A unique package offered by the school designed to help aspirants obtain a Commercial Pilot License with Multi-Engine and Instrument Rating, the basic and complete license needed by a student to jumpstart his/her professional airline pilot career. The package includes all the necessary documentation the student would need within the duration of the course.

Private Pilot License Course (PPL)


A PPL is the first license that must be obtained by the aspiring student to advance to his/her next pilot career. The PPL Course is comprised of approximately 120hours of classroom studies, 5 hours of flight simulator and 40-45 hours of Single-Engine Flight Training. A PPL allows one to fly non-commercial flights such as flights with family or friends.

Commercial Pilot License Course (CPL)


CPL is the most important license requirement for pilots imposed by the airlines or private flight operators on cargo or passenger flights. The CPL course is comprised of approximately 120-140 hours of classroom studies, and a minimum 110 hours of flight training on top of the 45hours gained during PPL Training. CPL holders are allowed to work in an airline or private company thereby gaining additional trainings on larger and more complex aircraft such as Boeings and Airbuses.

Multi-Engine Rating Course (ME)


Like the IR, is not a license. This is also a type of qualification that is stamped/placed on the license of a CPL holder. During the PPL to CPL stage, students are usually taught to fly single engine aircrafts, but on the ME training, students are taught to fly aircrafts with two engines. This is a very important training since almost 100% of airlines use two or more engine aircrafts.

Flight Instructor’s Course (FI)


Open for PPL or CPL holder who would like to impart their knowledge and skills to aspiring pilots. This course would take approximately 6-8 months to complete. An FI license holder can work as an FI to any school for pilots thereby allowing him to build-up flying hours and experience, and giving him/her an edge when applying in an airline.
