In-flight training

CESDA has a modern fleet of aircraft suitable for the different phases of flight, to provide appropriate instruction for its in-flight training subjects. The training is complemented with FNPT II and MCC flight simulators (Airbus A320).

  • On the Flight training I course, students fly single-engine aircraft (SE) under visual flight rules (VFR).
  • On the Flight training II course, they move on to real and simulated single-engine and multi-engine (ME) flights under instrument flight rules (IFR).
  • On the Flight training III course, students perform real and simulated commercial operations based on multi-engine aircraft.

When they have completed their studies, students will have flown a total of 285 flight hours, of which

  • 170 are real flights, 
  • 55 hours are in a basic simulator and 
  • 60 hours are in a Multi Crew Coordination Airbus A320 simulator (MCC).

This flight training is divided into three annual subjects throughout the degree and provides training fully adapted to the demands of airline companies and especially to airlines that hire young recent graduates.
