The Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) is the Airline Pilot licence, which allows you to work in the field of aviation and make commercial flights. Therefore, it is the main requirement to be employed by airlines performing domestic and international flights as foreseen by the European regulation.
The ATPL modular course allows you to become an airline pilot starting from a private pilot licence (PPL). It can be completed in 8-9 months. However, due to its modular structure, you can decide how long it will take you depending on your needs.
The modules to complete the training and do the licence exam are 2, as far as you have already achieved a PPL (100 hours of theory and 45 flight hours), the Night Rating, and the (100) hour building required to achieve the CPL/IR.
The first module foresees 650 hours of ATPL theory, which can be made also in distance learning (with only 105h in presence) or fully in presence. The second phase is required to access the CPL licence and the other courses necessary to achieve your ATPL (MEP, IR, English language).
At this point, you only need to get your A-UPRT and the MCC (Multi-Crew Coordination), which are not included in this training path, although it is necessary to apply to airline selections. This courses can be attended in a third phase after having achieved your ATPL modular, or CPL/IR with ATPL theory (frozen). The ATPL modular course is made for those who want to start an airline pilot career, but do not have enough time to attend an intensive course (ATPL Integrated). It is therefore perfect for who is still studying or is already working and can only dedicate a few hours a week to their training.
