Theoretical Knowledge Syllabus For CPL, ATPL and IR

Updated on 2nd May,2016

I have duplicated the EASA syllabus. This theoretical knowledge syllabus is the current one at time of publication. Anyone planning to sit the theoretical knowledge subjects for the EASA exams will need to complete a course at an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) covering the syllabus described in the table below.

Refer to EASA documents AMC1 FCL.310; FCL.515 (b); FCL.615 (b)
SYLLABUS OF THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE FOR THE ATPL, CPL AND IR
The following table contains the detailed theoretical knowledge syllabus for the ATPL, CPL and IR.
The applicable items for each licence or rating are marked with ‘x’.
