Project Description


Airline Transport Pilot License

The Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) is obtained by attending a modular course that provides a complete knowledge of the theory as well as the piloting skills and legal titles, which are necessary to perform the career of airline pilot.

The ATPL modular course consists of various theoretical and practical modules. The student will have the opportunity to complete all the necessary steps within the ATO (Approved Training Organization) and obtain the respective licenses and ratings under the supervision of the best professionals in the sector.

Professional Aviation puts safety first. For this reason the flight school is exclusively equipped with the most modern aircraft, all bought new, all maintained exclusively by our maintenance center and all equipped with the most modern safety devices. Just think that our oldest aircraft is a 2011 model. No other Italian reality can boast this primacy.

New, modern and safe aircraft to teach students in the best environment, with the best tools and top-notch technologies.


Modules necessary to become an airline pilot

The modules to become an airline pilot are as follows:

  • PPL (Private Pilot License)
  • ATPL THEORY (Airline Transport Pilot License – theory)
  • HOURS BUILDING (building of hours)
  • NIGHT RATING (night flight qualification)
  • IR (Instrument Rating)
  • COMPLEX RATING (retractable gear and variable pitch propeller rating)
  • MEP and IR-ME (“Multi-Engine Piston” rating and transition from the IR to Multi-Engine)
  • CPL (Commercial Pilot License) + UPRT


Professional Aviation offers several solutions to meet the different needs of its students.

The theoretical part of the ATPL can be done both in the classroom (650 h) and through distance learning (90% at home and 10% in classroom).

Practical course

After completing the PPL on the P2008JC aircraft, the student will first perform the consolidation activity (Hours building) as Pilot in Command again on the P2008JC aircraft, then the IR (Instrument Rating) on the Cirrus SR20 aircraft, the Multi-Engine Piston and Complex (MEP/Complex) module on the P2006T aircraft and, finally, obtain the Commercial Pilot License (CPL) on the P2006T aircraft.

Cross-country national and international missions will also be carried out to complete a training that will not only lead to the achievement of the license, but also provide an important level of skills and experience.

The quality of our training is the key that distinguishes us from the “manufacturers” of licenses. Our main goal is to train capable and prepared pilots. Getting a license should only be an aftermath.

Requirements for enrolling in the course

  • Eight grade License (USA), Year 9 (UK, AUS, NZ);
  • 1st Class medical examination (before starting the flight activity, not necessary for enrolment);
  • Passing of the entrance test on basic notions of Mathematics, Physics and English;
  • The ATPL course is with a restricted number of attendants. To register, you must pass a selection.


Professional Aviation is led by experienced professionals in the sector and stands out from all other schools for the level of excellence, always placed in the foreground both in the choice of airplanes and flight instructors, as well as in the infrastructures offered.

Professional Aviation has a team of full-time dedicated instructors hired by the company who are all education professionals as well as flight professionals. The fleet, entirely owned, is made up exclusively of the latest generation Glass Cockpit aircraft.

The infrastructures are cared for, well organized and designed to make the student’s experience pleasant and profitable, considering that he/she will spend a lot of time in them.

The internal maintenance workshop, with highly qualified technicians in-house, guarantees the highest standard of efficiency and safety. The planes are all purchased new and are always maintained within the premises of the company in order to be able to guarantee their safety.

The training program is structured on an ongoing basis in such a way as to be able to achieve the final goal in a minimum of 18 months from the start. However, the average time necessary to complete the course is 24 months.

The Professional Aviation program is based on techniques that originate from the Air Force and aims to train the character of the Officer, other than to train excellent pilots.

The teachers involved in the theoretical and practical sessions of the training program are all selected for their human skills as well as their experience. The result of this training allows you to conclude the process with the attainment of an excellent product, such as our students can be considered, with solid knowledge and superb flying skills, in a pleasant environment of considerable personal and technical growth.

This is our strongest motivation, because our goals are the goals of our students.

If you are determined, willing, passionate and sure that this is your career path, Professional Aviation is the right way to reach it!
