Integrated Flight Plan

The main purpose is to limit the risk of failure during training, and to make sure that candidates have sufficient knowledge, skills and aptitudes to start an airline pilot course. The candidate will have to go through the COMPASS TEST and de CPP test.

The Compass test consists of six tests which have been developped to control some of the key aptitude areas for the pilot profession.

The test will include the following exercices :

CONTROL: A compensation Task at basic hand/foot/eye coordination
SLALOM: A tracking task looking at hand/eye co-ordination.
MATHEMATICS: A test of basic applied mathematical
MEMORY: Accuracy of short-term memory recall and ability to ‘chunk’ information.
TASK MANAGER: A test of the candidate’s ability to scan the screen and manage two concurrent tasks accurately and quickly.
ORIENTATION: Instrument interpretation, comprehension and spatial orientation.
TECH-TEST: Technical comprehension test (physics test)
AVIATION ENGLISH: Test English language ability, including recognizing ATC sound messages
VERBAL REASONING: The ability of the candidate to understand, analyze and logically interpret written information.

CPP test Psychometric tests are a standard scientific method used to measure an individual’s mental capacity or behavioral style. In addition to the COMPASS tests, candidates will also have to pass a personality test called the CPP (Checklist Professional Profile), which can be described as a psychological instrument, to play a crucial role in the selection and training of (ab-initio) pilots. More specifically, the test can be characterized as a – tailor made – personality questionnaire that measures relevant personality traits to assess the competences, as mentioned above, for the function of a (ab initio) pilot. Upon completion of the selection tests and after analysis of the results, you will know if you have been selected or not.

Flying experience is not required to perform well in the test.

The ATPL ground courses are the intensive 8 month theoritical courses to become a professional pilot. 14 subjects will be covered during this period.
We provide you with the culture and knowledge required in all the areas that an airline pilot has to deal with.

✈ Brush-up courses in maths & physics
✈ 768 hours of ATPL ground courses
✈ Official written exams at the BCAA
✈ 6 hours of Long Briefing
✈ 2 hours of simulator
✈ Observation flights

BELGIUM

This phase of the integrated program gathers the private pilot license and the time building which consists in a certain amount of flight hours in order to start the Multi Engine, Instrument Rating and Commercial Pilot License modules.

✈ 28 hours of long briefings
✈ 47 hours of dual flight on C150
✈ 11 hours of solo flight on C150
✈ Night Rating
✈ 35 hours of solo flight (structured time building) on C150
✈ Final EASA 2 hours skill test

USA

Thanks to our partnership with FlightSafety in Florida, our students can choose to do the private pilot part of the Basic Flight training in the US. This option has great advantages because of the weather conditions, an access to different airspaces and nonetheless an excellent English practice. At the end, the student will pass the FAA skill test.

✈ 18 hours of ground courses + FAA PPL written test
✈ 28 hours of long briefings
✈ 47 hours of dual flight on Piper Cadet
✈ 11 hours of solo flight on Piper Cadet
✈ Night Rating
✈ FAA PPL 2 hours Skill Tests
✈ 35 hours of solo flight (structured time building) on Piper Warrior
✈ Final EASA progress check

This phase is probably the most challenging part of the complete Integrated program and the goal is to provide candidates with the tech- niques, methods, philosophy and procedures used by professional pilots. Can- didates will now y on an airplane which is heavier, faster, more complex and redundant, requiring much more anticipation and situation awareness.
Candidates will then learn how to fly from takeoff to landing with sole reference to the instruments in the cockpit, in all kind of weather conditions.
By increasing the quality and precision of flight manoeuvres, candidates will learn how to act and react against specific situations and specific request.✈ 20 hours of long briefings
✈ 50 hours of ME simulator (Instrument Rating)
✈ 25 hours of dual flight (Instrument Rating) on DA42
✈ 20 hours of SPIC* flight (IFR cross country) on DA42
✈ Final CPL/IR/ME Skill Test

*SPIC: Student Pilot In Command (= flight with a flight instructor who acts as a safety pilot)

Finally, candidates will end up the program with the Multi Crew Coordination course. So far, they have learned how to fly an aeroplane on their own, in different situations and conditions.The purpose of the MCC course is to learn how to work in a multi crew environment. In today’s flight decks, there are always at least two pilots, working together to ensure the good and safe conduct of the flight. Modern jets have become extremely complex and powerful; therefore, it is extremely important to work as a team to fulfill all the tasks related to the flight management.

✈ 25 hours ground course
✈ 20 hours A320 simulator
