IR, MEP, ATPL Theory

Module training programs include different training modules for certain licenses and qualifications. The students of the module program start with PPL and, upon obtaining the necessary flight experience, may continue with IR(A), CPL(A) modules or ME (multi-engine aircraft) flight program.

‘Aviation studies require a lot of effort but it becomes easier when you understand that all this knowledge will be implemented in the practice during flights. I think every student who is passionate about aviation will successfully pass the exams,’ encouragingly said John Joseph Kasimba Omolo, a Private Pilot License student from Kenya.

Modular Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL(A)) Theory Training

Theory Training

The theoretical knowledge course consists of thirteen (13) theoretical subjects, that takes approximately 620 hours. It includes classroom and individual study, professional manuals and CD-based progress tests.

Duration

The duration of the course depends on the intensity of the training process. The schedule is determined considering the 19 self-study hours per week that need to be completed by every student. The total length of the course is approximately 8 months. The maximum length of the course is up to 18 months.

The training course consists of two training modules

Module1:

  • General navigation
  • Instrumentation
  • Flight planning
  • Meteorology
  • Human performance & limitations
  • Communications
  • Mass & balance

Module2:

  • Radio navigation
  • Aircraft general knowledge
  • Aviation law
  • Operational procedures
  • Principles of flight
  • Performance

Course design

Theory training

  • 94 hours – lectures and progress tests
  • 530 hours – self-study Duration
  • 8 months (approximately)
