BECOME A PILOT
The training program starts with a 1 month theory (100 hours) and theory exams at the CAA. After the theory, the student starts with initial flight training (or training to obtain Private Pilot Licence), which is 45 hours of flight training with instructor.
Once you pass all the theoretical exams and flight exam with a CAA examiner, you continue with ATPL theory (650 hours of theoretical instructions - approx. 7 months) and solo flight experience building (85 hours). When all the exams for ATPL are completed at the CAA and you also complete the solo flight experience building, you move on to Instrument flying.
First is the Instrument flying on single engine airplane (50 hours) and then Instrument flying on multi engine airplane (11 hours). Final stage is the Night Rating (5 hours of night flight training) and Commercial flight training (15 hours of flight training).
When you pass the flight exam for commercial flight training, you are an EASA licenced Commercial pilot with Multi Engine Instrument Rating and ATPL frozen. And with these licence and rating, you are ready to start Type Rating on desired type of airplane (Airbus A320, Boeing 737, etc).
The training takes approximately 18 months and is conducted in English language in an EASA regulated environment, performed on an International Airport (Maribor). This allows us to train the pilots in a controlled airspace, with constant Air Traffic Control communication and gaining important experience for future career as a commercial pilot. During the training you receive 765 hours of theoretical training and 215 hours of flight training. 100 of those hours are PIC (solo) hours.
Using in-house developed and CAA approved online Training Management System software enables the training to be completely paperless. All study materials, operational documents, records and information relevant to the training progress are accessed with iPad, provided to the students at the start of the training.
