Airways Aviation’s EASA modular training options offer students a flexible, part-time ATPL alternative to our full time, integrated course. You can undertake each stand-alone course (or module) at a time that suits you, building your skills and qualifications as you go.
STAGE 1 - Private Pilot Licence (PPL) + Structured Hours Building + Night Qualification
A PPL is a licence to fly an aircraft for private use. You will complete a minimum of 45 hours flying, in addition you will need to complete a Structured Hours Building of 150 flying hours (70 hours as pilot in command) before you can commence a CPL. A Night Qualification is an advanced flight training rating for pilots to fly at night. This module comprises 4 hours of dual flight time and 1 hour of solo flight time.
STAGE 2 - ATPL Theory
ATPL theory takes place over 26 weeks and is divided into two phases. Students will undertake a range of subjects including general aircraft knowledge, air law and IFR communications through to aeroplane performance and operational procedures.
STAGE 3 - Multi-Engine Piston Class Rating + Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) + Multi-Engine Instrument Rating
SPAIN OR UNITED KINGDOM
The Multi-Engine Piston Class Rating (MEP) gives you the skills and experience to fly as pilot in command of a twin-engine aircraft. You will complete 6 hours of flight training and 7 hours of theory over 3 days.
An EASA CPL is the minimum licence required to fly commercially. You will complete at least 25 hours of dual flight training. Total training hours will depend on your previous flying experience.
The Multi-Engine Instrument Rating (MEIR) is designed to give you the skills and experience you need to make approaches in poor weather and fly in Class A airspace. Flight training time varies between 45 and 55 hours depending on previous experience.
STAGE 4 - Multi-Pilot Foundation Jet Course
In the Multi-Pilot Foundation Jet Course (MPFJC) you will undertake 48 hours of intensive training over 20 days including advanced theory instruction and A320/ Boeing 737 simulator flying time.
Upon completion of all of the above modules you will have earned your EASA fATPL. Pilots with an fATPL are eligible to work as a First Officer in the commercial airline industry. You will need to accrue 1500 flying hours to achieve a full ATPL at which time you will be eligible to fly as a Captain.
