Sevenair Academy offers EASA Modular Airline Transport Pilot License for aeroplanes (ATPL(A)) training from its facilities in Cascais (LPCS), Portugal.

EASA Modular ATPL(A) Program

The Modular ATPL(A) course takes aspiring pilots with little or no experience through theoretical knowledge training, single and multi-engine piston aircraft flying, Performance Based Navigation (PBN) and Instruments, Multi-Crew Cooperation (MCC) and Upset Prevention and Recovery (UPRT) to graduate with a frozen ATPL(A) license.

On the successful completion of the course the student graduates with an EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) Commercial Pilot License CPL(A) with Single engine (SEP), Multi Engine (MEP), Instrument (IR), Performance Based Navigation (PBN) and Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) Ratings which allows to start a career as a pilot on commercial passenger or cargo aircraft.
