FAQs

FAQs for Airline Pilot Training

Why do you use a simulator for IFR training?2018-07-15T17:32:01+00:00

For the Instrument Rating (IR) it is a legal requirement to also train on a flight simulator. This not only reduces the overall costs for you as a student pilot, it also increases the quality of your flight training as a simulator allows us to train emergency situations, which would be too dangerous to practice on the aircraft (e.g. engine failure after take-off). Also the instructor has the possibility to freeze the simulator at any time during flight in order to discuss things relevant to a specific situation. Our FNPT II is based on a DA42, so there is no difference to the real aircraft you will use during training flights.

Is it possible that I might need more hours of flight training than the legally required minimum?2018-07-15T17:42:31+00:00

Our experience shows that for most students the legally required minimum hours are sufficient. However, this requires a professional attitude of you as a student pilot (e.g. proper preparation for every flight lesson) as well as continuous flight training. Bigger gaps between flights should be avoided.

Is it possible to write off the training costs against income tax?2018-07-15T17:22:16+00:00

This depends on the tax rules and regulations of your country of residence. In Austria for example this is possible if either:

• The income of your current job is endangered or

• Your career opportunities will improve which means your expected salary as a pilot will be higher compared to the salary of your current job.

Who pays for damages that might occure during training flights?2018-08-04T12:21:13+00:00

There are two possibilities concerning responsibility during training flights:

1) Training flights together with an instructor (dual-flights)

2) Training flights where you as a student pilot fly by yourself (solo-flights)

For the majority of your flight training you will fly together with an instructor who will then be the pilot in command. In such case the instructor resp. our company will be responsible for any damages which might occur.

During your training for the private pilot license you will also enjoy 10 hours of solo flights after you have completed 18 hours of dual flights. Authorization of such solo flights will only be given after a second flight instructor has convinced himself that you are ready to fly alone (four-eyes principle).

Should you cause any damage during solo-flights the maximum cost you will have to pay as a student will be EUR 1,250 provided the damage has not been caused intentionally or through gross negligence.

Why are all the costs published in such a detailed way?2018-07-15T16:44:23+00:00

We believe that any potential customer who is trying to make the difficult decision where to spend the huge amount of money for becoming a pilot should be provided with all of the required information to be aware of how much he or she finally will have to pay for the pilot license. Thereby we cannot expect you to recognize by yourself if there are any additional hidden costs by third parties – hence costs which are not charged by the flight school but still arise throughout your pilot training, such as landing fees, fees by the civil aviation authority, examination fees and cost for the medical certificate and for the student pilot license. 

When do I have to pay for my pilot training?2018-07-15T16:15:30+00:00

We do not ask for any payments in advance – you only pay as you consume.

Why do you operate at an airport and not at a small airfield?2018-07-15T16:12:08+00:00

At an airport you will learn professional flying from the very beginning by “growing up” in an environment you will work in later on. Also there are several operational advantages:

• Daily operation from 0600 until 2330 loc

• Permanent and quick snow removal – assurance of continuous full-year operation

• Availability of all of the infrastructure required for IFR flight training (e.g. ILS, radar service)
