Integrated Programme – f(ATPL) Licence
Atlantic Flight Training offer a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Frozen Air Transport Pilots Licence (ATPL) to those students wishing to complete flight training in the most time effective way.
What is a Frozen ATPL Licence?
A Frozen ATPL Licence – f(ATPL) – is the qualification of a pilot who has passed all 14 Theoretical Knowledge Examinations, has a Commercial Pilots Licence (CPL), Multi Engine Piston Rating (MEP), Multi Engine Instrument Rating (ME IR) and has completed a Multi Crew Cooperation (MCC) course. The ATPL licence is "frozen" until the pilot has completed a minimum 1500 hours of flying time.
Our Integrated Programme is designed for students with little or no flying experience who wish to train to become a Commercial Airline Pilot in the most expeditious and efficient manner, whilst completing a globally recognised training syllabus.
This is a 70 week programme beginning with 32 weeks of Ground School, during which time the Cadet completes the Theoretical Knowledge section of the course comprising of 14 JAA subjects and examinations. This is followed by 20 weeks of Visual Flight Rule (VFR) training and then 18 weeks of Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) training. The Cadet then completes the programme with a Multi Crew Co-operation course (MCC).
The ATPL Theoretical Knowledge Ground School is divided in to 3 phases:
|Phase 1||Phase 2||Phase 3|
|Air Law||Flight Planning||Instrumentation|
|Systems||Human Resources & Limitations||Mass & Balance|
|Principles of Flight||Meteorology||Aeroplane Performance|
|Electronics||General Navigation||Radio Navigation|
|Ground School Total Hours:||755 Hours|
After successfully completing the ATPL Theoretical training and passing all 14 exams, Cadets begin their fair weather flying using our modern, all glass cockpit, single engine DA40 aircraft. Flying consists of single engine, multi engine and simulator flying along with a series of progress tests throughout the duration of the training.
Students then complete their Instrument Flight Rule (poor weather) training in our DA42 aircraft. The last stage of the training prepares the Cadet for an airline environment with the introduction of the Multi Crew Cooperation (MCC) course.
Our high Instructor to Cadet ratio ensures that students get the "one on one" time that they deserve. This is a priority for the Academy and develops the Cadets individual soft skills, which are essential in ensuring future success on Airline Selection .
