Canavia Academy provides training for the EASA Integrated Airline Transport Pilot License for Aeroplanes (ATPL-A) from its bases in Gran Canaria (GCLP) and Tenerife South (GCTS), located in the Canary Islands.

This comprehensive ATPL(A) program guides beginners or those with minimal flying experience through a series of stages including theoretical knowledge instruction, flight training in single and multi-engine piston aircraft, Performance Based Navigation (PBN), Multi-Crew Cooperation (MCC), and Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT), culminating in the award of a 'frozen' ATPL(A) license.

Upon successful completion, graduates receive an EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) Commercial Pilot License (CPL(A)) with ratings for Single Engine (SEP), Multi Engine (MEP), and Instrument (IR). This qualifies them to embark on careers as pilots in commercial passenger or cargo aviation. The EASA license is recognized across all 32 EASA member states and is globally accepted.
