Theoretical program

State of the art technology and procedures focussed on airlines are used during these courses, making us the European benchmark in aeronautical training.

The theoretical part includes 7 hours theory required for obtaining the ME rating. Also, briefings are imparted, which provide a more in-depth theory of the practical aspects of the ME IR training before and after each flight and session in the simulator.


Flight program

During the flight programme we will extensively cover all the manoeuvres and procedures as specified in the regulations.

The practical portion will begin by carrying out a series of Single Engine flight hours followed by the multi-engine flight phase. The programme includes the 2 hours that are required in a DA42 for the ME + IR flight check.

Students in possession of an EASA CPL (A) or an EASA CPL-IR (H) license are authorised to cut 10 hours from the flight programme that is specified herein in the Cessna 172 NAV III.

Simulator program

Before the flight programme, the student will have the opportunity to train in a simulator (after having received the required theoretical training prior to each session).

The programme includes 10 hours in the G1000 trainer to help with the transition to Glass Cockpit technology. Then, 25 hours of training will be completed in the FNPT-I simulator.
