The FIRST STEP towards a professional pilot career


Sheraton Roma Hotel & Conference Center

The pilot training journey

Training to be a pilot is a unique learning experience, which is character-building, complex, and challenging. The training demands high levels of self-discipline and determination, across a variety of physiological and practical skill-sets. But success will reward those who meet the required high standards, with a well-respected, exciting and fulfilling career.

Ask any professional pilot and they will tell you… despite the early morning starts in the depths of winter, delayed flight schedules and irregular work patterns, they would not change their career for any other.

By visiting this website you could have already made the first step to becoming a pilot. Take the next step and book your tickets now. Make it part of your checklist!

So you want to become a pilot… is your English good enough?

A good knowledge of English is essential both to approach the ATPL course and to approach a job interview at any airline. The level of English that you reach at the end of your studies in Italian college is rarely enough. What can you do to prepare yourself for the better? Regardless of the technical skills of a good pilot, it is often the knowledge of the English language that makes the difference between a great career as an Airline Pilot and a career that never started…
