Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL Theory + MEP/IR/CPL/MCC) Integrated is a comprehensive training program, which will help you to acquire the professional skills needed to become a commercial pilot in the shortest time possible. The program will enable you to operate as a co-pilot in a multi-pilot environment, on multi-engine airplanes and to obtain the frozen ATPL licence.
If you prove to be an exceptional prospect and a promising candidate, you will have the opportunity to sign a letter of engagement with GetJet Airlines and to join the Cadet program. This is the fastest way to become a First Officer in commercial airlines and will guarantee you a job after the training is complete. The study program is divided into two main parts: Ground School (theory) and Practical Training (flights). The theoretical part consists of 14 different subjects. There is 757 hours of training in total, which is delivered over a period of 9 months, as well as 25 hours of Multi-Crew Cooperation and 5 hours course of Advanced Upset Prevention and Recovery training. The Ground School will take place at the AirHub facilities in Vilnius, Lithuania. Whereas you will practice your flight training in the Vilnius international airport (VNO). Theory is as important as practice, so in order to finally sit in the pilot’s chair, you will have to pass the first 4 exams at the Ground School. This means that you will start learning to control the plane after ~3 months of theoretical studies.
First, you will carry out Diamond DA40 Single Engine Piston flight training and will work towards your first solo flight, followed by a solo cross-country flight and finally the flight check. After this, you will begin flying under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) – starting off in a simulator and transitioning back into a single-engine aircraft. In the next phase, you will move onto a multi-engine aircraft and after completing the Instrument Rating in this type of an aircraft, you will have to log different types of hours to finish your ATPL Integrated studies, in order to receive the frozen ATPL. Successfully completing all of these stages means that you will be granted a Commercial Pilot Licence with a Multi-Engine Instrument Rating, also known as “CPL / MEIR”. This licence will allow you to fly passengers in twin or single-engine aircraft. Meanwhile, in order to transition into a multi-crew environment, the pilot will have to take a Multi-Crew Cooperation Course (MCC). The aim of this training is to familiarise you with interpersonal behaviour and teach you how to make the best use of crew cooperation techniques.
Last but not least, from 20 December 2019, pilots that don’t have a type rating and are planning to get one an Advanced Upset Prevention and Recvery training is introduce to increase the ability of pilots to recognize and avoid situations that can lead to airplane upsets and to improve their ability to recover control of an airplane that diverges from a crew’s desired airplane state. This is final step before starting Type Rating training!
