How to become a pilot
In fact, we can say that nowadays there are three ways to become an airline pilot. All courses can be combined with training programmes for a specific airline or, except for Multi-crew Pilot Licence (MPL), the applicant can train on their own. The first two, quicker ways, are represented by integrated courses of Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) and MPL. These courses are more time-consuming because of the strict European legislation limits about the length of the course and especially because of the specific requirements of the airline which are applicants trained for. The third option is the way of modular ATPL course. This course is not that time-consuming, if not time limited by the airline, because it is divided into several licenses/qualifications/ratings and thus particularly suitable for busy applicants.
