Students about the training team

During the theoretical training a knowledgeable instructor was on hand at all times.  The practical training took place in a full motion simulator that created a fully immersed training environment with an experienced ATR Captain willing to pass on knowledge on a range of subjects.  ETOPS has founded my career as an ATR Pilot with classroom based instructor led theoretical training at a competitive price. Thank you ETOPS!


ATR Type rating

I was very well informed before starting the training. Everything was organized perfectly. Staff very friendly and welcoming. We had a great instructor who really prepared me already to a good standard with Wizz Air SOPs and has great knowledge of the Airbus.

Tous les horaires ont été respectés à la minute. Notre instructeur avait une grande expérience de la ligne, de l’Airbus et de la formation. C’était un plaisir de travailler dans ces conditions. Good job !

Personnel accueillant et disponible pour tous les renseignements nécessaires a la constitution du dossier de formation. J’ai apprécié la disponibilité des interlocuteurs et la rapidité de réponses. Les dates ont été calées conformément aux prévisions. La recherche d’un binôme par ETOPS à également été déterminant dans mon choix d’organisme de formation. En conclusion, organisation très bien orchestrée de la part d’ETOPS aux niveau humain, logistique et financier.
