When a foreign license is transferred, and one doesn’t look at the actual differences in requirements between the two sides, what often happens is that the applicant ends up flying between 80 and 100 hours of general training as well as another 80 to 100 hours of instrument training on top.
Alpha Aviation does its outmost to avoid this scenario.

We’ll look into the details of what actually is necessary and will sort this out for you.

You can’t write up a quick-and-dirty assessment of what it will cost here, so we’re happy to receive the details of what budget you have and your flight experience by mail or fax so we can advise you properly.
