Theoretical preparation lays the foundation for practical flight training.
During the Zero to CPL course, the trainee will complete theoretical courses for PPL(A), IR(A), CPL(A) and MEL (A).
You will complete the majority of your theoretical training online from the comfort of your home prior to starting the practical part of your training utilizing our effective tools such as state-of-the-art studio, virtual classroom will all classwork, e-learning with all study materials and even access to testing database. This will ensure your smooth transition to the practical part of the training, as you will already possess necessary knowledge.
The flight training will start with the PPL(A), continue with IR(A) and with the CPL SEL and MEL add on. During this stage, you shall also go through dedicated Long Briefings with an instructor focusing on practical aspects of the training.
190 hours total time:
- 100 hours as pilot-in-command;
- 20 hours of VFR cross-country flight time as pilot-in-command, including a cross-country flight totaling at least 350 NM in the course of with full-stop landings at two aerodromes different from the aerodromes of departure;
- 35 hours of instrument training;
- 10 hours on a complex multi-engine airplane.

The final aeronautical knowledge and practical test is the skill test. It is taken at the end of the training of PPL, IR, CPL and ME and consists of an oral and practical part.
The length of the skill test varies depending on the FAA examiner.
Towards the end of the course of PPL(A), IR(A) and CPL(A) you will have to demonstrate a sufficient level of theoretical knowledge at an FAA approved testing center in the form of a written test. To pass the written examinations you need to achieve a score of at least 70%. This test must be done before the practical Skill Test.
