Integrated ATPL(A) Program


Program Description

The Integrated ATPL(A) Program is an Airline Transport Pilot course completed with an MCC in an Airbus A320 or Beechcraft King Air B200, addressed to those who are real serious about getting an airline job. This program is an ab-initio course addressed to all those future pilots that wish to obtain a CPL (Commercial Pilot License) with the ME (Multi-engine) and IR (Instrument) ratings, along with the theoretical knowledge required towards an ATP License. Also within the program, the student will complete the MCC (Multi-crew Coordination) training required to act as an FO (First Officer) in multi-pilot transport category aircraft, essential in order to be employed by an Airline, at our partner facilities. Besides, flight students of the Integrated ATPL Program have exclusive access to a number of options designed to make this course the safest investment, helping you to overcome all the hurdles of aeronautical training while preparing you to be ready for an airline interview in the shortest possible timespan.

  • Intensive support through tutored self-study classes
  • Online learning material
  • Question bank
  • Flight line maximum availability
  • Training in aerobatics

Barcelona Flight School is an authorized centre by the Agencia Estatal de Seguridad Aérea under EASA Part-FCL with the ATO number E-ATO-037 to provide flight training, with over 60 years of experience.

Ground Training

Ground training is composed of 795 hours of ground school, and lasts approximately for 55 weeks including ATP and MCC theory. The course structure is composed of the following syllabus and study break down by subject:

  • Air Law
  • Navigation and Radio-navigation
  • Meteorology
  • Human Performance
  • VFR & IFR Communications (English)
  • Operational Procedures
  • Principles of Flight
  • Performance, Flight Planning and Mass & Balance
  • Aircraft General Knowledge (systems & instrumentation)
  • Local Flight Rules
  • MCC Theory

Once the ground school is completed and the internal mandatory validation tests of each subject are successfully met, the student will be presented to the official EASA examination tests that will credit the trainee towards the theoretical knowledge required to obtain an ATP license.

Flight Training

Students will start to fly approximately after 6 months into the course, and the flight training phase will last until the course ends. Flight training comprises 205 hours of flight instruction and is broken down into 5 phases that go along with the student progression in their education, according the course structure. The future pilot will fly with up to 7 aircraft types, from the most basic 2-seat trainer in the initial training phase, up to an A320 FFS for the MCC phase of the course, each type of single-engine or multi-engine, basic or complex, being the most convenient to help the student successfully cope with each phase of flight as it progresses.

MCC Course

Towards the end of your training, you are entitled to undertake a Multi-Crew Cooperation Course for up to 20 flight hours in the same Airbus A320 Full Motion Simulator used by Vueling crews for their recurrent training, or in a Beechcraft King Air B200 simulator. This will provide the required experience to fly in a multi-crew environment, which is a pre-requisite for any airline interview.


  • Applicants must comply with the following:
  • Being over 18 years old
  • Being able to pass a Class 1 Pilot Medical Exam
  • Hold a bachelor degree or being able to pass qualifying maths, physics and English exams at the ATO
