State-of-the-art Aircraft and Simulators

AAGPs fleet consists of modern Cessna 172 aircraft with digital computerised avionics (known
as glass cockpit) various static simulators and a full motion highly realistic Airbus simulator
upon which we deliver type ratings to major airlines in the region. Capable and accurate flying
on flight instruments is a primary skill expected of an airline pilot, which is why our training fleet
and equipment is aligned so closely with that found on the flight deck of a modern commercial

Customer Care
Training to be an airline pilot requires total commitment and a great

Airline recognition
While no pilot training course can guarantee you a job, the vast
majority of AAGP graduates upon completing their training go on
to work for one of the major airlines of the region.

Our current statistics reveal that over 95% of our cadets gain
employment with airlines such as:

The Alpha Airline Pilot Program (AAPP) is our flagship product and is a full time training course
be completed in approximately 60 weeks and is delivered at the AAGP training center at Clark
Freeport Zone, Philippines. Cadets reside on a delightful campus where they live and train

The AAPP is designed to take a cadet ab initio from the beginning - through all of the
professional pilot qualifications that are required to work as an airline pilot. However, this
program is not a standard CPL-IR course offered by most other schools in the Philippines. This
program includes a full type rating on the Airbus A320.

The program is fully structured and delivered in a highly professional and disciplined manner
designed to replicate the airline environment in which cadets will find themselves working after
successfully completing their training. We are not an ordinary flying school offering leisure
flights and private licenses: we are a serious, ethical, safety-conscious airline pilot training
academy that will train you for a career, not just a license.

Cadets on the AAPP will complete approximately 230 hours of basic flight training and 124
hours of advanced flight training with a total of around 354 hours, giving cadets a unique
experience and understanding of flying the A320, and ready to join an airline as a First Officer.

AAGP maintain a fleet of modern Cessna 172W aircraft most of which have state-of-the-art
avionics rather than traditional analogue dials. Training with these modern avionics enables our
cadets to experience the kind of computerized displays found on the flight deck of a modern
airliner, making the eventual transition from light training aircraft to large commercial jet,
smoother due to familiarity.

An aspiring cadet must:

1. Be a graduate (any discipline)

2. Be at least 18 years of age
3. Have a CAAP Class 1 Medical Certificate (at the time of course commencement)

Pre-entry Requirements:

1. Must complete the enclosed application form.

2. Must settle the application fee

You will be scheduled for the following pre-entry selection tests:

1. Computer-based Selection Test - ADAPT Pilot Aptitude system

2. Interview with our Pilot Selection Panel

You must prepare the following documents to be presented to AAGP on the date of the
scheduled assessment:

1. Resume (Curriculum Vitae)

2. College Transcript of Records (Marksheets of Graduation)
3. 3 passport size photos

The Phases of Training
Phase 1: Fundamentals Training
You commence your flight training in the Cessna 172 - the most successful mass-produced
light aircraft in history. In this very versatile aircraft you will learn to master the basic principles
of flight. You will fly solo when your instructor is happy with your progress at around 10 to 20
hours into your flying training. The Fundamentals Phase consists of 40 hours flying the C172
and approximately 5 hours in the simulator. You will also spend approximately 3 weeks in
the classroom learning the theoretical knowledge to support your practical skills. The phase
culminates in a Skill Test which gains you the first of your pilot licences.

Phase 2: Advanced Training

The second Phase of your training will consist of general handling using the Cessna 172 with
a little simulator training. You will learn advanced cross country flying and after approximately
40 hours you will take another Skill Test which will award you your Commercial Pilots License,
allowing you to earn remuneration from flying in the future. For the remainder of this phase
you will fly another 100 hours to achieve the recommended number as approved by the Civil
Aviation Authority of the region. During this hour building you will integrate your flying with a
further 11 weeks of theoretical knowledge training.

Phase 3: Instrument Training

The profession of an airline pilot requires you to fly all weathers, particularly in poor visibility.
The ability to fly on instruments rather than visual references is therefore a fundamental part
of the job. You will have had an introduction to instrument navigation by virtue of the fact our
Cessna 172s are equipped with modern computer-driven avionics known as glass cockpit.
In Phase 3 you will learn to carry out complete flights solely using these flight displays which
will put you in good stead for what is to come when you climb aboard our Airbus simulator.
This phase will culminate in the hardest flight test you will face: the Instrument Rating.

Phase 4: First Officer Transition
The final phase of your training is all about flying jet aircraft. The transition from light aircraft
to a modern commercial jet is quite a leap in handling differences though the basic concepts
remain the same. The features of this phase are:

Multi-crew Cooperation - MCC

This short course is designed to teach you how to work as a pair as a pilot and co-pilot.
This is not about the technical aspects of flying but about the human aspect: how to share the
work load, cross checking processes and introducing further safety aspects. The objectives of
the MCC training are to optimize communication, division of tasks, use of checklists, mutual
supervision, teamwork and support throughout all phases of flight under normal, abnormal and
emergency conditions.

Jet Orientation Training - JOT

Where MCC was not concerned with the technical aspects of flying a jet, JOT is just that. This
course focuses on improving aeronautical proficiency and bridges the gap between flying
propeller-driven aircraft and piloting fast jets. In JOT you train over several sessions that build
on each other, the complexity increasing each time, as do the demands placed on you.

Type Rating and Line Orientated Flight Training TR and LOFT
The final two sections of this transition program involve you flying the full motion A320
simulator as near to the real thing as it gets. You will spend approximately 52 hours flying
this machine and this will guarantee you will do well when you go for that first flying job with
an airline. It culminates with you being A320 type rated with experience of flying actual routes
using real operating procedures. Once again, the phase culminates in a Skill Test in the A320.
Upon completing the First Officer Transition, you are more than ready to join an airline as a
First Officer.

Pilot Selection & Assessment
Professional pilot training requires a significant financial committment from cadets and their
parents or sponsors.

It is therefore crucial that we take the responibility to assess our candidates and to ensure that
they have the necessary aptitude and potential to succeed in and complete a programme of
commercial pilot training.

Successful completion of the Selection Process will result not only in being offered a place
on the Alpha Airline Pilot Program, but in the secure knowledge that any risk of failure in
completing the training is minimised.

The computer based tests are devised and made available by our assessment partners -
Symbiotics, a highly experienced Human Performance Company whose clients include many
airlines and military organisations.

A Selection and Assessment Guide is available to prospective candidates, and we advise you to
contact our Customer Services Team to obtain a copy if you intend to undergo the process.

What to do now
We hope you have gained an idea of what the Airline Pilot Program is about: It is designed
to make you the best possible pilot, ready to join an airline with all the skills and experience
necessary to hit the ground running and be an asset to your airline employer.

We expect you to be going for interviews with airlines soon after graduation from AAGPp, and
you can be confident that, after spending 56 hours flying our Airbus A320 full flight simulator,
any simulator check ride should be second nature to you.

We wish you every success in your quest to become an airline pilot and we look forward to
welcoming you to Clark to begin your exciting new future.
