What conditions do you have to meet?
– To start the PPL training, you must be at least 16 years old. However, you can only take the practical exam from the age of 17.
– A so called ICAO English proficiency check is required if you are not Hungarian citizen.
– Before you start your training program, you will also need to take a medical examination where specialists will determine if you are fit to fly.
Whether you'd like to become a professional pilot or you just want to take to the skies with your family - we are here for you!
What is the process of the training?
At Fly-Coop, we primarily provide modular trainings for our students, meaning each module is a standalone, individual step towards a professional career in aviation. You can complete the modules at your own pace and in a flexible manner, even the theoretical training can be done online.
For integrated ATP training please use the contact form.
The initial training for both aeroplane and helicopter is the Private Pilot Licence, afterwards you can complete the modules almost in any order. Should you require any guidance, here you can see an optional sequence we recommend you follow.
Step 1: PPL Training
The very first step is to obtain a PPL (Private Pilot Licence), which is the foundation of your further trainings. The training starts with a 3-4 months long distance learning course, what you can complete online at your own pace. After the theory part is completed, you can start your (minimum) 45 hours practical training. You can take a theory exam of 9 subjects at the CAA during your flight training, once you have finished the whole training, you will also need to demonstrate your practical skills as part of an exam flight. After this you will be able to start flying on your own. You can take your friends or your family for a stunning aerial tour, or explore the country for yourself. You can even visit foreign airports!
• Entry requirement: Class 2 medical certification
Step 2: Experience
Once you have get your PPL you can start gaining experience, i.e. flight time. This is also important because certain trainings have additional time requirements on top of the basic private pilot licence. Your licence allows you to rent all single-engine piston aircrafts in our fleet. Although, if you want to fly a new, unfamiliar type, you will have to take an in-class retraining, during which you will have to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to operate that type of aircraft.
Step 3: ATPL Theory course
After the PPL training, you may also start an ATPL theory course. The ATPL (Airline Transport Pilot Licence) is required to become a captain on a passenger or cargo aircraft.
You still have a long way ahead you, but most airlines expect you to complete this theory training before hiring. One of the advantages of an ATPL theory is that it acts a theoretical base for your further trainings. In other words, if you have taken an exam in ATPL theory, you don’t need to retake the theory only the practical training part.
• PPL licence
Step 4: NVFR Rating
Once the sun has set, the view of the terrain changes completely. To get used to the new environment, you need to complete a Night VFR training. It consists of a few hours of ground instruction and 5 hours practical training which includes a check flight.
The aim of the training is to familiarize you with the night operations and also to introduce you to the visual illusions and navigational problems you will encounter during night flight.
• PPL licence
Step 5: IR Rating
Once you have your PPL, you can only fly in clear weather, but not yet in fog or clouds. The instrument rating enables you to fly the aircraft solely with reference to the in-cockpit instrumentation. This means you will be able to fly in cloud and other circumstances of reduced visibility.
• PPL licence
• 50 hours of flight time as pilot-in-command (PIC)
• At least ICAO LEVEL 4 professional language exam
Step 6: MEP Rating
During this step you will learn how to handle an aircraft with more than one engine, a multi-engine piston. You will need to complete a course consists of a few hours of classroom preparation and 6 hours of practical flight instruction, culminating in an official examination, testing the knowledge and skills you have acquired.
• PPL license
• 70 hours of flight time as pilot-in-command (PIC)
Step 7: ME-IR Rating
The instrument licence you obtained is valid only for single-engine aeroplanes. To extend your rating to multi-engine types, relying solely on instruments, you will need a five-hour flight instruction in which you will be required to perform instrumental duties on a multi-engine aeroplane.
• Class 2 medical certification
• PPL license, MEP license, IR license
Step 8: CPL Training
If you want to work as a professional pilot, you must obtain a Commercial Pilot Licence. The training consists of 15 or 25 hours of practical flight instruction depending on whether you have an IR rating or not. By the time you complete your training, you will need to have 200 hours of flight time, of which you must complete at least 100 hours on your own, as well as pass all ATPL theoretical subjects.
• Class 1 medical certification
• PPL licence
• 150 hours of total flight time
• 100 hours of flight time as pilot-in-command (PIC)
• NVFR Rating
• 200 hours of total flight time
Step 9: UPRT Training
As a pilot, you need to be prepared for even the most unexpected situations. The Upset Prevention and Recovery Training will teach you how to correctly apply appropriate recovery techniques for unusual situations.
• PPL licence
Step 10: MCC and JOT Training
Don’t worry, there’s not much left! However, the so-called MCC (Multi Crew Cooperation) training is essential for airlines. Since an airliner, without exception, is always operated by more than one pilot, it is necessary to learn the division of tasks and the fast communication between each other. Accompanying the MCC training you will have the Jet Orientation Training as well, during you can dive in the details of the operation of a jet engine. After passing the CPL skill test and completing the above-mentioned trainings, the licence allows you to act as a co-pilot of a multi-crew aircraft.
• CPL licence with ME/IR rating
Step 11: Type training
Most airlines expect you to be eligible to fly the type they use. For complex aircrafts, each type requires special training and an official exam. For instance, if someone is type rated to an Airbus-320, a Boeing-737 can only be flown if the relevant type training and exams are completed.
Step 1: PPL training
This step is a must for a prospective helicopter pilot. It entitles the holder of a PPL (Private Pilot License) to fly as a pilot on that type as a Pilot in Command (PIC). If you complete this training, you can also carry passengers, but you cannot accept financial compensation, so you can only use this permit for private flights. The PPL consists of a theoretical course and a 45-hour
Step 2: Experience
You will need to gain experience to gain additional permissions.
Step 3: NVFR (H) training
After obtaining a PPL, you can only fly in visual flight conditions, from sunrise to sunset. However, if you want to fly in the dark, you will need a night NVFR license. The relevant NVFR training consists of a theoretical course and a 15-hour practical training.
Step 4: CPL training
Do you want to get a job as a pilot at an air ambulance, the police or a news agency?
Then choose our commercial pilot training! After obtaining your CPL, you can start working as a helicopter pilot. CPL training includes a
250-hour theoretical course, 30 hours of flight time, and 5 hours of night flight.
Step 5: Type retraining
Unlike airplanes, each helicopter is a separate type. This means that if someone wants to fly a new type, they have to undergo a relevant type retraining and then take an official exam.
Step 6: Lifting training
When conventional cranes fail, it is time for helicopters to shine! A pilot with a suspended hoist license can be invaluable when installing air conditioners, antennas, or replacing factory chimney filters. Since only a small number of pilots have this licence, completing this training will definitely give you an edge and open up exceptional career opportunities for you.
