Integrated training ATP(A)

In providing this training we cooperate with the Department of Air Transport of the Faculty of Transportation Sciences of the Czech Technical University in Prague, where the theoretical teaching takes place throughout a three-year bachelor´s degree. Upon its completion, the candidate can enrol for ATPL(A) theoretical exams in the Civil Aviation Authority. The practical part of the training is done in our Air School at the airport in Hradec Králové. As a graduate of the integrated training program you will be a holder of a commercial pilot licence with IR instrument flight rating, MEP LAND multi-engine piston airplane rating and have completed an MCC multi-crew cooperation course. Upon completion of this training, the graduate will receive a university bachelor´s degree.

Entrance requirements:

  1. At least 17 years of age
  2. Completed secondary education
  3. Class 1 medical certificate
  4. Successfully completed admissions for the Professional pilot branch of study at the Faculty of Transportation Sciences of the Czech Technical University in Prague

 

Light aircraft pilot LAPL(A)

This pilot licence is ideal for those who are interested more in flying in their free time or for fun. A holder of an LAPL(A) pilot licence is privileged to act as the Pilot in Command (PIC) of a single-engine piston airplane or a tourist motor glider (TMG) with a maximum certified take-off mass of 2 000 kg. One limitation of this licence is that the holder shall only carry a maximum of three passengers after he has completed, after being issued the licence, 10 hours of flight time as Pilot in Command on airplanes or TGMs.

Entrance requirements:
          1. Must be at least 16 years of age at the beginning of the course, 17 for obtaining of the pilot licence
          2. LAPL medical certificate


Private pilot PPL(A)

The private pilot licence is the first step towards the cockpit of an airliner. It is the first module in this modular training program in which a candidate may obtain all necessary ratings gradually. A holder is privileged to act as the Pilot in Command (PIC) or the Co-pilot (CPLT) of an airplane or a tourist motor glider, but only for non-commercial purposes. The Private pilot is, therefore, privileged to transport passengers, goods etc; however, pilot is not allowed to carry it for consideration.

Entrance requirements:

            1. Must be at least 16 years of age at the beginning of the course, 17 for obtaining of the pilot licence
            2. Class 2 medical certificate      


Rating for night flights NIGHT(A)

A holder of this licence can carry out flights at night in VFR conditions. The training to obtain this licence puts emphasis on handling the specific conditions which a pilot may encounter while night flying. The rating is a necessary condition for obtaining the Instrument rating Entrance requirements:

          1. Private pilot licence PPL(A)  
          2. Class 2 medical certificate


Instrument rating IR(A)

Instrument rating entitles a holder to fly in IFR conditions (instrument flight rule conditions) to a height of 60 m (200 ft.). This rating enables the pilot to take off from the departure airport without a visual ground reference (e.g. in or over the clouds) and to continue to the destination airport on the condition that visual ground reference is obtained at least at 60 metres above the ground.

Entrance requirements:
          1. Private pilot licence PPL(A) or Commercial pilot licence CPL(A)
          2. Rating for night flights NIGHT(A)
          3. Class 1 or 2 medical certificate supplemented with medical check-up using the tone audiometry   
          4. At least 50 hours of navigational flight as the Pilot in Command (PIC) of an aircraft


Commercial pilot CPL(A)

The commercial pilot licence entitles the holder not only to act as the Pilot in Command (PIC) or the Co-pilot (CPLT) of any aircraft apart from commercial air transport, but also as the Pilot in Command of a single-pilot aircraft in commercial air transport or as the Co-pilot in commercial air transport (Certain conditions apply in both cases). This is usually the second to last part of the modular training program, in which a candidate for an airline transport pilot career gains their necessary ratings gradually. This training is followed by its last module - training in multi-engine piston airplanes.

Entrance requirements:
          1. At least 18 years of age when obtaining the pilot licence
          2. Class 1 medical certificate
          3. Any candidate has to be a holder of a Private pilot licence PPL(A)   
          4. A total flight time of at least 150 hours


Rating for multi-engine piston airplanes MEP LAND

This rating expands a pilot licence to qualify its holder to be a Pilot in Command of a multi-engine piston airplane. This license will give the pilot the abilities required to fly a multi-engine piston airplane and deal with extraordinary and emergency situations involving drive unit failure and its impact on piloting and the behaviour of the aircraft.

Entrance requirements:
          1. Private pilot licence PPL(A)
          2. At least 70 flight hours as the Pilot in Command in airplanes   
          3. Class 2 medical certificate


En-route instrument rating EIR

This rating is a more brief version of instrument rating training. It enables a holder to depart from the given airport under VFR rules (visual flight rules), then to switch to IFR flight (flight without necessary visual contact with the ground and surroundings) before switching back to the previously mentioned VFR rules near the destination airport before landing. An advantage of this rating is that the pilot need not avoid cloud cover in-flight, giving them more air space. This simplifies the planning of longer flights.

Entrance requirements:
          1. Private pilot licence PPL(A)
          2. 2. At least 20 flight hours of navigational flight as the Pilot in Command (PIC) of an airplane   
          3. Class 2 medical certificate


Flight instructor FI(A)

A flight instructor rating FI(A) graduate is privileged to provide the training for a student wishing to obtain a PPL(A) license. The main contents of their job is to guide their student through their training, carry out pre-flight briefings with them, train them inside the aircraft, debrief them and to provide them with a theoretical knowledge. A candidate for such a course has to have the abilities and knowledge at a high level. In this course, the student is provided with training, in combination with further self-improvement to prepare for teaching, passing on their own skills, knowledge and experiences to their students, to assess them and evaluate their progress. After obtaining this rating, the teacher can go on to train for other flight courses such as NIGHT(A), CPL(A), IR(A), MEP LAND etc.

Entrance requirements:
          1. At least 18 years of age when obtaining the ratings
          2. At least ten hours of instrument flight training in the appropriate category of aircraft. At the most, five hours of this can be dedicated to land
               instrument time on a Flight simulator training device (FSTD)
          3. At least 20 hours of navigation flight under VFR rules in the appropriate category of aircraft as thePilot in Command, including at least one individual
              navigation flight under VFR rules as the Pilot in Command at a length of at least 540 km (300 NM), with a full stop landing at two different airports
          4. Commercial pilot licence CPL(A) or Private pilot licence PPL(A). If a candidate is a holder of only a Private pilot licence PPL(A):
                    a) pilot has to be a holder of a certificate of passing the theoretical CPL(A) or ATPL(A) exam
                    b) pilot must have completed at least 200 hours in airplanes or TMG, wherein for 150 hours of the course, acts as the Pilot in Command 
          5. At least 30 hours in a single-engine piston aircraft, at least five hours of which must be in the six months prior to entry into the flight test


Instrument rating instructor IRI(A)

This rating gives the holder the right to provide training in order to issue revalidate or renew Class or Type ratings for the relevant category of aircraft. Instrument rating instructor is not to provide any other types of training unless pilot has the appropriate rating.

Entrance requirements:
          1. A candidate does not have to have the FI(A) rating 
           2. At least 800 hours of flight under IFR rules, at least 400 hours of which have to be in airplanes


Class rating instructor CRI(SPA)

This training course is intended for pilots who are not holders of the FI rating but still want to provide training in order to issue, revalidate or renew Class or Type ratings for single-pilot non-complex, non-high-performance airplanes, or want to train pilots in order to obtain rating for towing or for aerobatic flights with the given category of an airplane.

Entrance requirements:
          1. A candidate has to be a holder of the appropriate rating
          2. At least 500 hours as the Pilot in Command in multi-engine airplanes and 30 hours as the Pilot in Command in the aircraft of the relevant class or type
