Today, more than ever, the airline industry needs highly trained and skilled professionals for the growing industry to safely fly over 5 bn. passengers annually to their destinations.

Being a Commercial Pilot comes also with a lot of responsibility, complex decision making and the ability to understand and cope with abnormal situations.

This program is designed for students with little to no flying experience and that want to pursue a career in aviation according to EASA regulations.

Flying Academy is highly specialized in offering training from ab-initio to “frozen” ATPL(A). The trainees of the program will start with PPL(A) and, upon obtaining the necessary flight experience, will continue with IR(A), CPL(A) modules or MEP (multi-engine aircraft) flight programs.

After successful completion of the zero to ATPL(A) course, you will be issued an EASA CPL(A) license with ATPL(A) theory completed and will be authorized to act as Pilot-In-Command (PIC) of an aircraft in an airline. The ATPL(A) license is the highest level of aircraft pilot certification.

Course entry requirements

  • Minimum age of 18 years (16 years to enroll PPL training program)
  • First class medical certificate (Second class medical certificate untill finishing MEP)
  • No previous flight experience needed
  • Sufficient level of knowledge of Mathematics and Physics
  • English language knowledge – FTO oral and written test 


The privileges of the holder of an ATPL(A) are to act as pilot-in-command (Captain) or co-pilot (First Officer) in airplanes engaged in commercial air transportation exercise all the privileges of the holder of a PPL(A), a CPL(A) and IR(A).
