Pilot Training Division
The Pilot Training Division of the college has been in existence since the early 1990’s, and has grown steadily in line with the expansion of the aviation industry both globally and in particular in line with the huge growth in the Gulf region. We offer a range of Pilot Training courses.
We have a modern fleet of 10 glass cockpit Piper Archer III aircraft here in Doha and a further 4 glass cockpit Piper Seneca V’s. On our flight line, we have a team of dedicated and highly experienced flight instructors along with a further team of full time ground instructors within our purpose built ground school building.
We are proud to have Qatar Airways as our prime customer, and many of our current cadet pilots are fully sponsored by Qatar Airways.
• Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL)
• Multi-Crew Pilot License (MPL)
• SE and ME Class Rating
• Private Pilot License (PPL)
Our traditional Airline Transport Pilot License course is a 22-month full time Diploma in Aviation Studies program leading to the issue of a QCAA commercial pilot’s license (CPL) with multi-engine instrument rating (IR). Upon gaining flight experience this license is then automatically eligible for upgrade to a QCAA Airline Transport Pilot’s License (ATPL (A)).
In partnership with Qatar Airways, Qatar Aeronautical College is proud to offer the Multi-Crew Pilot Licences (MPL) Course.
MPL is a state of the art ab-initio Airline Pilot training program, seamlessly integrated with an airline type rating, with continuous multi-crew focus. MPL training is dynamic and rather than hours prescriptive, recognizes that flying hours in isolation, and are not a valid measure of competency. MPL training is based on core competencies that are required to operate modern jet transport aeroplanes.
