Modular course description

1. MEP (Multi-engine piston) class rating [ 6 hours ]

You'll fly 6 hours in the Piper Aztec and get your multi-engine class rating.

This aircraft currently has a Garmin 430 and steam gauges.


It has prop, mixture, and throttle controls for both engines.

You'll have an advantage over students who learn in simpler, single-lever designs like the Diamond DA-42.

In the beginning, flying the Aztec is more challenging. And it will make you a more complete pilot in the long-run. 

In 2023, this aircraft is getting an avionics upgrade. You'll have a Garmin GTN-650 and Garmin GI-275.


Either way, this aircraft prepares you to fly almost any multi-engine piston light aircraft out there.

2. CPL basic instrument module [ 10 hours ]

Time to get your instrument training rolling. 

You'll learn basic attitude instrument flying. 

5 hours will be in the Diamond DA-20. And 5 hours will be in the FNPT-2 simulator. 

3. CPL training phase 1 [ 15 hours ]

Now your flight training is really picking up steam!

You'll spend 10 hours in the single-engine DA-20 learning to flying with commercial-level precision. 

You'll fly another 5 VFR CPL hours in the multi-engine Piper Aztec. 

4. CPL training phase 2 [ 15 hours ]

It's time to round out your CPL training. 

You'll fly 15 CPL hours in the DA-20.

And you'll be hungry to get to the next step.

Which is the most challenging part of the course.


5. ME CB-IR (EASA Competence-Based Intrument Rating) [ 35 hours ]

This is where the rubber meets the road. 

Except there is no road. 

It's you, the sky, and your ability to get back to the runway even when you're flying through clouds.

You'll prepare for the real thing with 20 hours of intense simulator sessions in the FNPT-2. 

Then, you'll climb into the Aztec with your instructor and do it all for real.

You'll get 15 hours of multi-engine instrument flight time.

And those hours might teach you more than you've ever learned about flying so far. 

6. Skill tests

You've done the hard work.


Now it's time to show the Examiner what you're made of. 

In the morning, you'll take your ME CPL skill test. 

After a short lunch, you'll go back up for round two, and do your multi-engine instrument skill test. 

Passing these tests takes intense focus and preparation.

And we'll make sure you're ready. 

7. MCC (Multi-Crew Cooperation course) [ 25 hours theory, 20 hours simulator ]


You're a commercial pilot. 

And if you want to fly for a living, you'll need an MCC course before you get your first type rating. 

This course will teach you how to operate in a multi-crew environment. 

You'll be training in an immersive 737-800 simulator. 

You'll be learning how to comunicate and solve problems as a flight crew. 

And you'll get the confidence of knowing you've got the right stuff to get the job done.

8. A-UPRT (Advanced Upset Prevention and Recovery Training)

This is the final step in your modular training. 

You'll do 4 hours of distance-learning theory training, followed by an hour of instructor-led theory. 

Then, you'll fly 3 hours divided into two sessions. 

This course takes only a day if the weather cooperates. 

What makes it special? 

You can choose to do it in a fully aerobatic Slingsby Firefly or Diamond DA-20.

You'll experience 'startle'.


You'll learn how to avoid undesired aircraft states.


And you'll learn how to recover from undesired aircraft states. 

This course meets the requirements of EASA FCL.745.A


8 simple steps to becoming a commercial pilot through modular training.

It won't be easy.

You'll have to focus, be disciplined, and be open to learning

And when you reach your goal, you'll have another reason to stand up proudly, with your shoulders back. 

You'll be a commercial pilot. Ready to apply for the airlines. 

When you complete your training with us...

You'll be able to fly modern, EFIS-equipped aircraft...

You'll be able to handle "classic" aircraft that still have throttle, prop, and mixture controls...

And you'll have the confidence to walk into your airline assessment and quite possibly land your first all-important flying job.
