To apply for an ATPL, you must be at least 21 years old and have fulfilled the training and experience requirements for the type rating of the aircraft used in the skill test. For example, if you are taking the skill test on a Boeing 737, you must have met the relevant flight training requirements for that type of aircraft.
You must also pass the ATPL theoretical knowledge exams in the relevant subject areas. You will likely have done this as part of your training towards the CPL/IR or MPL. The theoretical knowledge areas include:
Aircraft general knowledge — airframe/systems/powerplant
Aircraft general knowledge — instrumentation
Mass and balance
Flight planning and monitoring
Principles of flight
Visual flight rules (VFR) communications
Instrument flight rules (IFR) communications
Once you have obtained the necessary flight time (1500 hours), you may take your ATPL skill test on the relevant aircraft type, or appropriate equivalent full flight simulator.
Make sure you are prepared for your Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) Exam. McRee Learning Center can help.
