Phase I

Months 1 –2: Foundation

Arriving in Leon you will begin the Foundation Phase: an introductory into the ATPL subjects.

Our Groundschool training is delivered by experienced pilots and are split-up into two phases in order to make learning easier for you.

Classes will be 5 hours a day, 5 days a week (Monday-Friday). The Foundation Phase will last for two months and it is a theory-only period covering all ground theory required to complete all future flight missions.

We cater for a variety of abilities so our instructors are very adaptable with their teaching; your needs will come first and we will provide you with high quality service. Like in aviation, all classes are taught in English independent of your nationality. During this stage, you will be provided with a number of materials including uniform, iPads, maps, charts, etc.

You will have to pass our school exams at the end in order to move onto Phase II.

Phase II

Months 3 – 10: ATPL Theory and VFR training

This phase is the most demanding as you will be moved to FlyBy’s second operational base in Burgos International Airport and for the next 6 months you will go through intensive VFR training and all 14 ATPL subjects will be taught in-depth.

School internal exams must be passed when any subject is completed and before you are allowed to take the official exams before the Civil Aviation Authority. Every 2 months students will have the opportunity to take their official exams with Austro Control at FlyBy facilities.

Once all 14 exams are passed and completed, students only focus on the flying element of their training. During your studies, you will be provided with different platforms to assist your learning – we provide a 1-year subscription to Bristol Groundschool which all our lessons are taught from.

VFR Flight training

The first stage in your flight training will be conducting VFR flights (visual flying). You will become used to the visual references around the airport and become familiar with handling of the aircraft. The early parts of your course will be undertaken with our highly qualified instructors, all leading up to your first solo which you will complete after 20 hours of flight experience, approximately 2 months after starting this phase (only 4 months from start of training!). We will perform a variety of manoeuvres both basic and advanced, including simulating emergency procedures. After your first solo, we will start to move further away from the airfield carrying out first local navigations and then move into cross-country flights; it is at this point where the student then starts to build up their PIC hours (Pilot in Command).

In this phase of flying you will be the opportunity to fly to other airports first with an instructor, and once you are ready, you can then move on to the final phase of VFR flying, the solo cross country stage. You will visit a number of different international airports experiencing different approach charts and traffic patterns. You will interact with air traffic controllers in busy commercial airports.

Before completing your VFR flights, you will perform a triangular flight visiting two airports before returning back to the departure airport – the trip must be 300 nautical miles. You will also experience flying at night with spectacular views.

A requirement as of January 2020 is the Upset Prevention Recurrent Training which will be performed in our aerobatic airplane. You will forge memories you will never forget!

Visual flying is all about looking outside. Being located in the North of Spain we are very fortunate to fly over such beautiful landscape – over mountains, over cities, over the coast. No matter what the season is, we will do our best to fly; so you may fly over snow-covered mountains one day and over sunny beaches the next.

Phase III

Months 11-12: IFR training

Once all exams are completed you will continue with the more challenging flights of your training: IFR. This phase cannot commence until all ATPL subjects have been passed.

Flight training begins to get even more intense with the instrumental flying (IFR) and SPIC flights.

During this stage of the course students will focus on the instruments inside the aircraft, controlling the plane whilst navigating and overall improving your cockpit management and multitasking skills. Checklists will be followed; precise procedures will be carried out and students will fly approaches to airports shared with airlines.

The IFR phase starts with SPIC flights allowing you to easily transition to the instrument flying. You will learn to complete interceptions, point to point, DME arcs and holding patterns – all of these you will likely use in your final skills test for your Commercial Pilots Licence. During IFR cross-country trips, you will carry out standard departure and arrival procedures similar to what you will experience in your future airline job.

Phase IV

Month 13: Multi Engine Training

Students then move onto multi engine training in more complex aircraft, and work towards taking the final skills test.

When it is time to advance onto the multi engine training, students will incorporate everything they have learnt so far into practice. You will learn to manage with more than one engine, as well as simulating emergencies.

Your final skills test for your Commercial Pilot Licence and Multi-Engine & Instrument Rating will be performed on our Tecnam P2006T twin engine with glass cockpit.

Phase V

Month 14: Airline Pilot Standard MCC

Finally, students move on to Multi Crew Cooperation in our A320 simulator.

The final part of your flight training will be the MCC (Multi Crew Cooperation Course) which teaches you to work with a fellow pilot, how to communicate in a team and handle different complex scenarios.

In order to prepare you for the airlines we offer the 40-hour Extended APS MCC (Multi Crew Cooperation) Course on our Entrol 4000 FNPT II simulator which will give you the opportunity to get familiarised with the Airbus A320 and gain valuable experience. This will be your first time on a jet simulator; again, carrying out instrumental procedures, however, during this part of the training, you will learn how to fly and work with another pilot. You will know how to share your workload with one another, improve your cockpit management skills, and familiarise yourself with some airline procedures.
