The airline transport pilot licence, or

ATPL, is the certificate which permits

the holder to act as the PIC on airliners.

In order to obtain the ATPL licence it

is necessary to first achieve the fol-

lowing:

• Private Pilot Licence (PPL)

• Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL)

• Single Engine Piston (SEP): licence

to pilot single engine piston aircrafts

• Multi Engine Piston (MEP): Licence

to pilot multiengine piston aircrafts

• Multi Crew Coordination (MCC):

mandatory course to fly onboard of

multi crew aircrafts

• Instrument Rating (IR): qualification

to fly following the instrumental

flight rules (IFR)

It is furthermore required to pass the

theoretical exams held at the ENAC

offices in Rome or Milan.

To be eligible for the exams it is

mandatory to attend a theoretical

course of 650 hours with frontal les-

sons, or alternatively, to attend a dis-

tance learning course which includes

500 hours distance learning and 150

hours frontal lessons in class.

After achieving the ATPL it will be

possible to take part in a Type Rating

course that consists of the specializa-

tion on a specific aircraft (to do this it

is necessary to have the ATPL – the

Type Rating is not included in the cost

of the ATPL).
