Qatar-ICAO Developing Countries Scholarship Programme 2018

1. Overview

In   November   2017, the   Government of   Qatar and ICAO   jointly established   a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to jointly administer a scholarship programme called the Qatar- ICAO Developing Countries Scholarship Programme (“DCSP”) in order to provide training scholarships for  participants to be nominated by and selected from designated non-Arabic speaking ICAO Member States (“Developing Countries”).

The  objective  of this Programme  is to augment the capabilities  of the Developing Countries to implement the ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices and to promote the safety and development of civil aviation.

The Developing Countries to be designated shall generally be countries that are most in need of assistance especially in the area of aviation training.

Five  participants  will be awarded  Scholarships to follow  any of the six QAC two-year diploma programmes set forth below.

The  training  programmes  will be conducted  in the English language  by lecturers and specialists selected by QCAA and will take place in Qatar on QCAA and QAC premises.

PILOT TRAINING PILOT TRAINING DIVISION (PTD)

Integrated Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) course

(February 2019 to February 2021)

PURPOSE

The QAC PTD's flight training programme is based on the UK CAA's integrated course of training. It is approved by QCAA and mirrors the EASA Flight Crew Licensing training procedures. It is designed to take  suitably capable cadets with no previous flight experience to the right hand seat of a commercial airliner in minimal time.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

QAC  offers  a 24 months  full time Diploma  in Aviation Studies  programme leading to the  issue of a QCAA Commercial Pilot License (CPL) with Multi-Engine Class Rating, and an Instrument Rating (IR). Upon gaining flight experience, this license is then automatically eligible for upgrade to a QCAA Airline Transport Pilot's License (ATPL (A)).

WHAT IS COVERED

The Integrated ATPL (A) course consists of 847 hours of theoretical knowledge training delivered over three stages, leading to 14 QCAA examinations in the following subject areas:

  • Air Law
  • Aircraft General Knowledge
  • Aircraft Performance
  • Human Performance and Limitations
  • Meteorology
  • General Navigation
  • Radio Navigation
  • Instrumentation
  • Flight Planning & Monitoring
  • Operational Procedures
  • Principles of Flight
  • Communications (2 exams)
  • Flight Planning & Monitoring

On the flying side, our syllabus contains a total of 186 hours of actual flight training, consisting of:

  • 144 hours in the Diamond DA40 single-engine aircraft,
  • 42 hours in the Diamond DA42 multi-engine aircraft,
  • A further  53 hours of procedural training conducted in the college's DA40 (single engine) and DA42 (multi-engine) flight navigation procedural trainers.

There  are progress  tests at the end  of each flying phase  and two QCAA Flight Tests  resulting in the issuance of  a QCAA Commercial Pilot License  in a Multi-Engine Airplane with Instrument  Flying privileges.

The  Integrated  ATPL course  concludes with  a 3 week long,  40 hours Jet Orientation  and Multi-Crew Cooperation course  in the college's Cessna Citation Jet  or A320 simulator. At this point, the  freshly graduated cadets are ready for type training with an airline. A typical entry-level aircraft would be the Airbus A320.

LEARNING ACTIVITIES

The Integrated ATPL course is a tight time bound intense course. The key thrust is to learn the theoretical concepts  in a classroom environment and then applying this underpinning knowledge to achieve an effective, safe and  realistic flying training experience. The student performance is monitored by an established Progress and Assessment  Monitoring System (PAMS) which involves a series of planned progress tests/ exams/ competency checks at various milestones. This entails that the student has to be a full time student and actively participate in classroom activities and practical training. QCAA regulation mandates that the student has to complete a minimum of 750 hours of theoretical classroom attendance for issue of the licence.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This  programme  is benefited  to candidates who  have successfully completed  senior secondary school with mathematics and physics and have good proficiency in English. The Pre-entry requirements are as follows:

a. Minimum age 17 years.

b. Achieve IELTS scores: Reading 5.5, Listening 5.5, Speaking 5.5 and Overall 5.5.

c. Achieve passes in all subjects in the Foundation Program, (Maths 75% and Physics 75%) and /

or provide educational equalisation certificates.

d. Hold a valid Qatar Class 1 Medical Certificate.

e. Have passed the Maths and Physics examinations set by QAC and have achieved a grade 5 or above in the Pilot Aptitude Test (PILAPT).
