The APA Integrated course takes students with little or no previous flying experience to a Commercial Pilot’s License (CPL) with a Multi-Engine Instrument Rating (MEIR) referred to as the ‘frozen’ ATPL. The course also includes a Multi Crew Co-operation (MCC) course, which is required to proceed to Type Rating. Once type training has been completed, pilots can be employed as a First Officer with an airline. Graduate pilots with a ‘frozen’ ATPL are free to train to any aircraft type and to fly for any airline that will accept their national license. Most airlines will initially assign new First Officers to “short haul” fleets so they can build experience in the more demanding departure and approach phases of flight. Once an ATPL holder has gained 1,500 hours experience, the ATPL becomes ‘unfrozen’ and they are then eligible to be considered for promotion. The course lasts for approx. 70 weeks.
