To become an EU licenced pilot, a person must undergo a Flight Training course at a pilot training organisation that is approved or registered in the EU. These organisations are subject to European Regulations.
A Private Pilot Licence (PPL) (aeroplane or helicopter) may be granted to a person, after the successful completion of a course at either an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) or a Declared Training Organisation (DTO).
A Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) (aeroplane or helicopter), and associated ratings, may only be granted to a person, after the successful completion of a course at an ATO. A list of ATOs and DTOs, in Ireland, is available on the IAA website.
Students should check directly with the ATO/DTO for the specific courses offered by them.
