During the first two semesters of the programme, the students are introduced to General Aviation and obtain their very first pilot license which allows them to act as a pilot-in-command on a single engine propeller driven aircraft. Parallel to the practical training organised by Multifly Pilot Academy at Pecs-Pogany International Airport, the students are also develop their english language proficiency in order to obtain preferably an ICAO ELP Level 5 certificate as a proof of their knowledge on aeronautical professional language and to conduct radiotelephony communication using standard phraseology. The programme is designed in a way to provide practical experiences for the students on the highest level of proficiency within aviation industry.

During the third semester, students are beginning to expand their knowledge on aviation and introduced to Commercial Airline Transportation by practicing professionals. This semester is dedicated to provide a fully comprehensible theoretical preparation towards the obtainment of the EASA Airline Transport Pilot License (Aeroplanes) theoretical certificate to secure future employment with a commercial airline transport (airline company). The whole programme is both theory and practical based to give students a border context in aviation and provide competitive experience to facilitate future employment within the industry as an airline pilot, flight instructor or commercial pilot. 

The fourth semester is completely practice oriented whereas students are introduced to real commercial operation at Multifly Kft. At the end of the training students are expected to obtain their EASA Commercial Pilot License for Aeroplanes with ATPL(A) Theoretical credit and all of the qualifications needed to acquire employment as an airline pilot, flight instructor or commercial pilot. During the programme, students expected to successfully pass a theoretical examination of 14 subjects in front of the Civil Aviation Authority. 

The programme provides students 229 hours of total flight time excluding 32 hours on a synthetic training device (STD - simulator). During the whole programme, students are flying with various types of aeroplanes such as Cessna 150/152, Cessna 310, Socata TB-20, Mooney, Piper Arrow.  Students are also going to learn how to fly during night using visual references on the ground and operate an aircraft within instrument meteorological conditions using on-board instruments following instrument flight rules (IFR). 

One of the main objectives is to provide a professional learning environment utilising state of the art equipments as well as introduce the students to industry leading safety and just culture in order to enhance aviation safety and imporve human factors. The practical part of the programme is mainly focusing on the aircraft handling and decision making skills whereas analytical thinking and standard operating procedures are also emphasised. The aim is to train pilots capable to join any commercial operator within the industry and be able to complete any additional training required for further specialisation and employment.

After the completion of the programme and a successful entrance examination, students can continue their studies in the BSc in Civil Engineering programme or the BSc in Electrical Engineering programme also offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, with the possibility of transferring credits of particular subjects of the Advanced Vocational Training programme.
