COMMERCIAL PILOT: AIRLINE TRANSPORT PILOT LICENSE (ATPL)

Do you want to become a pilot? Executive Flight Academy offers the most competitive pilot training in the Netherlands to become a commercial pilot. (Completely EASA approved of course.) We simply do this in the Benelux so that you no longer have to travel to faraway places for fair and low prices with enormous visa procedures, high extra costs for travel and accommodation and very hefty conversion costs of 25,000. – Euro to convert the ICAO or FAA pilot’s license to a European EASA license afterwards. So nice and familiar and close by so you don’t have to wait in ‘Verweggistan’ to see if you get a proper education.

We have really done everything we can to keep the costs of flying lessons for the ATPL pilot training as low as possible.

Our flight school gives all lessons in English or in Dutch so that foreigners and expats can also participate.

You leave the flight school with a so-called “frozen ATPL” license. That is a Commercial Pilot License with a Multi-Engine Piston and an Instrument Rating, a Multi-Crew-Coordination course and the ATPL theory certificate. This allows you to apply anywhere as a First-Officer (FO). Later, once you work for an airline, you will receive your full ATPL pilot’s license based on a number of experience criteria and after undergoing a skill test. Also, view our separate modular ATPL theory training.

Training overview EASA-ATPL

You start immediately with the practical flying lessons during the theory training. We believe this increases motivation and the conceptualisation of our PPL and ATPL students. During the frozen ATPL flight training you go through the following stages:

  • Meeting
  • Intake
  • Assessment (Optional, not included)
  • Private Pilot Licence (PPL) 45 hours
  • Pilot In Command (PIC) “hour building” 90 hours + ATPL theory 65 contact hours (Distance Learning) or 650 hours (Class) + Night Qualification (NQ) 5 hours
  • Single Engine Instrument Rating (IR) 50 hours. 35 in the simulator and 15 in flight
  • Commercial Pilot License (CPL) 15 hours
  • Multi Engine Piston rating VFR and IFR (MEP) 11 hours
  • Multi Crew Coordination Course (MCC) 20 hours
  • UPRT Upset Recovery Training

Your efforts per course result in a separate pilot license or rating.

The theoretical training for the commercial pilot license at Executive Flight Academy is a unique combination of distance learning and classroom instruction with individual Homework Support (HWS) and so-called “brush-up courses” where we combine the “best of both worlds”.

EFA uses the online digital classroom of Scandinavian Airline Academy (SAA) so you can do an enormous amount of work in your own time at home while a team of specialist Ground Instructors can answer any question within 48 hours. We can thus reduce the number of classroom teaching hours from 650 to 65. Calculate the profit in money, time, travel and accommodation! Click here for more info about our unique ATPL theory course.
