Currently, Modular pilot training is given in TAFA. Pilot candidates participating in TAFA first receive orientation training and then PPL theoretical training. Afterwards, PPL flight training starts. After receiving the PPL license, they complete their ATP theoretical training consisting of 14 courses. This process is followed by PIC flights, modular IR and modular CPL phases. Candidates who have completed their Multi-Engine training, take the CPL/IR control flight and are entitled to receive a license if they are successful. Finally, candidates who take the modular MCC course complete their training.
The most particular reason for choosing Aydın is that the climatic conditions of the region are very favourable for flight training. In order to increase the student capacity of the academy, being in need of an aerodrome which will be used only by us is another factor. From the year we started our trainings in Aydın, our annual training flight hours are doubled verifying our decision.
