ATPL Theory

ATPL Theory Virtual, just like a regular ATPL Theory, prepares you for the 13 exams at the CAA and opens the doors to receiving your Type Rating and then getting employed by an airline. However, the virtual theory program allows you to study online via a purposefully dedicated platform. In contrast, a standard training option requires you to temporarily move to where the training center is situated.

Study from anywhere

You can study ATPL theory virtually, regardless of the country you are from. Since there is no requirement to travel anywhere, you can reduce your expenses considerably by not paying for accommodation and living in a foreign country.

EASA standard real-time classes

To make things clear, virtual theory at BAA Training is not the same as „self-study.“ The ground lessons are delivered in real time by professional and well-trained lecturers who fully comply with EASA regulations and standards.

Maintain your study/life balance

Virtual ATPL theory takes only 4 hours of your time per day, unlike in-class learning, which takes 6-8 hours per day. It gives you the flexibility to plan your day, maintain your study/life balance and have sufficient time left for a part-time job, your hobbies, family and friends.

Innovative virtual classroom

The virtual classroom with AI integration offers an immersive and intuitive environment. You can attend classes there, access interactive and regularly updated EASA training materials containing stunning imagery and 3D models, complete progress tests and school examinations, use a discussion board and talk to peers.

Does virtual training entail self-study or instructor-led lessons?

It is instructor-led pilot training via the virtual platform with many collaboration tools that support training in an automated and more scalable format. You can expect high-quality, comprehensive learning under EASA standard programs while being guided by professional instructors. Quality-wise, virtual training is no different from classroom-based sessions. On the contrary, it might captivate learners even more because of the enhanced interactivity it offers.
