Aviation studies the practical aspects of machine-based flight. Students of this subject may study airplane design, flight test protocols or other aspects of heavier-than-air aircraft. Later jobs in this field include airline pilot, aircraft engineer and safety inspector.
The training for flight instructor (Flight Instructor = FI) as well as the training for instrument flying instructor (Instrument Rating Instructor = IRI and Multi Engine
The training for flight instructor (Flight Instructor = FI) as well as the training for instrument flying instructor (Instrument Rating Instructor = IRI and Multi-Engine Instructor = MEI) are specialised trainings.
FI – Flight Instructor The training for flight instructor (basic training) has already been part of the Martinair Flight Academy for many years. The requirements for starting the training are a valid CPL with SEP class rating (EASA License). A minimal of 5 hours has to be flown in the last 6 months preceding the start of the course and an entrance test has to be passed. This test is mandatory.
The essentials in the theoretical part of the training for flight instructor are especially teaching student pilots about aerodynamics and aviation law and learning how to give classical briefings....
With the integrated training course you will obtain a Commercial Pilot Licence, Multi engine, Instrument rating and a frozen ATPL.
The difference between ATPL and CPL in brief:
CPL – Commercial Pilot License
ATPL – Airline Transport Pilot License /1500 hours of experience
The Integrated course offers the opportunity to get the licenses(ratings) in 24 months. The ground schools will be given in classrooms, but distance learning via internet will be used for ATPL theory. The training is divided into modules and in some modules the training can be combined with other activities of a candidate for example work/solo flights.
To participate in the integrated course you must hold a high school diploma or equivalent with subjects math, physics and English.
The PPL (Private Pilot Licence) is an EASA License, with which almost all small airplanes may be flown under VFR, without the restriction of European borders. Once you ha
The PPL (Private Pilot License) is an EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) License, with which almost all single-engine airplanes may be flown. The PPL License can be extended with a number of qualifications. For example flying blind qualification (Instrument Rating), which is necessary for instrument flying.
During this course you will learn how to fly an airplane and gradually explore the capabilities of the airplane. All basic flying techniques are discussed. This involves take off, landing, climbing, level flight, turns, stalls, descents, circuit flying, emergency procedures, etc.
As student pilot you work towards your first solo flight, which means flying without your instructor next to you. The next step after your first solo flight is to learn how to navigate with the aid of charts, compass, radio beacons etc. First you fly to other aerodromes with your instructor next to you and later you do this during solo flights....
