program
Student pilots will be required to continue the flying to build the flight experience required towards the Multi Engine rating, Instrument rating and Commercial Pilot Licence. The PIC flight time will support the student pilot to develop the flying skills required while being assessed for the required skills as well as learning new ones.
Basic Instrument Flight Training
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.
Professional Flight Training
The aim of the Instrument Rating (IR) modular course is to train PPL(A) or CPL(A) holders to a standard that will allow them to operate aircraft under Instrument Flight Rules and in instrument meteorological conditions. The IR module consists of flying training in the Piper Seneca II for the multi engine IR and the FNPT II for the synthetic portion of the training.
The multi engine class rating allows a single engine pilot to transit to the twin engine aircraft under visual flight rules (VFR). This is also officially the start of the commercial pilot training providing a certain insight into airline and multi crew conditions.
