What pilots and students on our courses have to say

Hundreds of our students, licensed pilots and flight instructors are the best measure of our reputation as well as our guarantee of quality.

When I flew for the first time with One Air I noticed that their standards of safety and procedures are of the same level as those of airlines. The approachability and friendliness of the instructors and management combined with aircraft equipped with the latest in technology make One Air a benchmark for the training of future airline pilots.

Agustín ContrerasCAPTAIN RYANAIR 737-800

One Air is the dream of an aviation enthusiast who fought to provide what neither he nor many of us had when when we did our training in this exciting profession. A serious school, with qualified staff, the latest generation aircraft and impecable maintenance. Everything is lovingly cared for so whether you’re a casual flyer, student or aviation professional you will leave with a smile. Whenever I can, I pass by to take advantage of their aircraft and go for a flight along the coast which, without doubt, is something I would highly recommend doing!

Álvaro QuintanoCaptain 737-800NG Norwegian Air Shuttle

I will never forget my time at One Air. They gave me my first working opportunity as a pilot and their confidence. For me, One Air is a reference point for modernity and innovation, with clear ideas and great spirit. During my time here I have improved greatly as a pilot. From the management I have always received support, excellent treatment, flexible timetabling and great working conditions. I must give my thanks to my colleagues and everyone who helped me to become the pilot I am today. I thank you very much with all my heart!

Carlos Noé BarbaFirst officerBoeing 717-200 Volotea and Ex-instructor

My time with One Air has been tremendously enriching and challenging. I have been able to teach what I know and also to learn from my colleagues and students. The experience of flying with a new fleet of Diamond aircraft in my city (Málaga) is, without a doubt, something I will miss in the coming years. The treatment received during my time as an instructor has been exemplary; treatment which I have always tried to pass on to my students, by giving my best and enjoying my work.

Agustín GrondonaFirst Officer Ryanair BOEING 737-800 Ex-Instructor One Air

One Air was the first place to have trusted me to work with them and it was a luxury to start out with the latest aircraft and installations. Málaga is the ideal location to train in a professional setting and with unequalled weather conditions. If I had to return to working as an instructor One Air would be my first choice.

Alberto Medina BarreraFirst Officer A320 Vueling

I recently started my adventure with One Air, to train as a commercial pilot, and I’m very proud of the training that I’m receiving to pursue my career and of the magnificent team that they have here. Thanks to them I’m making my dreams a reality.

Marcos Jesús CotesStudent Pilot

I completed the Professional Drone Pilot / RPAs course with DJI Phantom 3 drone, being trained in the operation of the same. I’m delighted with the teaching methods which enabled me to learn easily and without any prior knowledge.

Elisa ReyProfesional Drone Pilot / RPAs#

To be able to do a renewal of my ME (Multi Engine) rating in a Diamond DA42 G1000 was a absolute luxury. And flying from an international airport was an amazing experience. Best of all was that the price was less than the average and all the flight hours were real as opposed to simulated!.

Susan ChariceCommercial Pilot ATPL/ CPL#

During 2013 and 2014 I had the good fortune to be working as an instructor for One Air. From the day I joined the team I was received with the great warmth and professionalism which characterises One Air and which has continued to this day. I have witnessed its growth as a school and its great ambition, always based on instruction in aircraft with the latest technology and with highly qualified instructors. I’m proud to have been a part of One Air and I’ll always be grateful to them for for the treatment I received and for having allowed me to develop my profession in the best working environment and by the best means. Without hesitation I would recommend One Air to anyone who dreams of becoming a pilot!

FAQS

One air, the differences 

•  What is the most important thing to take into consideration when choosing a flying school?

There are several important considerations but primarily the team involved, the age and type of the fleet and the ground based facilites e.g. simulators and learning aids. It is also important to take into account the airport environment as training offered at an international airport like Málaga will always be much more complete than at any other location. Finally there is the climate conditions, as training flights are made under favourable weather conditions, an area with better weather conditions will enable you to complete your flight hours more quickly.

•  Is it better to do a CPL+ATPL course in a modular or integrated format?

In the modular course each phase that you complete doesn’t need to be repeated. In the integrated course you finish everything or you don’t have any type of licence. In the USA 90% of pilots obtain their licences through modular courses. Additionally in our training you will complete 200 hours of actual flight, an essential requirement when it comes to interviews with airlines.

•  What is MCC, where is the best place to do it?

MCC stands for Multi-Crew Cooperation. It’s best to do this course in a type-specific simulator designed for popular aircraft (A320/B737). In addition, with us you will do the MCC course in a real full motion Category D simulator used by airlines.

•  Is the age of the fleet of aircraft important?

Yes. In One Air you will only fly new aircraft equipped with the latest technology.

•  Where is it best to do an instrument (IFR) course?

Without a doubt in an ILS equipped airport and if it’s 24h even better. Aerodromes like Cuatro Vientos in Madrid are visual so the types of operations are limited. In Málaga, however, you will enjoy flying under instrument flight rules from a 24h international airport.

•  What is a flight simulator and which one is better?

As the word suggests a flight simulator emulates the conditions of flight. In One Air before beginning to fly you will do an orientation course in our simulator. This later allows you to take full advantage of your time in the air. At One Air we have one of the best Advanced simulators available, and the first of its type in Spain, the FNPT II ALSIM X. is prepared to perform the MCC and JOC AIRBUS a320 course – Boeing 737-800.

Requirements

  •  What medical requirements are needed to obtain a pilot licence?

The minimum requirements are to be at least 17 years of age and to pass a simple Class 1 medical examination in the case of opting for the Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL A)
For a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) or Light Aircraft Pilot Licence (LAPL) you must also be 17 years of age but only require a Class 2 medical examination.
At One Air we will give you the necessary information in order to obtain these certificates.

Do I need any special physical preparation?

  • Can I fly If I don’t have perfect vision?

Yes, flying with certain conditions is permitted.

  • How do I keep my medical certificate valid?

You must do a medical examination in an AESA recognised medical centre.

  • Do I need to speak English?

Depending on the course chosen, it could be a requirement.

  • What are the requirements for entry into the school?

In addition to the corresponding medical certificate if you opt for the commercial pilot course you must have A-level equivalency or take an entrance exam. At One Air we will provide information and preparation for you to pass satisfactorily. If you want to be a private pilot the only requirements are to be eager to learn and have fun in the exciting world of aviation.

  • How do I maintain my pilot licence?

By doing the corresponding flight revalidations.

Common Doubts
