What is ATPL(A) Training?
Those who dream of becoming a pilot can achieve their dreams by completing the necessary training to obtain a commercial pilot license. Pilot candidates who want to obtain ATPL – Airline Trasport Pilot License continue their other practical flight training while also receiving ATPL Theory training, after completing their PPL (A) training. ATPL Theory training is a theoretical module that must be completed during the commercial pilot training period. In summary, people who have completed the CPL (A) – Commercial Pilot License training are authorized to work as commercial pilots. However, if they do not have ATPL Theory authority in their license, they cannot work as a pilot in airline companies.
Pilot candidates who want to become airline transport pilots must somehow examine the conditions for training and confirm whether they meet the conditions. After making sure that he/she meets the necessary conditions for the training, the next step to be taken is to decide how and where he/she wants to receive the training.
Flight training includes both practical training, flight training, and theoretical training. There is theoretical training in line with the content of the training, before all practical flight training. However, ATPL Theoretical training is a theoretical training module in itself. After completing ATPL Theory training, a passing grade must be obtained by participating in the exams held by the relevant civil aviation authority.
