Air Transport Pilot's Licence

Air Transport Pilots Licence (ATP)

If you want to go all the way and become an Airline Captain this is the license that you will have to acquire. This is also the highest qualification you can get as a Pilot. This license again consists of a ground school phase and to qualify for your ATPL you will require 1500 hours of flying experience which includes

  • 250 hours as Pilot in command;
  • 75 hours of instrument flying and
  • 100 Night hours pilot in command

You must also hold a valid medical certificate and subjects can be completed as soon as you have received your CPL. After passing your last ATPL subject you have 5 years to complete your flying hours.

Ground School Training. Westline Aviation offers a complete ATPL ground school study phase lasting nine weeks, during which the six ATPL subjects are lectured.
