Theoretical Training

The Theoretical Knowledge Ground School includes 13 subjects which are defined by EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) and cover the minimum knowledge needed by a professional airline pilot. In addition to these, it includes an additional 14th subject, named AREA 100 KSA, which facilitates the evaluation of the trainees regarding the degree of assimilation of the provided theoretical education.

The duration of the Theoretical Ground School is 6 months and covers 750 hours of classroom instruction by experienced and renowned specialized theoretical instructors. Also in case of unavailability, the trainees are given the opportunity to attend part of the theoretical school online.

The school follows a circular program of theoretical studies, giving to those interested the flexibility to start their training whenever they wish. The theoretical cycle takes place twice a year, with the first semester usually beginning in October and the second in April.

The trainee has the opportunity to start his theoretical training whenever he/she wishes, since in a period of six months he/she will have the opportunity to complete the theoretical course covering all three modules according to the following table:

In case of inability of the trainee to attend the whole theoretical ground school, the academy gives him the option to join another semester or educational period (module) or to attend individual subjects free of charge, upon agreement from the beginning of the registration, or with an additional cost further training can be provided or even repeat the course.

During the lessons and also after the completion of the theoretical school, internal examinations are carried out following the educational system of PAD PILOT and AVIATION EXAM. In addition, evaluations and practical trainings are carried out for the better assimilation of the curriculum, as well as a final evaluation of the trainees for the issuance of the certificate of successful completion of the theoretical training.

Area 100 KSA
During the ground school and before the issuance of the theoretical completion certificate, final evaluations assessments of 100 hours in Area 100 KSA are carried out separately in the following way:

In the context of theoretical knowledge instruction for professional pilot licences, and according to KSA provisions, for the learning objectives (LOs) in topics 100 02 and 100 03 of Area 100 KSA, trainees will go through at least one formative assessment and two summative assessments. They will also be tested in at least one KSA mental maths test.

The summative assessments and the KSA mental maths test will be documented in the student’s training records, while both the summative and the formative assessment(s) will be debriefed. The mental math test must be satisfactorily completed before the student is recommended for their first attempt to take their final theoretical knowledge examination paper at CAA.

Aviation English Test (ELP)
The English Language Proficiency test has been developed to assess the English language proficiency in the specific abilities of speaking and understanding, according to the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) Language Proficiency Rating Scale and the holistic and linguistic descriptors and the requirements set by EASA. FAS Pilot Academy has been an approved English Language Assessment Body for more than 10 years.

Flight Training

The flight training is divided into 7 phases, covering 246 hours on SOCATA TB9, SOCATA TB10, CESSNA 172, PIPER SENECA II and ALSIM ALX FNPT II simulator aircraft as follows:

  • PRE SOLO
  • NAVIGATION
  • SOLO FLIGHT
  • INSTRUMENT FLIGHTS
  • UPRT
  • MULTI ENGINE
  • MCC

In each phase, assessments and examinations are carried out in order to better evaluate the student's educational progress. The purpose is to improve the approach of the learner and provide more effective training, adapted to the performance and characteristics of each student.

Given the fact that each phase of training requires properly qualified and experienced instructors, FAS Pilot Academy flight instructors largely meet the requirements of the Legislation as they come from all parts of aviation such as Hellenic Air force Academy, Commercial Airlines and General Aviation. The experienced instructors of the School are always willing and are characterized for their communicable skills in the field of professional pilot training.

The daily monitoring of the student's training flow and progress during the course, give the maximum improvement to his performance.

Planes that are suitable for every phase and equipped as required provide the best quality training, making the most of the knowledge, means and human resources! In more detail:
