ATPL or Frozen ATPL?
The ATPL theory is even more comprehensive than for CPL. There is an extra subject and the exams are longer and more in-depth. When you have your ATPL theory certificateand the practical training for CPL with ME and IR, you get a "Frozen ATPL".
All of these certificates and ratings you can get at Rotor & Wings.
Your education is now finished and you can apply for a job at a large company.
To transfer from a Frozen ATPL-H to a normal ATPL-H you need to build some experience.As a helicopter pilot this means you need:
- 1000 hrs total time on helicopters, of which:
- 350 hrs Multi Pilot
- 250 hrs Pilot in Command
- 200 hrs Cross Country
- 100 hrs Night Flying
- 30 hrs Instrument Flight
Basically this means that you can only get a fully operable Airline Transport License, when you work at a larger company.
For ATPL you need an Instrument Rating.
but you can also get this with your PPL or CPL
