FlyJAA facilitates a number of different flight trainings in America. A brief overview of the different types of flight trainings is described below. For more information about a specific flight training programme, click on the links in the text.
The EASA PPL (Private Pilot License) is the basic pilot license. With this you become a private pilot. With the EASA PPL pilot license you are only allowed to fly privately, you are not allowed to earn an income by flying. At the same time, you receive a night-rating, which also allows you to fly at night. You can attain the PPL license within 21 days.
To be eligible for other pilot licences, a pilot with a EASA PPL license must have flown a minimum of 150 hours. These flying hours can be effectively accumulated by taking advantage of FlyJAA's hour building programme.
EASA CPL / EASA ATPL
Have you completed your hour building? Then you are eligible for the flight training EASA CPL / ATPL. Before you start the EASA CPL , it is advisable to first complete EASA ATPL . The duration of the ATPL course is six months. ATPL requires you to take 14 theory-exams. If you intend to work for an airline, EASA ATPL is essential. Subsequently you can begin with the CPL training.
With the ATPL theory in combination with CPL, you are qualified to fly for an airline. A EASA CPL (Commercial Pilot License) is a professional pilot license which authorises you to fly commercially. Without EASA ATPL, you need to take the CPL theory-exams. Our advice is: first complete the ATPL route, as it exempts you from the theory-part of CPL.
FlyJAA also offers the option of getting a so-called multi engine rating called EASA MEP. In this module you are trained to fly a twin engined aircraft. You can complete this module within one week. Thereafter, you are qualified to fly twin engined aircraft.
Finally, we offer a flight instructor training course: EASA FI. With this rating you can work as a flight instructor. With the EASA FI rating you are qualified to give EASA PPL , as well as EASA CPL instruction. The duration of the basic course is four to five weeks. You can then follow additional modules: multi engine and IMC. Each of these modules require an extra week of training.
