ATPL programme is a competency-based programme conducted by professional airline pilots with long time experience. It exists in both integrated and modular version that include: 

  • Entry Screening
  • Theoretical part: ATPL theory, Aviation English; Instrument Flight Rules etc.
  • Basic glider training
  • Practical training on single & twin engine piston airplane and flight simulator (including upset recovery training on simulator and acrobatic aircraft)
  • Integrated personal development, leadership, communication, decision making and workload management training

Type rating training is not a part of the programme. 


The integrated version of the ATPL course is based on principle that all parts of this programme are continuously following one after the other to build step by step the overall knowledge and skills of the student. This enables to make the whole course as short and cheap as possible, on condition that the programme has to be completed within 36 months from its beginning.

Basic price of the integrated ATPL programme is 49 k€.

The modular ATPL programme is designed as a building set of relatively closed sub-parts (modules) of the whole course. The modular philosophy enables to adjust the training programme exactly to the specific needs of the individual customer.  The total duration of the entire programme is not limited.
