Modular CPL training

Through modular training you will progress in your training from one license and rating to another: you start with the Private Pilot License (PPL), add Night Flight rating, then perhaps Instrument and Multi-Engine/instrument ratings. In-between you have gained Pilot In Command (PIC) experience towards your Commercial Pilot License requirements and will graduate with full PPL and ATPL theories.

Modular CPL training gives you the same end result as the Integrated ATP training without being an integrated program as the ATP is. Therefore, there are more flight hours to fly during the training, or you can progress step by step at your own speed.

Modular course fits well to students who e.g. wish to work during their training. Graduation may take considerably more time if you can’t study full time and every day. Modular CPL training may be completed as one continuous course including all necessary modules. Should you already have experience as a pilot, we can tailor you a Professional Pilot Course that will best meet your needs and you only study those modules which you lack.
