ATP bridging course (for CPL Holder)
If you already hold a CPL licence and your aim is to operate as an airline Captain one day, the ATP Bridging Course is your next milestone to complete. It is a theoretical course approved by CAAV that allows the respective license holders to master the ATPL theory and get a certificate to apply for the ATPL exam.
The ATP Bridging Course, as the name itself hints, will bridge the transition from your current licence to a full ATPL lincence you will obtain at some point. However, you should cover the necessary theoretical content at this stage and get eligible to take the ATPL exam and receive a frozen ATPL (A). Next, once you pass the exam successfully and log a total of 1500 flying hours, you will be able to unfreeze your ATPL (A) and eventually take a Captain’s seat in the airline’s aircraft

Area 100 KSA
*Area 100 KSA (Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes) is a new subject in theoretical pilot training. It follows a competency-based training and assessment (CBTA) philosophy and is often referred to as a “paradigm shift” that modernizes flight crew training.
Area 100 KSA, which is the only non-graded subject, aims to develop and access student pilots’ specific behavioral competencies besides the technical ones. The competencies based on ICAO core principles are the following: communication, leadership and teamwork, problem-solving and decision-making, situation awareness, workload management, and application of knowledge.
This subject utilizes best practices to meet airlines’ needs and develop a “thinking“ pilot mindset, help them operate the aircraft safely.
