Poland has been a member state of the European Union since 1 May 2004 and Warsaw is its capital city. Poland is also a member country of European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) – a EU agency that carries out certification, regulation and standardisation and also performs investigation and monitoring. In Poland you can work towards Civil Aviation Authority (ULC) issued licences that are in accordance with EASA regulations. They are valid in most parts of the world or are very easy to convert.
Training fees are far more affordable in Poland in comparison to Western Europe while offering the same standards. There is no difference between a Germany- or France-issued license and a Poland-issued license. Therefore, a graduate pilot from UnitedSky Pilot Academy can enjoy the same privileges for less.
Air traffic is very heavy in Warsaw, which provides a great opportunity to gain experience for students. There are 3 major aerodromes in Warsaw along with many other local airfields in less than 1 hour of flight. Firstly Chopin International Airport (EPWA) which is the main hub for Warsaw and for Lot Airlines. Secondly, Modlin International Airport (EPMO), which lies on the outskirts of Warsaw city and is a local hub for Ryannair and finally Warsaw-Babice (EPBC) which serves as the general aviation center for Warsaw. Babice is located in the city of Warsaw and is very easy to commute. It is our home airport.
A pilot is to operate in the international airspace shall demonstrate the ability to express and understand in the language used for radiotelephone communication. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) requests that he or she must reach a minimum operational level (level 4 out of 6) proficiency of English language. UnitedSky will arrange the exam for you via its partners.
International students are very welcome to UnitedSky! We believe that Poland is the best place in Europe to start pilot training because of many advantages. International students ought to follow some formalities but we at UnitedSky are always here to help. What you would need are:
– Visa Application to enter Polish Territory (depending on the nationality of the applicant)
– Flight Training Permission Application from ULC (Polish Civil Aviation Authority)
*More formalities might be requested depending on the individual but UnitedSky will always assist you.
Our airplanes are maintained by our strategic partner Ibex Company. Ibex has the so called Part-145 certification which is the highest maintenance and technical certificate issued by EASA. To sum up our airplanes are constantly maintained with the highest possible standards along with the advantage of having the maintenance hangars right at our facilities.
UnitedSky operates from Babice Airport (EPBC) in Warsaw, the capital city of Poland. Our location allows our students to learn flying in a very busy air traffic environment. The density of EPBC is comparable to those of a typical international airport even though only general aviation aircrafts are allowed.
You need a Medical Class 1 certificate (Prerequisite for CPL) before flying solo in an airplane. We suggest you get your medical check before starting the training. This will alert you to any condition that would prevent you from becoming a pilot before you invest your time and money. We will be happy to arrange the medical visit for you with a doctor who is an authorized aviation medical examiner.
UnitedSky is certified by Polish Civil Aviation Authority(ULC) to deliver a very wide range of trainings. Our privileges allow us to train a person with no previous experience up to a professional level. Candidates can join us for modular and individual trainings as well.
