IAA ATPL training program certifies pilots to fly passenger aircraft

Iceland Aviation Academy (IAA) offers the ATPL course international airline companies look for when recruiting pilots.

Gaining ATPL training is a major stepping stone in becoming a successful pilot of passenger aircraft. IAA offers an exciting opportunity for certification through its Commercial Pilots Course. The course is taught in accordance with European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part-FCL requirements, following the syllabus provided by the EASA in agreement with pan-European issuing directives for pilot licenses and has been approved by the Icelandic Civil Aviation Administration.

Learning to fly in Iceland is an exhilarating experience on its own and those who graduate the program will have the internationally recognized certification needed to fly modern passenger aircraft.

The conditions for flight training here in Iceland are rather unique. I think that is why many international students have made the decision to come to Iceland for their ATPL studies in recent years. We also have an ‘open sky’ policy here which means no areas are closed off to flight training. This means students can have their practical lessons in challenging, yet incredibly scenic, situations. Not to mention our instructors who are deep wells of knowledge and experience.
