How to become an Airline Pilot in Spain?

Want to become a pilot but don't know where to start?

I understand you, I was the same as you at this moment, you start looking on the internet, you read and read, but it’s very confusing, because nowhere do they explain clearly how you can be a pilot.

I’m going to tell you everything even what many schools don’t want you to know, I’m going to tell you the types of Pilot Licences and the two/three ways you can become a professional pilot.
In this article I share with you everything you need to know to become an Airline Pilot in Spain:

I am also going to share with you how I did it, I will tell you that it was the least known way among those who want to be pilots, unless they have some acquaintance in this professional world.

Let’s get down to business,

How to become an Airline Pilot in Spain

Different ways to become a pilot, types of licences and different ways to achieve them.

First of all, answer yourself this: Why do you want to be a Pilot? What is your goal?

  • RECREATIONAL: To fly for pure pleasure, with no expectation to dedicate yourself professionally to it.
  • PROFESSIONAL: If being a pilot is your dream, you want to get paid to fly while watching the best sunsets in the world.

Depending on the purpose and objective you are pursuing, you can become a Pilot through 3 Licences:

You want to be a Recreational Pilot

You have 2 types of Recreational Pilot Licences: LAPL (A) and PPL (A), I will tell you more about them.

LAPL (A) LIGHT AIRCRAFT LICENCE : You can fly aircrafts up to 2000 kg.

The training consists of 9 theoretical subjects (the same as for the PPL(A) licence + Minimum of 30 hours of flying of which at least 6 must be flying only as PIC before taking the practical examination.

I recommend it for people who are crystal clear that they do not want to fly planes like PPL (A) and do not aspire to be COMMERCIAL PILOTS.

More than 80% of the people who take this licence decide to continue their training to obtain the Private Pilot Licence PPL (A), they only have to complete the flight hours until they reach the minimum of 45 hours of flight time.

My recommendation is that you start directly with the PPL (A ), because you will save time, money and you will also be able to fly “a bit bigger and heavier” aircraft.

PRIVATE PILOT LICENCE AEROPLANE PPL (A) :

This is the licence for those who want to become a pilot to fly at their own pace, in their free time. in European airspace, aircraft up to 5700 kg, you can carry passengers-family-friends but do not receive any financial compensation, this licence does not entitle you to fly commercial flights.

The training consists of 9 theoretical subjects including meteorology, navigation and principles of flight + a minimum of 45 hours of flying of which at least 10 must be “flying SOLO” before taking the practical exam.

This means that if you have the PPL (A) and you want to continue training to become a commercial pilot, you can, because you have 1 of the 6 training modules necessary to achieve the Commercial Pilot Licence CPL (A).

Do you want to be a professional pilot

To become a Commercial or Professional Aircraft Pilot, you must hold a Commercial Pilot Licence CPL (A).

You can get it in 3 ways:

  • Doing a 4-year university degree.
  • 3 years of training at a pilot school.
  • To obtain the Commercial Pilot Licence CPL (A) in 2 years and a half.

I will share with you in more detail the advantages and disadvantages of each of these options, but first, let’s start with the basics: what is a Commercial Pilot Licence?

COMMERCIAL PILOT LICENCE CPL (A):

This is the licence for those who want to feel like the “Cicerones” of the sky, people who want to BE Pilots and dedicate themselves professionally to it.
You can fly passenger and cargo aircraft throughout European airspace, you can fly all over the world flying European / EASA registered aircraft and of course you receive financial remuneration.

Where can I train as a professional pilot?

To become a commercial airline pilot, you can study at two official organisations:

At Pilot Schools authorised by the State Aviation Safety Agency (AESA) and at the University with the “Degree in Commercial Aviation Pilot and Air Operations”.

UNIVERSITY I UNIVERSITY DEGREE I DURATION : 4 years

The “University Degree in Commercial Aviation Pilot and Air Operations” trains you to work as a commercial pilot, flight engineer or air operations manager. And if you aspire to work as an air traffic controller or engineer in AESA (Spanish Aviation Safety Agency), you have to prepare for a competitive examination after finishing the degree.

The degree is studied at two public universities, the University of Salamanca and the University of Rovira i Virgili in Tarragona.

Advantage: apart from being a pilot, you can choose other job options in aviation. Disadvantages: training is longer and if flying is your thing rather than sitting in an office, it can be a long and arduous job.

Disadvantages: training is longer and if flying is your thing rather than sitting in an office, it can be a long and arduous job.

Training at the PILOT SCHOOL I Authorised by the Spanish Aviation Safety Agency (AESA) I DURATION: 2 - 3 years

This is the most common option for those who clearly want to become pilots and want to fly as soon as possible.

In pilot schools there are 2 ways or routes to study the profession of Commercial Pilot:

“INTEGRATED” training,
and
The “MODULAR” training This is the one I recommend, below you will understand why.

Commercial Pilot Licence CPL (A) - Integrated Training

DURATION: 36 months approx.

The Integrated Commercial Pilot Training is the training route that is studied full time to achieve the Commercial Pilot Licence CPL (A).

The schools that offer integrated training have a school-like structure, you pay and attend classes in the established timetable along with the rest of the applicants.

After 3 years of school and once you have passed all the theoretical and practical tests, you leave with your commercial pilot licence but in the duration of your training, you do not obtain any intermediate licence, such as the Private Pilot Licence PPL (A), which would allow you to fly for pleasure with accompanying friends or family. In full training, until you achieve your CPL (A) Commercial Pilot Licence, you cannot fly on your own.

In “integrated training” you have fewer hours of actual flight time than in “modular training”, which I will explain below.

Commercial Pilot Licence CPL (A) - MODULAR Training

DURATION: 30 months approx.

The Modular Commercial Pilot Training is the part-time or full-time (your choice) training pathway to obtain your CPL (A) Commercial Pilot Licence organised in separate training modules.

In contrast to the Integrated Training (college type), the “Modular Training” is organised in 6 independent modules which must be completed in order and which in the case of some modules can even be done at the same time.

The first module is the Private Pilot Licence PPL (A), which, as explained above, will allow you to start flying recreationally long before you finish your commercial pilot training.

You will have to pass each of the 6 modules or ratings, until you obtain the Commercial Pilot Licence CPL (A) and the Airline Pilot Standards Multi Crew Cooperation APS (MCC) course that airlines will surely require you to enter their selection processes.

Integrated Training vs. Modular Training: Advantages and Disadvantages

Advantages of Integrated Training CPL (A):

  1. If you like the school-like structure, you have a “physical campus” environment to go to every day with other students.
  2. You make a decision once, sign a contract, pay and stay in the same school for as many years as it takes you to pass your training. If you are happy with your school it’s ok, but if you are not happy with your school, you will have a problem, because the contract ties you until you finish your training (choose if this is a pro or a con for you).

Disadvantages of Integrated Training CPL (A):

  1. INTEGRATED is the most expensive training route, the fees are usually very high and not very flexible. The cost of the CPL (A) licence with integrated training ranges from €80,000 – €150,000, depending on the school.
    ⚠️ You can get your COMMERCIAL PILOT LICENSE by the MODULAR route, with between 20% and 40% lower cost. Read on and I’ll tell you about it later.
  2. The school is the one that sets the pace of the time in which you are going to get your commercial pilot’s licence, of course, you will have to study and do your part but the school has a promotion in which all the students go at the same pace and it is the school that sets the flight timings so that the whole promotion goes at the same pace, this facilitates the internal management.
  3. Promotions tend to be large, with more than 20 people/students, which means that attention and personalisation in teaching is often lost.
  4. Theoretical training is usually given in the form of a lecture with a fixed timetable.
  5. The training includes less flight hours. You will leave with 35 hours less in your Logbook***(this is the official document required by the authority which is your logbook and which will accompany you in the record of your professional life as a pilot in which you must record all your flights, take-offs, landings since you start flying as a student) than those who decided to get their Commercial Pilot Licence through the modular route. Remember that airlines value the number of flight hours, the more the better.
  6. You will have to live close to the school and study full-time, making it difficult to combine your professional and family life.
  7. If you and the school stop making a match, you will have to live together until the CPL(A) pass separates you.
  8. You will not be able to fly for pleasure with accompanying friends or family until you obtain your CPL (A) Commercial Pilot Licence,

Advantages of CPL Modular Training (A)

  1. The cost is lower, according to the school the cost of the CPL (A) Licence with Modular Training is between 60.000 € – 80.000 €, and you pay it little by little, per module, “pay as you learn-fly”.
  2. More profitable, you achieve your CPL (A) Commercial Pilot Licence with more hours of real flight and investing less money than if you had chosen the integrated training.
  3. Modular training offers you the option of becoming a pilot in less time, YOU SET THE PACE of your learning, faster or slower depending on your personal needs (full-time or part-time dedication).
  4. CONSIDERING the financial outlay involved in training for this profession, it is good to be able to pull back in time. Either because being a pilot is not for you, or because school is not going well for you, or because life is inviting you to take a break.
  5. Greater adaptability and greater optimisation of your time, energy and economy needs.
  6. Same, if not more, employability opportunities.

Disadvantages of CPL Modular Training (A):

For those who live by constant complaining, the law of minimum effort and are used to having someone else solve their life, everything is a disadvantage.

For people who value their time, energy, resources and learn to pull their own chestnuts out of the fire, there are only advantages.

If you are one of us,

This is your FLIGHT ROUTE to become a PULSE Pilot, or in other words a HIGH PERFORMANCE Pilot

And to conclude, I’m sure this question will come up for you,

What airlines prefer integrated training pilots or modular training pilots? Which training increases my chances of employment?

There are schools that sell integrated training with their own airline cadet programme (partnership agreement between the school and the airline with a job vacancy). This
guarantees you (but does not exclude you) that when you finish your training, you will be able to apply for the job vacancies that the airline will open.

However, nowadays more and more airlines prefer pilots trained through the modular training route, because they tend to be more motivated and mature than “the integrated” and have a high level of skills/social skills that they have acquired in their life experiences, beyond theory and school instruction.

So which option to choose?

Which option is better: Modular, Integrated Commercial Pilot Training or University Degree?

If you’ve come this far, you’re probably already clear on how to become an airline pilot and you’re starting to draw your own conclusions.

Taking into account the significant financial investment, time and vital energy that you are going to put in, it is extremely important that you choose the option that best suits your current circumstances, your future plans, your needs and tastes so that you can proudly enjoy this unique stage in your life and successfully achieve your Pilot’s Licence.

Our recommendation: at Pulse we are committed to the Professional Pilot Modular Training to achieve your CPL (A) Commercial Licence, why, easy:

We want to help you, but it is up to you to choose whether our help is useful or not.

Now, yes, we are finishing,

Very few people are aware of the existence of “Modular Training” and its advantages, probably only those who have acquaintances in the aviation industry and who have been trained in this way.

This is not the typical information you find when you search the internet for how to become a pilot.

This option is the least known because in general schools prefer to sell integrated training, it gives more economic benefit and less management work than modular training.

This information is neither unique nor exclusive, but until now it has been available only to a select few.

And I, as an Air Examiner, Senior Instructor and Commercial Pilot trained with Modular Training, want you to have the opportunity to do the same.

Do you have any further questions?
I share with you more answers:

You can start studying the theory at the age of 17 (with parental/guardian authorisation) and having passed the Compulsory Secondary Education (Educación Secundaria Obligatoria).

To start studying the practical flying phase you must be at least 18 years old.

In addition you have to pass the aeronautical medical examination called class II to have the Private Pilot Licence PPL (A) and for the Commercial Pilot Licence CPL (A) you need to pass the class I aeronautical medical examination.

Accredit an ICAO level of English 4,5 or 6.

There are no regulatory height or weight requirements to become an airline pilot, but you may be able to find a school or airline that has its own requirements.

Our recommendation, if you have a good level of English, is once you have achieved your PPL (A). If you feel you need to improve your English, you can do so while studying ATPL (A) theory and doing the Time Building. ICAO English level 4 is the minimum level of English required to start the Instrument Rating (IR) module and to be employed by an airline at level 5 or 6?

Safety is the Queen, everything in flight is focused on absolute safety, both for the passengers, the crew and the aircraft. It is a very technical team job, where quality human relations are essential. Although it is a vocational profession, one must be clear that it is a demanding and intense path, in which a high dose of enthusiasm is required and it is very important to have a strong psychological stability.
