Aeros Flight Training has been in existence for some eight years and has grown from a single site to five sites making it now the largest Modular Training facility within the UK.
Our speciality is the training of pilots with no flying experience to become Fastrack airline ready pilots by means of continuous Modular training. If this course is commenced on a full time basis it is possible to complete in under 12 months however the majority of students will take between 12 – 18 months to graduate. This will provide the cadet with a ‘frozen’ European Aviation and Safety Agency (EASA) Airline Transport Pilot Licence (fATPL). The Licence will remain ‘frozen’ until 1,500hrs of Total time and 500hrs of Multi Crew time have been achieved. Aeros is fully approved to provide such training under our Approval No. ATO 0105.
100% of Aeros Fastrack graduates have been placed with major airlines across Europe over the past two years.
The cost of this course is £65,445.00
This price is based on the student completing each module in the course hours and includes CAA test fees and licence issue for each module, all landing/approach fees and VAT. There are no hidden fees.
Follow the modules below for a full breakdown.
Module 1 – Assessment
We believe that it is essential to provide potential pilots with an assessment profile and so we use the world renowned European Pilot Selection and Training (EPST) COMPASS selection system. This will provide you with a very realistic assessment of your ability to complete the course.
Module 2 – EASA PPL
Those pilots that achieve a recognised standard in the pilot assessment profile will be offered 45hrs of Private Pilot Licence (PPL) training. With this licence you can fly non fare paying passengers/friends anywhere in Europe.
Module 3 – Night Rating
After completing the PPL the student will complete a 5hrs Night Rating entitling them to fly with passengers at night.
Module 4 – Structured Hours Building
After achieving a PPL the cadet will embark upon a course of 110hrs Structured Hours Building (SHB) which will provide new challenges and further develop their skills in solo flying. You may take passengers on these flights. During this time the cadet will also be introduced to the concept of Multi Pilot Licence (MPL) flying which is an essential aspect of airline crew flying. This part of the course will generally be conducted in one of our economic two seat aircraft.
Module 5 – Ground School/ Theoretical Knowledge (TK)
As the cadet increases flying hours towards the target of 185hrs they will commence studying towards the 14 written EASA Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) exam papers. We can recommend a quality Theoretical Knowledge (TK) provider.
Module 6 – IMC Rating (IRR)
During the course of the SHB – typically at around 70hrsTT – the student will complete the Instrument Meteorological Conditions Rating (IMC) (IRR). This consists of 15hrs of Instrument Flying culminating in Instrument Approaches. As a result of the student completing this course they will be issued with a Basic Instrument Flight Module Certificate (BIFM) which can be used to reduce the CPL training course by 10hrs.
Module 7 – Aerobatics and Upset Prevention & Recovery Training course
By April 2018 EASA will insist that all CPL trained pilots will have received adequate training in UPRT. Our Aerobatics & UPRT course covers this requirement.
Module 8 – Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) Skill Test.
As a result of achieving a BIFM Certificate and upon successful completion of the ATPL examinations the Cadet will undergo 15hrs of flight training leading to the Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) Skill Test flown with a CAA Examiner. This is flown exclusively on the complex single engined Piper Arrow aircraft.
Module 9 – Multi Engine Piston (MEP)
Successful completion of the CPL will lead immediately to training for the Multi Engine Piston (MEP) Class Rating. This is a six hour course and can be flown on either the Tecnam P2006T or Diamond DA42 multi engine aircraft.
Module 10 – Instrument Rating (IR)
This is the final part of your basic training which also results in a Skill Test. Training for the 55hr Instrument Rating (IR) is reduced to 45hrs as the result of having a CPL issued. This course is commenced in the ‘Sim’ which is a Flight Navigation Procedures Trainer 11 (FNPT11) and is composed of 25hrs instruction in all of the techniques required for precision flying on Instruments. Upon successful completion of the course in the ‘sim’ the cadet will demonstrate this new knowledge in the Tecnam P2006T or Diamond DA42 aircraft and complete the remaining 20hrs of instrument flight (22hrs flying) before taking the IR Skill Test with a CAA examiner.
Module 11 – Multi Crew Co-operation (MCC) & Jet Orientation Course (JOC)
The final module is the Multi Crew Co-operation (MCC) & Jet Orientation Course (JOC) which consists of three days of Ground School followed by seven days (20hrs) in a Boeing 737 800 series Jet FNPT-II ‘sim’. During this course you will learn the techniques and importance of working together as a two pilot team in a modern jet simulator.
All of the above training is compliant with the UK CAA under the European Aviation & Safety Agency (EASA) and will provide the Cadet with a ‘frozen’ ATPL. This is the essential Airline entry qualification for consideration as a First Officer.
