The Alpha Aviation Group also provides specific aviation license training tailored to the needs of individual cadets, other aviation training facilities and especially its airline partners.
Private Pilot Licenses
A Private Pilot License (PPL), the most basic of flying certifications, allows any holder to fly a private aircraft. The PPL specifically prohibits flying for any commercial capacity and from receiving any remuneration for flight services. In this program, cadets are required to spend 3 weeks studying key theoretical frameworks related to the PPL. Additionally, they must also complete 40 hours of basic flight training in the Cessna 172 glass cockpit and an additional 5 hours in the fixed-wing simulator. Upon completion, cadets must successfully complete a skills test to obtain their license.
Commercial Pilot Licenses
A Commercial Pilot License (CPL) permits the pilot to engage in commercial activity. The CPL typically takes 11 weeks of critical and comprehensive classroom training and includes 140 hours in the Cessna 172 glass cockpit and 5 hours in the fixed-wing simulator. Upon completion of the course requirements, cadets then take a skills test to obtain their license.
Instrument Rating (IR) provides the holder the system of knowledge required to fully control private and commercial aircrafts using only the instruments found in the cockpit. This is a licensing requirement for pilots who wish to fly in the evening or during unfavorable weather conditions. In this course, cadets are required to spend 20 hours on the Cessna’s 172 glass cockpit and an additional 20 hours in the flight simulator. Upon completion, cadets then take a skills test to obtain their IR certification.
