Commercial Pilot Course + ATPL

Frequently Asked Questions

To work as a commercial or airline pilot, you need to obtain a CPL – Commercial Pilot Licence – and pass the ATPL theory test (giving you a frozen ATPL until you reach the required flight hours). Once you have these, you can fly for an airline.

To begin training for the PPL and continue with CPL training you must be at least 17 years old, pass a Class 1 medical examination, have a high school certificate (or equivalent) or have attended a vocational training school.

You do not need to have a university degree to obtain a CPL licence. In fact, 98% of airlines only require candidates to have a CPL licence, ME+IR ratings and an MCC course.

Do a lot of research and ask for advice from professionals in order to study your options and make the best decision. At One Air, we are happy to listen to you and provide advice, no strings attached.

Each country has its own regulations. Spain, together with several other countries in the EU region, is subject to EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) rules. However, all licenses are issued following the international standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and there are agreements in place between ICAO member states to allow for the conversion of pilot licenses.

Yes, it is possible at certain stages of the training, such as the initial theory phase. Other stages cannot be done remotely and must be taken in person at our facilities.

Another advantage is that One Air is the official venue for SENASA exams, so if you study with us, you won’t have to move anywhere else.

It depends, since we also offer training by modules, which is more flexible in both work/life balancing and payment methods. You can check the prices of our courses on our website or speak with one of our training advisors.

The average duration of the course is between 16 and 24 months, but it depends largely on how much work each individual puts into it. At One Air, we design the courses for training to be completed in 16 months, but we are flexible and can adapt to our students’ needs.

Commercial pilots will have to get a Class 1 medical certificate. You can check the requirements on the Spanish Civil Aviation Authority (AESA) website. Glasses are allowed within certain limits.

Yes, of course you can! The Spanish pilot licence, which is a European licence, is issued according to some of the most restrictive standards and, therefore, you can fly to different countries and even operate from them.

Yes, currently all companies require the Multiple-Crew Cooperation (MCC) Course. Subsequently, and depending on the company, you will have to get a type rating – generally after the interview has been completed, as the conditions will be specific for each company. At One Air, our CPL course includes MCC training with our certified ALX A320 simulator.

For students who are not from Málaga and need accommodation during the course, the school offers advisory services to help students find accommodation.

Besides, we offer accommodation at the university campus for our pilot students on the Commercial Pilot and Airline Transport Pilot courses. Our students have the option to enjoy one of the best university campus in Málaga, including accommodation and full board.

Accommodation and transport costs. One Air’s CPL course includes all the materials, uniforms, etc. needed to complete the course.

Currently, the aviation sector is experiencing rapid expansion and, as forecasts improve, it is a great time to be a pilot. You can see the full report at https://www.grupooneair.com/commercial-aviation/.

Safety is our main priority, and that is why our daily activity is largely dictated by the weather. Fortunately we mainly operate at the Málaga International Airport, as well as in Velez-Málaga. Operating from the Southern Spain allows us to fly all year long. We make the most of the days with bad weather by offering our students simulator sessions as much as possible. This way we manage to stick to the training period established for the duration of the course.

You must be at least 18 years old to be able to start the CPL course.

Since 2008, it is mandatory for every professional pilot to speak English at ICAO Level 4 Language Proficiency, at least. One Air Aviation Group is authorised to officially certify this requirement.

No. The success rate among our graduates is very high – almost 100%. Most of the concepts are new to students and studying this course requires commitment, but with interest and motivation, you can pursue your dreams.

If you want more information about our employment guarantee scheme, don’t hesitate to book an appointment and one of our aviation consultants will be happy to explain what you need to do to apply.
