Phase 1 – Private Pilot License

Private Pilot License

The aim of the PPL training is to teach the student pilot to fly safely and efficiently by day under Visual Flight Rules (VFR).

Course Duration:

Full Time – 6 to 8 Weeks

Pre entry Requirements:

  • Must be 16 years old to start.
  • Class 2 medical certificate
  • Be 17 years old for License Issue

Private Pilot Level Ground School:

  • Human Performance
  • Meteorology
  • Navigation
  • Operational Procedures
  • Principles of Flight
  • VFR Communication

The theoretical training for the PPL(A) license consists of 102 hours, of which 87 are online lectures and 15 hours of session, also online.


The PPL Practical Training Course Consists Of:

  • Minimum of 45 hours Total Flight Time.
  • Minimum of 25 hours of dual instruction.
  • Minimum of 10 hours of solo flight.
  • 9 Ground Theory Exams.

It is possible to begin practical training for PPL while you still work on the theory exams.


Before each milestone during your practical training, there will be some ground instruction to prepare you towards that milestone (f.e. before navigation).

  • 10 Hours in total


Phase 2 – EASA ATPL Theory


We at FNA EU appreciate your time an understand that while you study for the ATPL theory exams, you may prefer to do in as a distance learning. Therefore, we offer you to take this part with one of our ground school partners where all of the 650 hours of ground school are done online via online training system, presentations, videos, live lessons and forums. This allows you to progress at your own pace. It has been carefully designed to split the subjects across modules.


The 14 ATPL theory subjects are:

  • Instrumentation
  • Air Law
  • Operational Procedures
  • Human Performance
  • Principles of Flight
  • Radio Navigation.
  • General Navigation.
  • VFR Communications.
  • IFR Communications.
  • Flight Planning.
  • Aircraft General Knowledge.
  • Mass & Balance.


Phase 3 – EASA Night Rating

The night rating course consists of 5hours flying at night. This will allow you to fly under VFR at night time.

  • 3 Hours ground instruction
  • 5 Hours Night Flight training


Phase 4 – time building


Student pilots will be required to continue the flying to build the flight experience required towards the Multi Engine rating, Instrument rating and Commercial Pilot License. The PIC flight time will support the student pilot to develop the flying skills required while being assessed for the required skills as well as learning new ones.


Phase 5 – Multi Engine Piston (MEP) Rating


The multi-engine class rating allows a single engine pilot to transit to the twin engine aircraft under visual flight rules (VFR).

The Multi Engine Piston class rating (MEP) briefings are conducted together with the pre-flight briefings which happen before all dual flights. In addition to a 7 hours ground school which will prepare you for the transition to flying a twin-engine airplane considering the changes in its behavior. Aerodynamic etc.

  • 7 Hours Ground school
  • 6 Hours of Multi Engine flight training


Pre entry Requirements:

  • 70 hours PIC.


Phase 6 – Instrument Rating (IR) Training


The aim of the Instrument Rating (IR) modular course is to train PPL (A) or CPL (A) holders to a standard that will allow them to operate airplanes under instrument flight rules and in instrumental meteorological conditions.

The IR module consists of flying training in the C172 for the single engine IR, the Piper Seneca for the multiengine IR and the FNPT II for the synthetic portion of the training.

Training Duration:

  • Approximately 4-6 weeks.

Pre-Entry Requirements

  • Hold a current airplane license, PPL or CPL.
  • Have met the Night Qualification requirements.
  • Hold a current class 1 medical.
  • Passed ATPL exams.
  • Total 50 hours PIC


The IR training consists of:

  • 15 hours flying instruction on C172.
  • 35 hours flying instruction in the Simulator.
  • 5 hours flying instruction on Piper Seneca

Once these are completed to the satisfactory standards, the student will be allowed to attempt the IR Skill Test


Phase 7 – Commercial Pilot Training

The CPL training will raise the standard of flying to a level where one can surpass and improve their level of flying skills.

Training Duration: 2 to 4 weeks.

Pre-Entry Requirements:

  • Hold a current Class 1 Medical Certificate
  • Be the holder of a PPL.
  • 150 hours flight time as pilot (100 as Pilot in


  • Passed ATPL theory examinations.
  • Completed a Night Rating.


The CPL course consists of:

  • Minimum 15 hours dual flying instruction on the C172 and Piper Arrow II.


Requirements for license issue:

  • 18 years of age
  • 200 hours total flying time to include:
  • Minimum 100 Hours PIC.
  • Minimum 20 Hours VFR Cross Country.
  • A cross country flight of at least 300nm landing in at least 2 different aerodromes from departure aerodrome.
