Flying Time Aviation offer one of the most competitive and comprehensive course packages in the industry for Zero experience to frozen Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL).

Airline Pilot salaries start from £25,000 p/a for a First Officer. and can rise up to £130,000 p/a for a captain’s position at British Airways. This does take some time and you need to start by investing in a pilot training course.

The minimum qualification that a European airline would require from a prospective First Officer is a JAA Commercial Pilot Licence with a JAA Frozen ATPL. To achieve this various modules need to be completed. The European Licence can normally easily be converted to that of another country if required.

The ATPL would become un-frozen when the flight experience requirements are met. The experience would normally be achieved during employment as a first officer.

The modules are:

  • Private Pilot Licence
  • Night Qualification
  • Airline Transport Pilot Licence Theory
  • Hour Building
  • Multi-Engine Commercial Pilot Licence
  • Multi-Engine Instrument Rating
  • Multi-Crew Cooperation Course

The duration of the whole course from zero experience is between 18 and 24 months.

The price is based on completing the course in minimum hours and does not include CAA and Test fees.

Our zero to fATPL course has been designed to deliver the training required, in the most efficient and practical manner. This is achieved by using the most appropriate aircraft and simulators for the different stages in the course.

Our modern aircraft fleet is powered by Thielert engines which operate with FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control) that ensures maximum fuel efficiency. The engines consume the more economical Jet fuel instead of the traditional and expensive AVGAS that is normally used on training aircraft. The cheaper Jet fuel, coupled with the high efficiency of the FADEC system, ensures lower operating costs. This enables us to provide our courses at very competitive rates.
