ATPL (A) training information:

The Airline Pilot’s License is the highest license a pilot can obtain. This is the official qualification you need to apply for a position in an airline and be in command of a commercial airliner. Airlines are looking for pilots who can demonstrate an intelligent approach to air operations and have the necessary knowledge to overcome unexpected challenges, so it is extremely important to build a good theoretical knowledge base during ATPL training.

100 KSA
(ang. Knowledge, Skills, Attitude) aims to extend the key skills of training pilots already during theoretical classes to aviation licenses. These skills focus on the application of existing knowledge, understanding it on the level of many aspects at the same time and the ability to demonstrate both technical and non-technical knowledge and skills. New guidelines in the area of 100 KSA are assessed at the ATO level to ensure that training participants can achieve the appropriate level of competence before the end of the examination session at the Civil Aviation Office.

Who can take part in the training?
Our offer is aimed at PPL (A) license holders who have valid aero-medical examinations. We direct the offer to candidates who will pursue training for the ATPL (A) professional qualifications and at a later stage want to perform commercial flights and apply to airlines. The set of materials we offer consists of an e-learning base containing the knowledge needed to obtain theoretical competences at the Airline Pilot level.
An indispensable element to start the training is a set of books that remain for the pilot’s use also after the theoretical course is completed in the user’s account. We offer study books in a set! The books are for student use on an iOS device.
