New Airline Pilot Training Program

The academy's Integrated ATPL has been designed to ensure the highest level of competency to fly in the most demanding airlines across the world and to prepare the students for real-life circumstances.

The new program includes not only the latest and future EASA requirements, such as KSA, Advanced UPRT, CBTA, and TEM, but also innovates including:

  • 40 hours of APS MCC in an AIRBUS 320 FFS LEVEL D. This APS MCC doubles the hours of a standard MCC, greatly increasing the preparation for an airline simulator assessment
  • Gliding - 3 flights of Basic Gliding in their training program, as well as theory classes. It is becoming more and more common for airlines to add gliding sessions to their training structures in order to improve handling skills, thus counteracting the automation effect
  • Training is orientated to airline requirements, with a focus on soft skills complementing technical skills, following ICAO Core competencies
  • Unlimited access to a controlled training simulator
  • 100% in new generation glass cockpit fleet with highest environmental respect with consumption up to 50% lower than the equivalent old fleet
  • Night flights in a multi-engine airplane
  • End-to-end follow-up including one-to-one reinforcement training and Career Advice preparation

Contact us or join one of our Open Days to learn about our program or to discover if becoming a Pilot is a good option for you.

Why the EASA License?

The most recognized License by Aviation Authorities throughout the world. Thanks to its higher standards
compared to the FAA License and more reliable student tracking records, Aviation Authorities tend to prefer to hire EASA license holders.

FAA requires a mínimum 1500 flight hours to work as First Officer in an Airline in many countries, such as the US. However, EASA holders have no limitation to fly as First Officers in any Airline after the completion of the ATPL Integrated course, with a minimum of a total 220 hours.
