ATPL(A) theoretical training for the ATPL(A) Airline Transport Pilot License (Aeroplane) is meant for those who want to pursue the career of an airline pilot.

This training can also serve as an alternative option for pilots who wish to extend their current license by obtaining the IR(A).

If you are a non EU citizen you have to have a visa for your stay in Poland. After that we have to apply to the Polish CAA for another permission for the ATPL theory. It is only paperwork, but it takes some time. Once you get all those permissions you can join the course. To get a permission you have to have a notary approved copy of your passport and visa.
