Pilatus PC6 class rating

Description du programme

The class rating course enables pilots to extend their competency to a new class of aircraft and to gain access to new professions such as parachuting and aerial photography and cargo transport. The Pilatus PC6 can be used in many roles and is used by many operators around the world.

The holder of a Pilatus PC6 class rating enables the pilot to act as pilot in command on the Pilatus PC6 (FCL.705). The objective of the PC6 rating is familiarisation and mastery of the aircraft in all situations. The Pilatus PC6 requires experience with tail wheel aircraft types and is a demanding aircraft needing regular and recent training.

Course entry requirements

The Pilatus PC6 is a single pilot single engine high performance aircraft (FCL.720.A). Candidates must have:

  • A valid PPL(A) or CPL(A),
  • A class 1 or 2 medical certificate,
  • At least 200 flight hours of which at least 70 as pilot in command,
  • Have a tail wheel TW rating, and
  • Aged 18 or over

Detailed course description

The course is run over one week and comprises:

  • The ground school classes for the technical knowledge required to operate a single pilot single engine high performance aircraft.es.
  • 4 hours 45 minutes of practical flight training with instructor in VMC.

An initial skill assessment using a CAP10 aerobatics aircraft is a pre requisite for the course in order to verify tail wheel competency on take-off and landing.

Diplômes et examens

The PC6 class rating is validated by an approved  flight examiner during a practical skill test. The licence can then be endorsed with a Pilatus PC6 rating.

Integrated CPL IR ME airline pilot course

Course description

The objective of the integrated airline pilot course is to train an ab initio pilot to obtain the comptency required to become a 1st officer on multi-crew  commercial transport aircraft of greater than 5.7 tonnes or as a pilot in command on a single pilot commercial aircraft.

This training begins with the airline pilot theory (ATPL) course and continues with basic practical flight training on a single engine aircraft, followed by advanced training on twin engine aircraft and simulators. Throughout the ground and flight training courses the student will acquire the know-how and interpersonal skills required for an airline pilot career. The future pilot will encounter diverse technical and meteorological situations requiring decision making skills and building real life experiences.

The level of aviation flight safety requires attention and vigilance at all times from everyone. This high level is acquired through in depth training and the correct application of procedures.

Flight Instructor FI (A)

Course description

The objective of the aircraft flight instructor course is to learn the teaching techniques required for flight training. It also leads the candidate to analyse basic flying skills, develop classroom briefings and to organise and present a flight lesson.

The privileges of an FI(A) instructor rating (notwithstanding the restrictions in FCL.910.FI), enable the holder to carry out flight instruction for the issue, revalidation or renewal of:
  1. a PPL and  LAPL for the appropriate category of aircraft,
  2. class and type ratings for single pilot, single engine aircraft with the exception of complex high performance single pilot aircraft,
  3. a CPL for the appropriate category of aircraft as long as the instructor has at least 500 flight hours on the aircraft type and at least 200 hours of flight instruction experience,
  4. a night rating if the instructor has:
    1. a night rating for the catergory of aircraft;
    2. demonstrated his ability to carry out night instruction to a qualified flight instructor and
    3. has the required experience for night flight according to FCL.060, paragraph b) 2) of EU 1178/2011 regulations;
e.  a glider towing rating or aerobatics as long as the FI already has these privileges and has demonstrated his ability to instruct these ratings to a qualified flight instructor.



This training can be carried out on:

  • DA40 - tricycle landing gear,
  • CAP10 - tail wheel aircraft
  • Fully equipped classrooms
  • Briefing rooms
  • Large flight preparation rooms

Course entry conditions
