FAA-IFR and CPL courses
Theoretical courses for FAA-IFR and FAA-CPL exams in Paris, France
The theoretical courses are usually given as face-to-face, personalized training session.
They require the candidate to be more or less fluent in aeronautical English.
The entire program is covered in five consecutive days or spread over two weeks (can be reduced to four or three days regarding a previous IFR experience).
The FAA theoretical exams can be taken in Farnborough, England or in the USA.
As an American and European instructor, the courses are designed with the aim of flying in both Europe and USA.
Practical training courses for FAA-IFR and FAA-CPL exams
The practical training and even the checkride are cheaper — and perhaps more rewarding — in the United States than in Europe.
It could be more convenient to stay in France; I am authorized by the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) to provide simulator and flight training to non-American candidates (the candidates must also be authorized by the TSA).
The theoretical part of the practical training and the simulator sessions take place in Paris, France.
Our flights depart from Toussus-le-Noble or Pontoise (IFR airports close to Paris).
About the FAA licences and qualifications…
The flights are prepared following the American regulation in order to pass the final exam with the DPE (Designated Pilot Examiner). They are also prepared following our local rules in order to satisfy the European regulation.
Since 09/2001, the American regulation is subject to change without notice. It could modify, limit, delay or forbid all or part of the training. The European regulation could also forbid, limit or add conditions to the use of US licences and qualifications. Please note that no guarantee can be given in this respect.
Only the Approved Training Organizations (ATO) are qualified to train for European (EASA) licences and qualifications.
