Modular CPL / ME / IR

Modular CPL / ME / CB-IR

Ready to become a commercial pilot via the modular route? Then you're in the right place.

We aren't the biggest, loudest, or newest flight school. But we've been training pilots since 1987. And our instructors have deep aviation experience, including at the airlines.


"Mikael taught me another level of professionalism and finesse. And Thomas was calm and brought experience from many different types of aircraft."

- Pär Erixon


Join our aviation family and become a commercial pilot with our modular CPL ME IR course.

In this course, you'll fly with experienced instructors. You'll learn how to deal with all kinds of weather. And you'll become the kind of pilot who can handle more than the minimum. The training isn't a walk in the park.

As former Kungsair ME IR student and Air Force pilot Nils Schylström says, "Sometimes the easiest way isn't the best way." 

An optional affordable housing package is available. Housing is a convenient 15 minute walk to the flight school.

Modular CPL ME IR 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 has a Garmin 430 and steam gauges.


You'll learn how to use prop, mixture, and throttle controls for both engines.

2. CPL basic instrument module [ 10 hours ]

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 ]

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 ]

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

Then you'll be prepared for the next step.


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.
