Cantor Air - New EASA Aerobatic Rating Course
Following the entry into force of the latest revision of the EASA PART-FCL regulation, CANTOR AIR requested and obtained the AEROBATIC RATING COURSE according to PART FCL.800 of PART FCL.
With this new configuration, CANTOR AIR has redesigned the national acrobatic course (already in use in the ATO), in order to make it more flexible, and compliant with the EASA regulation.
The new EASA Aerobatic course now includes 6 hours of classroom lessons, followed by 6 FLYING HRS on the CAP10C.
The course is held by 4 aerobatic instructors, three of which are former ITAF military pilots, now serving in CANTOR AIR, and a former European aerobatic champion.
The program of the course, to reach the qualification requires a commitment of a minimum of 5 working days.
Pilots interested in the EASA AEROBATIC rating before starting the course must meet the following requirements:
• Have a valid PPL, CPL or ATPL(A) licence;
• Have a valid SEP (LAND) rating;
• Have a valid rating for difference TW (TAIL WHEEL - obtainable in CANTOR AIR);
• Have a valid class I or II medical,
• Have at least 40 hrs of flight time, completed after the issue of the licence.
With the theoretical part before and the practical part after, CANTOR AIR staff will be able to transfer all the notions to perform safely the basic figures of aerial acrobatics, thus transferring those techniques that are the basis of Italian skills, solidly proven in the history of world aerobatics.
Our New Flight Instructors: Aaron and Roberto
Roberto and Aaron recently finished their MODULAR COURSE in our ATO.
A "STEP BY STEP" path that they immediately took professionally, in which they showed reliability and seriousness fused with an indescribable passion for the aviation world.
A course, the one of Roberto and Aaron, that has been carried out EXCEPTIONALLY. Demonstrated not only by the compliments of Instructors and Examiners in the various phases of the course, but also by the exemplary results they received of the ATPL theoretical exams where they conquered respectively 93.7% and 92.3% of average, perfectly in line with the ATOs POLICY.
However, exemplary results obtained in a period in which the emergency has made everything dramatically much more difficult, requiring efforts far beyond normal conditions.
But Roberto and Arron decided to roll up their sleeves and get back in the game.
On 6 July 2020 they began the INSTRUCTORS COURSE at our ATO without receiving any guarantee from our school regarding future employment.
A course that requires, in addition to an immense aviation passion, a considerable commitment, as it is one of the most prestigious qualifications, thanks to which candidates, once they have become instructors, can represent the example to follow for the new student pilots of the new generations.
In short, AARON and ROBERTO, thanks to their solid basic preparation, have performed the "Flying Instructor" course admirably, far exceeding the high standards required by the ATO and underlining, once again, the professionalism and commitment with which they have faced every challenge that was presented to them.
The determination associated with the passion of these two guys could not go unnoticed. In fact, once the course was over, the Head of Training, Com.te Roberto MAGNANI, officially asked the two pilots to be part of the CANTOR TEAM AIR, becoming thus organic FULL TIME.
The ATO, thanks to the contribution of the two new members, who have already been working for about a month, brings CANTOR AIR's "Disciplinary" flight instructors to 22, consolidating its DNA of solid and reliable structure.
AARON, ROBERTO and all the ATO instructors are the pride of CANTOR AIR which could not be best represented! Thank you, guys!
