Pilot acronyms buster:

ATPL
Airline Transport Pilot License is the highest level of pilot license you will achive once completed all requirment by EASA.

fATPL
A ‘frozen’ Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) reffers to the qualifications of a pilot who has passed all 14 ATPL theoretical exams but has not yet completed thier flight hours requirements. The ATPL would become ‘un-frozen’ when the flight hours requirements are met.

EASA

European Aviation Safety Agency is the authority that regulates aviation in Europe. Keep yourself informed by visiting thier EASA regulations page.

Integrated Area 100 KSA

AIRWAYS AVIATION / ESMA is one of the first aviation training centres in Europe to offer pilot training with integrated Area 100 KSA.

The acronym KSA stands for “Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes” and represents a philosophy in initial pilot training focusing on competency-based training and assessment (CBTA) instead of factual knowledge training.
While gaining particular importance in the aviation field, this paradigm allows students to develop appropriate ICAO core competencies during the ground training and apply theoretical knowledge through practical exercises.

The first ATPL group with Area 100 KSA embedded into the training begins in April 2021. Other training programs available at AIRWAYS AVIATION / ESMA, as Theoretical Modular ATPL and Distance Learning ATPL will also encompass the new approach.

Airlines will be choosing from the pool of licensed pilots who possess and demonstrate vital competencies, such as communication, leadership and teamwork, problem-solving, decision-making, situation awareness, workload management and application of knowledge. Pilots will receive relevant and useful courses that meet industry needs and utilize best practices, improving their credibility to get employed by leading airlines. Their knowledge will come from understanding but not rote learning.

Remember the core of Area 100 KSA:

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn.”
