Why this course is the optimal choice for you

The traditional method of merging theory and flight training simultaneously simply isn’t the most effective approach. Instead, embrace the flexibility of studying theory from the comfort of your own home, at your own pace, without the constraints of having to meet at an airport or adhere to a rigid course schedule. This method allows you to seamlessly integrate your studies into your daily life.

You can take your written exam with the aviation authorities in your country, or opt for international centres that offer these exams worldwide. By prioritizing your theory exams first, you’ll liberate a significant amount of time to focus entirely on your practical flight training later on.

Furthermore, you have the freedom to choose any flight training school in Europe that offers the best weather conditions, availability of aircraft, and access to flight instructors. Optimal flight training environments minimize distractions and ensure continuous, focused learning.

If you dedicate approximately 15 hours a week to your studies, you can complete your written exams in just three to four months, putting you on the fastest track to achieving your flying aspirations. This strategic approach not only optimizes your learning experience but also accelerates your journey to becoming a skilled pilot.

This is what the course includes?
