Nothing beats real flight practice for the basic training modules. This constitutes an advantage for the transition to larger, more complex aircraft and leads a high amount of practical experience at the end of the course. Our ATPL graduates will have flown more hours on real aircraft than at most other European flight schools.

On top you will enjoy your last training unit before finalizing the license in an Airbus 320 full flight simulator, giving you the realistic cockpit experience you can expect at your first job with an airline.

All this will give an irreplaceable experience at the end of your course, a basis for a successful career in professional aviation.
