Integrated Airline Transport Pilot (ATP)

Cadets studying the Integrated Airline Transport Pilot program will receive Commercial Pilot License (CPL) with multi-engine piston and instrument ratings (MEP/IR) after their graduation. Cadets will study ATPL theories and will pass Multi-Crew Cooperation (MCC) and Dangerous Goods training. Upset Prevention and Recovery Training is also included.

Graduates with Frozen ATPL license will be able to apply for Co-pilot positions within EASA and other regions. Outside EASA area some local Conversions may be required.
