Completely on your own. You can ask the school and they give you advices but you have to book yourself... I am staying in an Airbnb south of Bartolini until I finish my lectures. After that I'm moving to the city. There's plenty of things to rent and student depots etc so you don't have to worry about that.

Feedback for CPL MEIR

Can any recent or current students give any feedback for the CPL MEIR courses?

A/c availability?
Wx situation?
Organisation of the course?
Communication with instructors?
CPL format?
IR format ?

Just overall general opinion and what to expect?

Pm me if you don't want to post here.

Thanks!

I have booked accommodation with Student Depot Lodz. They are very close to Bartolini and very reasonably priced too!

I was living in Salsa student depot 2 years ago and it was fine despite it is far from Bartolini. Indeed it was only for ATPL ground courses for 2 weeks only

Sorry to hijack this thread a bit...but does any one know the current waiting time for the CPL, MEIR, course? I should start studying for my ATPL exams shortly, and was wondering if I should book on for a year after I start these?

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks

PS

Sorry to bring this thread up again... I was just wondering if any one who went with Bartolini air visited before committing, I assume most people do! Do they have open days? Or is it just a case of calling them up and asking to be shown round? I have emailed them, but they appear two have to websites "flyinpoland.com" and another, and I'm not sure which is their main site...maybe its better to just call them I guess?

Hi, I am still quite new to this forum and to aviation in general so sorry in case my question has been asked before.

I am about to sign up with Bartolini for their 0-fATPL programme and the papers to sign mention something about being aware about the risks and the possibility of taking extra personal insurance. I was wondering if, as current or former students, you would recommend to get extra insurance? If so, which would you recommend? Did you go with an insurance company in Poland or in your home country? Thank you so much!

first days

Hi there,

I am signed up to start ATPL course Feb 2019, really excited, huge commitment as me, my wife and my kids will move to Lodz from UK. For those that have completed or currently doing their course, how did you find the first few days/weeks in terms of guidance from the school? Also, what did you do before your first day with Bartolini? So far, i am half-way through reading the FAA pilot handbook and that's it...

I'm curious as to why you felt the need to move the entire family to Lodz? Wouldn't it be cheaper if you just had to pay for one person (yourself)? Congrats on taking the first step!

Generally most young people in Lodz under 30 speak a few words of English (in may cases more than a few words) and the traders that do business are generally accommodating to the many different languages. Don't expect anyone over 40-50 to be either enthusiastic about your presence or to speak anything other than Polish, again there are exceptions. The school is there to help you get your licence and they do everything to support you with your professional aims. If they had to concentrate on all other aspects concerning your life outside the school then it would dilute their available support. You need to show initiative and organisational skills, after all you want to become a professional pilot operating worldwide, a role that requires a high degree of autonomy.

Edit: Before you go a nice touch might be to do a few online Polish lessons, just making the effort to speak the language goes down very well with the locals.

I'm a bit confused with the employees at Bartolini. I've been trying to get some info from them since last week and sometimes a day or two will pass without response, then I'll get a short message/question that I'll reply to then another day or two without response.... then just now I get an email that gets to my inbox at 2100hrs UTC and Poland is +2 so does that mean this lovely lady is at work at 11pm? Boy, they must be really busy! Finally got the info I needed though and cannot fault the help that they give and the attention they have to detailed responses to my queries.

Anyone knows what is the frequency that they do the brush-up sessions for the ATPL Theory? Do they have waiting list to start it the ATPL theory?

Thanks

You have to attend 2 weeks in Lodz. This is it. There are no brush up like in Bristol. These 2 weeks are planned every two months. You can start with ATPL theory when you want but you have to wait 5 months before to start the exams. In this 5 months you should complete the CBT, attended the 2 weeks of classroom and passed the final test. Then you will receive the certificate of course completion which allow you to book the exams at the CAA.

What does the COMPASS test entail?
Is it exactly the same as the content on Latest Pilot Jobs?

Or is the assessment test just a personality test and a quick chat with a psychologist?

-How much of the schooling with Bartolini is done on location in Poland (how often + how long per time?) - I would be able to combine it with my part-time job possibly
-I have asked this all to the school via mail but no answer for two weeks - school closed atm?
-Considering quality/possibilities with airlines/price, do you have some good recommendations of other school I could look into? (anything West, South, East Europe please)

Thanks in advance for checking out
-Plenty of guys and girls in Ryanair and other airlines and GA/bizjets operators. Some made it in their national flag carrier. Some schools do have a preference for integrated graduates. I am the only modular guy recruited by my current employer, all the others are from CAE and other integrated academies from the area.
-All of the training is done in Poland. You can study the theory at home.
-Can't answer on this one.
-Diamond Aviation Academy in Sweden and Aerodynamics in Malaga.
