KSA100 Completion Certificate : KSA Assessments now included in all Residential and DL Courses from 2020



You need to have completed a Private Pilots Licence (PPL) before starting commercial pilot training or have equivalent military experience.  A PPL is not a regulatory requirement for starting ATPL ground school, but this level of flying knowledge and experience is a sensible starting point and so required by Pathway.  A suitable PPL course can be arranged by us if needed - this enables you and us to assess if you are suited to becoming a professional pilot.  You also need to have basic academic qualifications in Maths & Physics and, for non-native speakers, an adequate level of English.  A personal Apple device (iPad or Macbook) is needed to enable you download the iBooks for the course - these are then yours to keep for the rest of your flying career.  A Class 1 Medical Certificate is highly recommended before you embark on the expense of an ATPL.
