Vår internasjonale pilotutdanning består av mange timer med høykvalitets klasseromsundervisning i ATPL (A), den høyeste sertifiseringen for kommersielle piloter. Alle fag er like viktige.
I den teoretiske delen av utdanningen vil studentene motta undervisning i 13 fag, og de vil måtte bestå 13 eksamener. Fagene er fordelt over tre blokker, og etter hver teoriblokk avlegges offisielle eksamener i de fagene man har vært gjennom. Den første teoriblokken består av fire fag, den andre blokken består av fem fag, og den tredje blokken består av fire fag.
Den totale varigheten på den teoretiske delen av utdanningen er 764 timer, hvorav de fleste timer vil tilbringes i et klasserom, men studentene vil også få besøke flysimulator, hangar og flyplasstårn.
All undervisning gjennomføres på engelsk av våre internasjonale teoriinstruktører.

Area 100 Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes (KSA)
The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) integrated ATPL(A) training requires a comprehensive understanding of aviation theory, practices, and regulations. One of the key areas in this programme is the 100 Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes (KSA) which covers a wide range of topics related to air operations, aerodynamics, meteorology, navigation, and communication. The aim of this subject is to prepare pilot trainees with the necessary knowledge and skills to operate an aircraft safely and efficiently, while developing attitudes that promote professionalism, ethical behaviour, and a commitment to lifelong learning. The 100 KSA subject is essential for any commercial pilot seeking an ATPL(A) license, and its mastery is vital for a successful career in aviation.
The area includes a variety of assessments, including summative assessments at the end of each theory block, as well as formative assessments throughout theoretical subjects. These assessments are designed to provide students with feedback on their progress and help them identify areas where they may need additional support. In addition, students are required to take a Mental Maths test in the final block of the theoretical training, which helps to ensure that they can perform essential calculations quickly and accurately while in flight.
