Modular ATPL(A)

Modular ATPL

The Modular ATPL course allows you to obtain an airline transport licence. It differs from the Integrated ATPL course because, as the name implies, it is carried out by independent modules and exams. It has as prerequisite the hold of a PPL license. This allows the person to take the course at his own speed. It can also be at the most convenient investment capacity.
