Air Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) Preparation Course and Flight Test

Flight Options provides a course of preparation for the ATPL Flight Test. The training will focus on the competencies required of a pilot-in-command of a multi-crew aircraft operation. Depending on your level of experience, the course will also cover multi-crew operations, instrument rating skills, multi-engine aircraft competencies and general piloting abilities. Once the course is completed, Flight Options will conduct the Flight Test.

The course has 3 entry levels:

  1. Pilots without the relevant C510 Type Rating;
  2. Pilots with a relevant C510 Type Rating; or
  3. Pilots who require a MCC Certificate

The flight test will be conducted in our C510 Mustang Level D certified full flight simulator.
