Fast-Track Hour Building and ATPL Theory Training

FAST-TRACK HOUR BUILDING

Students that have gained their private pilot licence and have a VFR night rating are eligible to move on to the next stage of modular commercial flight training and begin building their Pilot in Command (PIC) 100 hours and enroll for the all-important Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) theory training.

Pilot Path now have an excellent fast-track hour building option with our amazing partners in Southwest Florida meaning you can complete all PIC 100 hours in as little as 4-weeks! Always remember, when deciding where to hour build, don’t assume the cheapest rate possible is the right way to go. Structured hour building is viewed more favourably at interview and assessment stage with airlines as opposed to ‘fuel burning’.

Hours building ensures that as a pilot wanting to fly commercially, you have the knowledge, skills and experience to be able to achieve the level required to pass the CPL and IR skills tests.

At Pilot Path, we work with our partner flight schools to deliver structured hour building programs to help you on this leg of your flight training journey. Hour building is the time spent becoming a more rounded pilot, practising all of the things you are taught during your Private Pilot’s Licence and to learn to fly within the much tighter tolerances found in the CPL & IR skills tests.

ATPL (Air Transport Pilot Licence) training takes place in the form of 13 examinations split over various subjects. This is a mandatory requirement when completing your commercial pilot training and will heavily compliment the ground-based training you have already completed. Your ATPL theory course can be complete in either Hybrid distance and class learning or fully remote depending on the partner school you choose to attend.

ATPL exams are created to check you have the correct level of theoretical knowledge that you’ll need to become a pilot and handle any situation that may occur whilst flying. While some of our students may find the prospect of studying for their ATPL daunting, with the right study materials and support, many of our students pass their exams first time.
