CPL Pilot education at Center Air Pilot Academy
CAPA has many years of experience of educating EASA approved professional pilots through the traditional ATPL pilot education. The pilot education concludes by completing a CPL (Commercial Pilot License) and a IR/ME (Instrument Rating/Multi Engine) test to the Danish national authority as well as a MCC course (Multi Crew Cooperation Course). The MCC course is a requirement for the integrated program, though at CAPA the course is significantly expanded and it also includes Jet Orientation Course.
The integrated professional pilot education is a full-time education that takes approximately 24 months to complete. As an aspiring pilot on the integrated pilot education, you are eligible for an increased SU (student allowance) for the entirety of the education. A few key differences between the integrated pilot education and the modular pilot education is that there is a planned structure for students to follow on the integrated course where every single flight and theory lesson is described, as well as most flights being flown as dual flights, which means that you are supervised and guided by an instructor to a higher degree, which keeps an eye on your progress and can provide valuable feedback for your continual growth as a pilot.
The training partly takes place in the aircraft and partly in the approved high quality simulators (B737 and A320). The big advantage of utilizing simulators for some hours of the training is that it provides an unique opportunity to stop in-flight and for example discuss challenges, as well as simulate and practice the situations a pilot can risk facing such as engine failure, fires and much more under pre-determined conditions. This allows us to practice a wide variety of scenarios more effectively and thus get more out every lesson. All of our simulators are approved and can be flown exactly like an airplane.
The ATPL theory is a combination of CBT (Computer Based Training) and classroom teaching. The following courses has to be passed with a minimum of 75%: Gen. cert (radio certificate), Human Performance and Limitations, Meteorology, Airlaw, Principles of Flight, Performance, Instrumentation, Mass and Balance, Airframe Systems and Powerplant, Operations Procedures, Radio Navigation, Flight Planning, General Navigation.
After a well-completed education at CAPA you should without further flight experience, be eligible for direct entry to a variety of the airlines.
To increase the job opportunities further we are utilizing the great experience of many of our instructors to implement an MCC APS program - an expanded MCC course - in the end of the education. The course has the goal of preparing the aspiring pilot for a typerating and increase competencies in the multi-crew environment. You can read more about this course under MCC APS - Airline Pilot Standard.
