Commercial Pilot License (CPL)
The minimum qualification that an airline would require from a prospective First Officer is an International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO/EASA/FAA) Commercial Pilot License with a ‘Frozen’ ATPL. Our FTO license complies with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO/EASA/FAA) requirements. Which can normally be exercised globally and can easily be converted to the equivalent of another country.
A ‘Frozen’ Airline Transport Pilot License is the term given to the qualification of a pilot who holds a Commercial Pilot License (CPL), Multi Engine Piston Rating (MEP), Multi Engine Instrument Rating (ME IR) and passes in all 14 Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) theoretical exams.
Our flagship course takes students with little or no previous flying experience to a ‘frozen ATPL’ in approximately 16 months, from where they are then eligible to work as First Officer with an airline once the specific aircraft type training has been completed. The course includes a Commercial Pilots License with Multi Engine Rating and Instrument Rating. The license is endorsed with Frozen ATPL status as the student has completed an Integrated Frozen ATPL course. You will fly 190 hours, with the majority being in a single engine aircraft.
