All kinds of questions you can have about MPL training. In case you miss some, please write us: email@example.com
- What is the MPL training price?
Course price for 2016 is set to 79 000 EUR regardless of the airline and aircraft type.
- Does CATC provide successful MPL screening applicants with a bank loan contract?
Actually not. For training funding through the bank loan, please contact the appropriate bank insitutes.
- After MPL Training completion, is there any employment guarantee?
Successful MPL applicants have their initial operation experience, so called line training, consisting of 100 – 200 hours (dependent on lines characteristics), guaranteed. Steps after finished line training are a matter of agreement between the pilot and the airline.
- Why should I decide for an MPL, instead of a traditional CPL/IR way?
There are several advantages of an MPL instead of a CPL way – briefly said: greater training relevance, quality and safety. MPL is designed to measure the trainee´s competencies, not only hours spent in the aircraft. It contains more interpersonal skills training lessons, more instructional hours which help you improve your competencies through the instructors´ advice. The MPL is the first training in the history, where the students are continuously being assessed so that they can improve their competencies. It makes you ready for a multi-crew environment and a real airline life. Last but not least, the initial operation experience – line training consisting of 500 hours is guaranteed. Nowhere else may this advantage be found!
- Is it possible to work or study at the University simultaneously with the MPL Training ongoing?
We do not recommend to combine studying or working at the same time. It might be possible though during the first phase of a training – theoretical knowledge instruction, which is constructed of several classroom sessions and self-study. However, during practical training, nothing but flying will be possible. As far as the time is concerned, the MPL training is extremely demanding.
- What is the MPL Training time-scale?
According to the regulations, the total training time is 240 hours, which covers approximately 18 - 20 months. Have a look at the detailed MPL course description.
- In the MPL course, may I have any hours credited in case I have a PPL licence (or CPL etc.)?
Unfortunately no, the MPL Training is an „ab-initio“ training, which means that the students begin from zero, independently on their previous experience.
- May I study the MPL Course in Czech language?
Actually, it depends on how many Czech and foreign students are signed up. In case there is one foreign student with limited or no knowledge of Czech language, the courses are held in English. You should be at least level B2 in English in order to be able to follow the courses and lectures. Please check the Common European framework of Reference for Languages.
- Is it possible to apply for the MPL screening prior to finishing high school studies?
Unfortunately no, one of the entry requirements for the MPL Screening is that the applicant must be a holder of at least the high school diploma. Furthermore, the recommended age for MPL applicants is 21 - 35 years of age. Please check also the qualification criteria.
- What are the language requirements, necessary to pass the screening?
Successful completion of B2-level-test and gain of at least 60% of the total points. Successful candidates then proceed to oral part. Please check the Common European framework of Reference for Languages.
- Is MPL Training a full-time programme or a distance one?
MPL Training is a full-time programme, quite demanding and time-consuming. We strongly recommend not to study university or have a full-time job at the same time.
- What is the connection between MPL and airlines?
The MPL, in its principle, is fully dependent on airline´s interest in new MPL pilots. MPL training cannot be commenced without an airline need for new pilots. It is constructed as a mutual endeavor between an airline and an approved training organization.
