The EASA ATPL Integrated Course is the best path you should follow towards a successful pilot career. The ATPL course, is the quickest way to achieve the commercial pilot license without having to take other licenses before. At the end of this pilot training you will hold a CPL (Commercial Pilot License) with the ME (Multi-engine) and IR (Instrument Rating), as well as the ATPL theory, which will allow you to later obtain an ATP License.

What does the ATPL
pilot training include?

During the first phase of your ATPL Integrated Course, you will attend 786 hours of in-class tuition with an experienced Theoretical Knowledge Instructor. The instruction is conducted with the assistance of interactive presentations, mock tests with atpl exams questions and everything you will need in order to successfully pass the EASA ATPL exams. In addition to the following 13 ATPL Subjects, TAE Aviation Academy had also included in the ATPL Integrated program, the study of the KSA.

The first solo flight, is one of the most unforgettable experiences you will have during your pilot career. In this phase, you will complete exercises up to the first solo flight. This training comprises a total of at least 10 hours flight with an instructor on a Single Engine aeroplane, until you make it to your first solo flight!

The acronym VFR stands for Visual Flight Rules. At this stage of your training you will fly at least 10hrs with an Instructor and 10hrs solo flights. You will learn how to maximize your performance and improve your take-offs and landings.

This stage of your training is of great importance. You will complete at least 40hrs of solo flights and get familiar with traffic pattern operations at different aerodromes far from Megara Airport.

You will also complete the Night Rating in an International Airport of Greece. A night rating allows a pilot to fly during the night under visual flight rules (VFR). A true aviator should be able to fly under any conditions and this is why EASA Night Rating is so crucial.

The Single Engine Instrument Rating (SEP/IR), comprises of at least 55hours Instrument Flight Training. This may include flying in or on top of clouds, or flying with reduced visibility. You will learn how to fly with sole reference to instruments. With the help of our experienced flight instructors, you will achieve the transition from visual to instrument flight.

In addition to actual flights, TAE’s in-house AL250 allows you to perform all procedures risk-free, including coping with instrument failures, system and engine malfunctions, and other emergency situations.

Finally, at this stage, the PBN is included. But what is performance based navigation? The PBN meaning is performance based navigation and is now part of IR training. TAE’s ATPL Integrated Program is PBN Approved as well as our in-house simulator.

The Multi Engine Rating is part of the 6th stage of your ATPL training. Flying a Multi Engine Piston DA42 aircraft, is a unique experience, as you will follow the multi engine training which includes operations with one engine simulated inoperative. Additionally, the Multi engine instrument rating (ME/IR) qualifies you to fly cross country without visual reference to ground features in multi-engine aircraft. All of the ME Rating is performed on TAE’S Diamond DA42, which is a multi engine piston aircraft

UPRT stands for airplane ‘Upset Prevention and Recovery Training’. You may wonder ‘why do commercial pilots need UPRT’? During this stage of your pilot training you will get to know how to cope with the event of “loss of control in flight” and to develop the necessary competence and resilience to be able to apply appropriate recovery techniques during upsets.

More specifically, the aim of the flight training is to conduct exercises to demonstrate:

The aim of multi crew cooperation course (MCC), is to help you become proficient in multi-crew co-operation (MCC) to safely operate multi-pilot, multi-engine airplanes. The objectives of MCC training are optimum decision making, communication, allocation of tasks, mutual supervision, use of checklists, teamwork, and support throughout all phases of flight under normal, abnormal and emergency conditions.


What aircraft and simulators will you fly during your ATPL Integrated course?

The fleet you will be trained at, consists of Diamond DA40, Diamond DA42, Cessna 172 aircraft, as well as AL250 and A320 Type Simulators.
