A Frozen ATPL License is when a candidate currently has a Commercial Pilots Licence with an Instrument Rating and has completed their exams towards their Airline Transport Pilots Licence.
Progress with little or no previous flying experience from Private Pilot’s License to a Commercial Pilot’s Licence (CPL) level with ‘frozen ATPL’ and Multi-Engine (ME) Instrument rating (IR) in approximately 15 months.
Lanseria Flight Centre offers comprehensive training required to obtain the Private Pilot’s Licence, Commercial Pilot’s Licence and Airline Transport Pilot’s Licence.
A night rating allows you to act as pilot in command of an aircraft after sunset until sunrise giving you more flexibility to adapt your time schedules after dark or early morning.
An instructor’s rating will give you the edge over a pilot who does not have the rating, providing you with one more avenue that you can use to gain hours and experience. It also adds experience and value to your CV and career in aviation.
