    Your license also can be transferred to any other EASA member state.

    Optionally you can choose your exam location so you will get the certificate of your chosen Country

    A frozen ATPL is an expression referring to the qualifications of a pilot who has passed all 13 ATPL theoretical exams but has not yet met his or her flight requirements. It would become 'un-frozen' when the flight experience requirements are met.

    The ATPL license will remain valid for a period of 3 years from the date of efficiency for issue of the CPL(A) or IR(A) and 7 years from validity date of the IR(A) entered in the CPL(A). Once the ATPL Theory exam has been passed, you have 7 years to complete the process as the Frozen ATPL Certificate is valid for 7 years.

    Minimum study hours in ATPL theory course


    • - for pilots with PPL(A): 650 hours total
    • - for pilots with IR(A): 500 hours total
    • - for pilots with CPL(A): 400 hours total
    • - for pilots with CPL(A) and an IR(A): 250 hours total

    Total duration of the EASA ATPL Theory course inculing exams is typically 5-7 months.

    Any ICAO or EASA PPL license is enough to start the course. No other ratings are required.

    You have 18 months to complete all 13 exams from the first exam taken.

    It depends on which CAA you are taking the exams at. Usually there is no limitation on the number of subject, however the time is limited. At the Hungarian CAA you have 6 hours.

    No, you can obtain it anytime before the skill test.

    Once you accumulate 1500 total flight hours and 500 multi-pilot time, you can take the ATPL skill-test to obtain an ATPL licence without taking any additional theory exams. This is what commonly referred to as "unfreezing the licence". The primary distinction between an ATPL and a CPL licence lies in the authority to serve as a Pilot-in-Command (Captain) in multi-pilot commercial air transport. With a CPL, you can only act as a co-pilot (First Officer).

    Jeg tok mitt pilot sertifikatet (EASA) med pilot instruktør Andrasz og det var en flott erfaring. De tilrettela for at jeg kunne gjennomføre og er veldig glad jeg valgte de. Hvis jeg skulle gå videre med CPL eller ATPL vil jeg velge de igjen.

    I wanted to express my sincere appreciation for the airline assessment preparation course by Easy-Pilot on Full Motion FSTD Simulator. The hands-on experience with the simulator was invaluable, providing a realistic and immersive learning environment. The instructors were knowledgeable and supportive, and the course content was spot-on. I feel more confident and well-prepared for my airline assessment. Thank you for an excellent learning experience!

    Excellent EASA ATPL Theoretical Knowledge provider in Europe. Everything from initial contact and orientation (Cpt. Andras, Bea) to admin (Blanka, Linda) to self learning platform (I used AVEX which was quite enough but there are now other options) & study materials to online classes TKIs (Cpt. Vladimir deserves a special mention) as well as training facilitators (Attila, Greg) were no less than top class. I was also supported with local CAA (Hungary) registration. I passed all 13 exams in 3 sittings at first attempt. Online classes are regularly offered in the weekends, cycling through all subjects and each is followed by check examinations. Attendees are from all over the World. I would definitely recommend Easy-Pilot and look forward to aerobatic training (which they also offer) in near future.
