Modular CPL / ATPL Professional Pilot Course

Become a professional pilot at your own pace.

Modular training allows you to complete the different parts of the program at your own pace and within your time availability. You decide how many hours a day you want to dedicate to the training. This makes the plan easy to combine with work or other occupations.

Our EASA ATPL Modular programme is suitable for anyone who wants to become a professional pilot from begin, or from Private Pilot Level. Due to its modular structure, the programme is ideal for those who cannot study full-time and are looking for an option that can be combined with their main activity. It is certainly the best option for aeronautical maintenance technicians, flight attendants, aeronautical engineers.

No previous flying experience or aeronautical knowledge is required to access the training, it is Ab Initio (from zero).

Keep in mind.

The Modular course can also be followed by those with a Private Pilot license, skipping the first module. This then gives the possibility to continue with subsequent modules, should candidates decide to do so.

The training is divided into modules, with a combination of ground training and flight training. Each module is complementary and the combination of these modules will provide you with all the licenses and classifications needed to get a job as a professional pilot.

Theory can be studied in distance learning. We offer everyone to participate as observers when they want, during the lessons we hold in the classroom.
