    International Airline Career Pilot Program

    The best way to

    touch the sky!

  • Welcome

    Dear Aviation Enthusiast,

    Welcome to our brand new 2015 International Airline Career Pilot Program brochure, we hope you find the content informative and stimulating.

    This is an ambitious and innovative program, in that its aim is to obtain and hold dual flight commercial pilot licenses one from the FAA and one from EASA. The advantages are numerous in terms of professional opportunities and recruitment. Holding both licenses should double your chances of landing an airline piloting position.

    BFS and ATP have teamed up together to deliver this training program which has been especially developed in order to meet both the FAA and EASA regulatory requirements, while also complying with the airlines demands and expectations.

    We provide high quality and enjoyable training courses for aspiring airline pilots as well as for active crew members wishing to receive recurrent training.

    Our philosophy is based on safety, quality and proficiency.

    BFS and ATP are both recognized nationally and internationally as leading providers of aviation training services and general aviation support.

    We all share a genuine passion to offer you the very best quality training, facilities, equipment and a customer service experience to ensure that you leave us with the highly developed skills that you seek.

    We are all extremely proud of our partnership, our staff, our customers, our training centres and the quality of training and customer care that we provide.

    Enjoyable reading,

    ATP and BFS Team

    About us BFS History Established in 1981, BFS started as a school for private pilots. A couple of years after that, the school moved to the airport of Charleroi Brussels South in order to expand its activities. In 2004, BFS became a fully certified European ATO (Approved Training Organisation) and started offering airline pilot training programs, according to the new regulations. The school is approved by the Belgian Civil Aviation Authorities (BCAA) under the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to train pilots (from private to airline pilots) according to the Flight Crew Licensing regulations In 2014, we trained more than 80 students at our two Belgian campuses, on more than 20 aircrafts with 50 fully certified flight instructors and close to 15 dedicated administration / operations officers.

    BFS fleet Our fleet of airplanes consists of more than 20 training aircrafts, allocated between our training facilities in Belgium. These aircrafts are all perfectly equipped for training and have proven their reliability and redundancy, in order to ensure the highest level of safety possible. 2 Beechcraft BE77 Skipper (basic VFR trainer) 7 Cessna C150 (basic VFR trainer) 3 Cessna C172 Skyhawk (advanced VFR trainer) 1 Piper PA28 Archer II (advanced VFR trainer) 3 Cessna C182 Skylane (advanced IFR trainer) 2 Piper PA34 Seneca (advanced IFR twin-engine) 1 Diamond DA42 Twin Star (advanced IFR twin-engine)

    BFS simulators BFS currently uses two modern simulators built by the Swiss company ELITE, known for the quality and reliability of their products. Although these devices are primarily used for instruments training, the 120 to 150 wrap-around visual system allows the students to practice visual circuits and other VFR exercises as well. Our simulators are certified under the current FSTD-A regulation. Their cockpits are designed to reproduce a standard environment, very close to the cockpit of the airplanes used for flight training.

    BFS Training Centres Brussels South Charleroi Airport - Belgium Our headquarters are located at the airport of Charleroi Brussels-South. This airport is internationally known for its fast development. Located only 50 km from Brussels, the airport is the second most active airport in Belgium. The airport, licensed by the Belgian Civil Aviation Authorities and the European rulemaking agency has 2 opposite runways (25/07) full lighted and equipped for instrument procedures and commercial operations (control tower, radar, ILS, NDB, VOR, DME). Students will share the runway with airline jets and other general aviation traffic. Located in the heart of Belgium and in the heart of Europe, airline pilot students will be trained in one of the worlds most complex airspaces, almost entirely controlled and severely organised. This, combined with the challenging weather conditions, contributes highly to the quality of training and to the reputation of the school.

    With a modern, airline-style training centre, our facilities are perfectly equipped to provide student pilots with all the necessary tools required to learn and complete their programs effectively and efficiently using the very last technologies available.

    Liege Bierset Airport Belgium

    Tthe airport of Liege is known as one of Europes most important hubs for freight and cargo flight operations. The airport has 4 opposite runways (23L/R-05L/R), fully lighted and equipped for instrument procedures and commercial operations (control Tower, Radar, CAT III ILS, VOR, DME, NDB). This airport is a perfect platform for professional pilot training. Being mostly active during the night for commercial traffic (typical to cargo operations), this international airport is available during the day for flight training.

    The fact that we are based in Charleroi and Liege doesnt mean that we only fly in and out of these two airports. We fly all over Belgium, and even across boundaries, over to France, Holland, Germany, Luxembourg, or even Switzerland. Europe (especially Central Europe) is covered with hundreds of airports and airfields. From major international airports to remote small grass strip aerodromes, our students will experience cross-country flying and develop their skills thanks to this unique network.
