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.

This is a summary of how the Zero to Airline course is split

Course Pre-Entry Requirements

1. Private Pilot License

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.


Course Duration: Full Time (2 to 3  Months)

  • Minimum 45 hours Total Flight Time
  • Minimum of 25 hours of dual instruction
  • Minimum of 10 hours of solo flight
  • 9 Theoretical Knowledge Exams




2. 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.

3. 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.

Night Rating

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.

84 flight hours PIC flying program

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.

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 Diamond DA42 for the multi engine IR and the FNPT II for the synthetic portion of the training.

4. Professional Flight Training

5. Instrument Rating and Multi Engine Rating

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 commercial pilot training providing a certain insight into airline and multi-crew conditions.

6. IR Course

15 hours flying instruction on Diamond DA42, 30 hours flying instruction in the Simulator.

Commercial Pilot License

The CPL course consists of:

    • Minimum 25 hours dual flying instruction on the Warrior/Diamond DA42.

For holders of IR /ME Licence:

    • 5 hours flying instruction on Diamond DA42.
    • 10 hours flying instruction on Piper Warrior.
    • 18 years of age.
    • 200 hours total flying time to include:
    • Minimum 100 Hours PIC.
    • Minimum 20 Hours VFR Cross Country.
    • A cross country flight of at least 300NM landing in at least 2 different aerodromes apart from the departure aerodrome.
