SFC conducts the ATPL theory course through either the integrated or non-integrated program. MPL candidates currently undergo the non-integrated program where the successful completion of all 14 subjects is required before pursuing flight training. CPL candidates are given an option of choosing either the integrated or non-integrated program. Selection of the non-integrated program, also known as the accelerated program would see candidates completing some ATPL theory examinations in Singapore while completing the remaining subjects in Perth, Jandakot.
The applicant must possess the competencies expected of a licenced UA Operator at the conclusion of the flight training phase. After passing the evaluation with our certified AFE (Authorised Flight Examiner), the applicant will be eligible to apply for the CAAS UAPL.
