Frozen Airline Transport Pilot’s Licence (ATPL)

Modular EASA frozen ATPL training programme


Our programme has any distinct advantages to both sponsors and self-sponsored.

  • A rigorous pre-selection will be in place to ensure that prospective pilots are suited for a professional pilot career.
  • Detailed training records and reports will be available to sponsors and prospective employers, this has become the norm in Europe where carriers request candidates training record from their training providers.
  • Financial protection to both sponsors and the self-sponsored is inherent in the programme by ensuring that each module is self-contained as individual package and that progression to further modules cannot be done unless the candidate has successfully completed the preceding module.
  • Where an individual is found not to be making the required standard, additional training will be made available with the consent of the Head of Training and the sponsor/client to the amount of extra training required, on the proviso that the candidate has applied him/herself well during the training and a few hours of additional training will bring the candidate up to the required standard.
  • On completion of each module a course report will be generated and made available to the candidate and their sponsors. These will form part of the candidate’s portfolio to supplement their CV’s and job applications. Our UK training partners can assist candidates with CV presentation and airline interview coaching.
