Are you planning on applying to an European airline?

If you don't have an EASA license, you will need a conversion.

Different spaces of aviation are regulated by distinct authorities or organizations.

As you should know, ICAO and EASA have slightly different rules.

If you are interested in a conversion from ICAO to an EASA license, we can help.

After a preliminary study of your case, our team we will search the best solution for you.

Everything you need to complete your conversion can be found on this page. Contact us if you have any questions.

Be prepared to fly!


We can provide conversions from ICAO/FAA to EASA, it all depends on how much support you will need from us.

First of all, we need to know what type of license you actually have: ATPL / CPL

Second, IFA takes very seriously the training it provides as well as the success of our students on their exams and final objectives, meaning that as an ATO we need to control training quality and student’s knowledge before we propose them for the exams.
