Come fly with us

Since October 1, 2019, the Institute of International Air Transport at the College of International and Public Relations Prague (VŠMVVP) opens licensed courses for those interested in pilot training.

The courses are designed for enthusiasts who want to obtain a pilot license and fly privately, as well as those interested in a professional pilot career. The Private Pilot License (PPL) training is primarily intended for private pilots; commercial pilots can only finish their training by receiving an Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL). The courses are organized in cooperation with the Czech Aviation Flying Centre (CA FC). The theoretical training will take place in the premises of VŠMVVP and at CA FC – at the airport in Mladá Boleslav. Students will also receive the practical training in this latter premise.

Conditions for completing the courses:

  • Minimum age of 18
  • Education completed at least by High School graduation
  • Health examinations
  • Knowledge of the English language

The training from the very beginning to the ATPL takes approximately 12-18 months, depending on the time and ability of the students. It is entirely up to the students to what stage of training they want to advance.

What can students expect during training?
