The EFT EASA Fast Track Programme is designed to take you from zero time to the full EASA Commercial License with Instrument Rating in the most cost effective way.

 

The course combines EASA and FAA licenses to expedite your training. The additional training resulting in an FAA PPL allows you to attend the ATPL ground school immediately upon a successful flight test result regardless of the wait time for your EASA PPL license, which can take three to four weeks to be received from the issuing authority. In addition, you can do your time building utilizing your FAA PPL whilst attending your ATPL written exam course.

 

Obtaining the FAA IR is a significant benefit by allowing IFR flight time to be gained which will be critical when obtaining your EASA IR back in Europe,

based on new regulations.

By following this route successfully you will be qualified to fly for the airlines in Europe

in as little as 12 months at a fraction of the cost of doing the same in Europe.

 

It is essential to realise there will be no compromise in quality. European Flight Training only utilises fully qualified European instructors and you will be trained to the highest standards focusing on the European Licence requirements which will meet or exceed the standard needed to pass the FAA flight tests.

 

Our EASA Airline Pilot Programme combines the best of both worlds, broadening your knowledge as a pilot,

and offering two licenses

at a cost often lower than obtaining just one in Europe.

 

Each phase is designed to ensure that you meet

the regulatory

requirements for the next phase.

Phase 1

(8 weeks)

Your foundation begins with a combined EASA and FAA PPL. European Flight Training’s integrated approved syllabus covers the EASA & FAA PPL and Night Rating.

 

Once complete, you can immediately enter Phase 2 without having to wait for EASA to issue your PPL as you will have an ICAO license when you achieve your FAA PPL.

Phase 3

(40 weeks)

The EASA Airline Transport Pilots License Theory course is a six month program where you attend workshops in the classroom for 20 hours per week preparing for the 14 written exams that will qualify you for the EASA commercial license, the EASA instrument rating, and the EASA ATPL.

 

As described in detail on the ATPL page, the program is a hybrid of residential and distance learning to find the best of both courses. Unlike a full time residential course, our instructors do not waste time reading from the manuals. Rather, they spend their time discussing and teaching the subject in detail which leaves you the rest of the day to self-study the question bank.

 

During this phase you will also build several hours per week pilot in command time. This is essential to your overall progress and helps to keep you motivated and increases your skills. We see, time and time again, when students give up flying during their academic phase and how much they can struggle later on which can lead to additional training if needed. Airlines prefer the integrated approach to training for good reason; after all, you’re studying to be a better pilot not a university professor!

Phase 2 

(5 weeks)

After completing your last EASA ATPL theory exams you will immediately commence your FAA Instrument Rating. This serves your final goal in several ways. To begin with, it allows you a much more cost effective way to obtain your EASA Instrument Rating by reducing the course required in Europe. Secondly, the training counts towards the vital 200 hours total time required under EASA regulations before you can take the CPL flight test. Thirdly, once you have obtained the FAA IR you can build essential Pilot in Command time under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) which is extremely beneficial during the conversion to your EASA IR. Benefits and savings all around!

 

It is essential for you to appreciate that your FAA IR course will be conducted by our European instructors and meets the requirements of the EASA IR syllabus. In every sense, you will be doing the same training as if you were enrolled on the EASA IR Course (USA portion), which consists of 40 hours of training.It is required by regulation that you undertake local familiarization/acclimatization back in the UK or Europe which experience has shown is normally around 15 hours. However, if you obtain 50 hours PIC under IFR (Instrument Flight Rules), which you could do following our program detailed above, you are actually exempt from the minimum IR training requirement back in Europe.

Phase 4

(3 weeks)

The next phase could be either the EASA Commercial Pilots License or the Multi Engine Piston training. If your choice is to do the CPL in a multiengine aircraft then the multi training would need to be completed first (6 hours minimum). If you chose to do your CPL in a single engine aircraft then you would proceed straight to the CPL course. The CPL training will culminate in a flight test with an examiner appointed by the Authority and can be conducted in either a Single Engine Piston (Land) or Multi Engine Piston (Land) depending on your selected aircraft training choice.

Phase 4

(3 weeks)

The next phase could be either the EASA Commercial Pilots License or the Multi Engine Piston training. If your choice is to do the CPL in a multiengine aircraft then the multi training would need to be completed first (6 hours minimum). If you chose to do your CPL in a single engine aircraft then you would proceed straight to the CPL course. The CPL training will culminate in a flight test with an examiner appointed by the Authority and can be conducted in either a Single Engine Piston (Land) or Multi Engine Piston (Land) depending on your selected aircraft training choice.

Phase 5

If you completed your CPL in a single engine aircraft you will now need to get your multi engine privileges by completing your Multi Engine Piston (Land) rating.

IR conversion and

MCC training in an

EASA member state

Before being ready to apply for a job as a First Officer with an airline, the EASA Instrument Rating and a Multi Crew Cooperation courses must be completed.

 

Under the EASA rules, as you will hold an FAA IR you can choose any country within the EU to complete the conversion. Many choose the warm climates of Spain for the lower costs, but some may choose our training partner in the UK. The UK CAA testing standards are known to be one of the highest in the industry which therefore makes the training a bit more expensive. Either way, the choice is yours.

 

The IR conversion training is estimated to take around two weeks; however, this can vary due to location, weather and other factors.

 

A final element is a two week course in a simulator known as the Multi Crew Cooperation or MCC course which prepares you for working in the team environment of a multi crew cockpit.

 

When all these elements are completed

you would have the required qualifications necessary to apply for your airline job!

The IR conversion and MCC courses can be conducted at any training provider you choose. However, if you would like a seamless program from zero time to full certification we can assist you by making arrangements for these important necessary sections in Europe with the help of one of our training partners.

 

Arrangements include training to complete your instrument rating conversion, the MCC course, accommodation during that time and, for those who do well in their training, a positive recommendation to an airline.

European Flight Training started in 1999 as an aviation school offering EASA Flight Training in Florida and has developed into one of the most prestigious aviation flight schools in the United States.

 

European Flight Training offers, through its parent company Aviator College, an Aviation Degree Program which has specific emphasis on the pilot training aspects needed to meet the requirements of the commercial airline pilot industry.

EFT is one of the few flight schools in the USA to offer approved training for the European pilot’s license, zero through ATPL, at its approved EASA ATO number 0008.
