ATPL Modular (A)


Similarly to the integrated pathway, the modular ATPL pathway allows the ATPL (A) Theory (Frozen) to be obtained. The practical part, on the other hand, subdivided into modules, makes it possible to obtain the CPL license with the various ratings, giving the possibility of operating in Italy and abroad as a commander in single-pilot commercial activities and as a co-pilot in multi-pilot commercial activities.
