At the beginning of your training you will attend a basic theoretical course aimed at giving you the knowledge required for the first phases of flight training. After the basic course you will attend the ATPL (Airline Transport Pilot License) theoretical course. The ATPL theory consists of 750 hours classroom instruction and comprises 14 subjects. 

Basic theoretical course

The basic theory consists of 9 introductory subjects to aviation and the schedule permits approximately one subject per week. The subjects are divided into 8 weeks, but each week begins with self-study followed by 2-4 days in classroom. The self-study is organized with a prepared study schedule which includes reading, computer based training, assignments and questionnaires. The self-study in each subject is then followed up with an experienced instructor in the classroom where the students will work with the subject in effective learning activities such as by discussions, exercises and conventional instruction.
