650 hours (approx. 7 months)
Course special concept that makes the course accessible even for working population:
- 3 weeks self-study followed by 4 days of consultation at the CATC headquarters (this "round" in a total of 7times) - if you do not have time and cannot attend a scheduled consultation, it is possible to complete the tutorial also in a course that takes place in English or To add the substance later, in case of a greater absence, everything is solved individually with the planning department.
- Out of the total amout of 650 hrs you will have 154 hrs of consultations with CATC lecturers, ie. 25 hrs of consultations once a month, divided into 3-4 days within one week
- Consultations are always planned for a weekend plus one or two days around (for example Thursday - Sunday, Friday - Monday, Saturday - Tuesday etc.)
- Schedules will always be sent to you in advance from the planning department, or you will be able to find them in the Fox internal system, which you will be informed about, by the responsible instructor at the opening meeting.
- Classroom instruction, selfstudy based on e-learning materials in iPad
- Lectures are given in Czech or English language
- Textbooks in English only (B2 level) - textbooks are not included in the course price, you can borrow them though for the duration of the course
- Multimedial study materials (longlife updates!) and direct access to online testing portal (aviationexam.com) during the whole course
- After course completion CATC will issue a Successful course completion certificate – this enables candidates to take the ATPL exams conducted by the CAA
- Lectured subjects: Air Law, Airframe, Systems, Engines and Electrics, Instrumentation, Mass and Ballance, Performance, Flight Planning and Monitoring, Human Performance and Limitations, Meteorology, General Navigation, Radio Navigation, Operational Procedures, Principles of Flight, VFR Communication, IFR Communication.
- As the course takes place all year round and students are going every two months (each is in another stage of study - someone starts, another ends the course), each student starts with other subjects in the given month, so it is not possible to fully follow the sequence. However, in about 7 months, if the student is on a regular basis and has no absences, all the subjects are taught. In case of absence, it is possible to add missing courses in the course in English.
- You do not have to wait 7 months to complete several courses. During the course of study, CATC will issue a partial certificate on successful completion of several subjects on request. Therefore, you can start the ATPL theory test gradually at the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
- Access to the Aviation Exam Testing Portal for the duration of the study (included in the price). Available on the opening day.
- Textbooks are in English - WARNING! They are not included in the course price. We recommend language skills at least at B2 level
- Multimedia study materials that will have a lifetime update (not included in the price)
- The possibility of borrowing free paper books if you do not want to invest in electronic versions of textbooks
