The theory training includes nine subjects covered in approximately 3 months, where the knowledge level is monitored by diagnostics tests during the studies. All subjects are finished off with a school test and an examination.
The practical training consists of 48 flight hours with 11 hours flown solo and is divided in 4 phases:
