Modular CPL(H) programme pathway

Are you dreaming about the facinating helicopter pilot‘s career? In order to master a helicopter professionally you will need a propper training for a commercial pilot licence. The CPL(H) training course is designed for those who are willing to divide their studies into modules and acquire licences as they go. A Private Pilot Licence (PPL(H)) comes first and then you proceed with additional modules needed for a commercial pilot licence. Once you have finished with the training and passed all the exams you are ready to apply for a job!

In order to start a modular CPL(H) training course you have to pass an assessment consisting of Profile XT (personality assessment), Compass (aptitude assessment), English test and Structural interview.

The training takes up to 24 months, the actual duration depends on your performance and ability to pass CAA exams on time. You will do 155 hours of 9 PPL(H) and 350 hours of 13 CPL(H) theory subjects under EASA standards within approximately 6 months. The practical part of the training on a single-engine helicopter consists of 190 hours in total: 185 hours of VFR (Visual Flight Rules) and 5 hours of VFRN (Night Visual Flight Rules) flights.

Happy Customers

Being a part of BAA Training is a great experience! I appreciate the quality of the instructors and facilities. Also it is so good to be sure that I can always count on the help of the staff. Moreover, I like the way the airline is checking our progression which is quite promising for the future. They truly care about their cadets!

Arthur Biberian ,
SmartLynx Cadet

Instructors at BAA Training are professionals sharing the best experience and knowledge with students, indeed. The staff is also very friendly and ready to help handle any issue. I would really recommend BAA Training for future pilots willing to have the best and up-to-date knowledge as well as experience for their next step carrier.

Tomas Miežis,
ATPL theory student

By combining pilot training with bachelor studies, you gain double advantage. With this study program you not only get pilot license, but bachelor degree as well, which will be a huge advantage on your CV not mentioning your professional experience.

Marians Purmalis,
Aviation Management student

Regarding the training programme with BAA Training I'm really happy about the idea to have our flying season in the summer right after the theory course and before the other theory course in autumn starts. It allows us to have a "break" and flying reminds us why we are doing the training. Even though the theory is the hard part of a pilot training, I still really liked to do it at BAA Training, mainly because our ground instructors did their best to make the theory easier by being really patient and available whenever we need them.

Marvin Germaini,
Wizz Air Cadet

Wizz Air Cadet training programme is prepared by professionals and adjusted to let us start our job of dream as fast as possible. The schedule is tight but this is necessary to complete the training within the given time. The instructors are experienced people with passion for flying. The way they share their knowledge with us made our way of becoming professional pilots much easier

Łukasz Laskowski,
Wizz Air Cadet

I chose the Integrated ATPL, because it's effective - I was able to finish it in just over 1,5 years. I found all the instructors to be very helpful and they really put energy and time into teaching both the theory and the flying part.

Per Ljung,
Boeing 737 Pilot

From the very beginning I knew that being an instructor requires special skills, knowledge and patience that were a challenge for me. Although the Flight Instructor course lasted only a few weeks, I found the professional guidance and training on all fronts. This allowed to pass the knowledge and skills to the new generation of future airline pilots.

Abdelrahman Mowafi ,
Flight Instructor at BAA Training

During my flying season I had an opportunity to fly with many instructors, learn from their different experience, which shared with me. So in the end I could say that I managed to become a cadet pilot only with BAA Training instructors’ help.

Marija Vaiciulionyte ,
Student at BAA Training

Not only BAA Training is growing fast, but it also cares about every single student! Flight instructors and examiners are really friendly and have great experience. Also, they speak fluent English or even other languages.

Dovydas Valadkevicius,
Student at BAA Training

Sincere thanks to all my instructors, managers and everyone else supporting me throughout my training. I wish the best of luck to all my colleagues and the future students joining the dream maker (aka BAA Training).
