After gaining the necessary professional experience they are able to fulfill the requirements as nominated post-holders also. The requirements for ATP (A) integrated training (Airline Transport Pilot, Aircraft) have been mastered. Graduates are prepared to continue their studies at the MSc level. During the first year besides basic technical studies, students will learn Principles of Flight as well as familiarize themselves with Aviation English. Following successful completion of the first two semesters, students will start the practical part of the course during the following Summer and fly the aircraft. Next to aviation-related subjects, students will also gain strong engineering knowledge in various technical fields, such as mechanics, mathematics, technical drawing.
The Air Line Pilot specialization is the only one specialization that is mandatory in this way: After successful completion of the program (what is an ATPL integrated course) the following ratings will be obtained: ATPL(A) theory, CPL(A) (commercial pilot license) ME/IR (A) (multi-engine instrument rating), Night (VFR), MCC (Multi Crew Cooperation). Belonging to the exams at the end of the semesters, successful examinations at the Civil Aviation Authority are needed in the following subjects: Air Law, Aircraft General Knowledge (Airframe/Systems/Power plant, and Instrumentation, Mass and Balance, Performance, Flight Planning and Monitoring, Human Performance, Meteorology, General Navigation, Radio Navigation, Operational Procedures, Principles of Flight, VFR and IFR Communications. The practical training comprises 140 flight hours on aircraft 40 hours of simulator training (FNPT II) and 20 hours of Multi-Crew Cooperation (FNPT II).
