The ATPL Theory programme is full-time and is delivered over nine months at our base at Brighton City Airport. This means that our ATPL Theory programme is the only one of its kind in the UK. 

The course programme includes an additional computer-based (CBT) learning package, which supports students with self-study. The school day is made shorter so students can retain higher levels of concentration during lessons. They then spend two hours taking advantage of the CBT modules before revising and consolidating for the following day’s lessons. The material is highly, visual and adds an additional dimension to the integrated and modular programmes.

Our team of experienced instructors have identified what they believe is the best structure and stimuli our students need to get the most out of their training. This move to ‘blended learning’ with additional content and time for self-study ensures that there is a style of tuition to suit a range of learners.

- Phil Jones, Head of Training

This course is part of a suite of improvements and investments the school has made to its facilities, resources and fleet. We have recently acquired use of additional Piper PA28 aircraft and are looking forward to the arrival of a new DA42 Simulator.

Few commercial flight schools offer ATPL theory as a classroom-based course, with many offering distance learning/online or a part-time solution. These offer a number of benefits over distance learning; training in a classroom allows students to ask specific questions of the instructor whilst also learning at the same pace of their classmates. There is also the benefit of periodic one to one reviews with an instructor throughout the training, which are the perfect opportunity to reflect on an individual’s performance and share any concerns about upcoming subjects or exams.
