Airline transport pilot licence -Flight experience
- Permit or other obligation
- Public service
An airline transport pilot licence (ATPL) gives its holder the right to act as pilot-in-command on multi-pilot aircraft in commercial air transport by either aeroplane (A) or helicopter (H). This means that pilots-in-command on commercial air transport hold an ATPL.
You cannot apply for an airline transport pilot licence solely on the basis of training. You are also required to have experience of multi-pilot aeroplanes and more total flight experience. The ATPL is usually applied for by the airline in whose service the commercial pilot licence (CPL) holder has gained a sufficient number of flying hours to meet the requirements.
To whom and on what terms
The service is free of charge.
