Do you guys know if Bartolini only offers their 0 to fATPL program?
I wanted to do my PPL there and later on decide whether stay there or not but they told me I have to do the whole program, which for me sounds weird isn't it?

Hi Michel,

I just read your post that you had enrolled at Bartolini. I'm planning to enroll (from 0 to fATPL) but they say the next available slot is in July/August 2018. Is it the same for you or are you starting inmediately?

Btw it is not a problem that I start in that dates in 2018 because I'm still finishing university but maybe I would like to do the PPL before that, maybe March/April.

Greetings

What? That does sound weird! From what I understood, the whole programme is modular and not integrated. How exactly did they "say" this?

You could go there and do your PPL, then you go home for the ATPL study, but as they say you can take your CAA exams in any country, what's stopping you from never showing up to Bartolini again and doing your CPL/ME/IR someplace else?

I just asked for cpl mep ir and they told me the first slot available is in October 18. But my question is: how is the weather in Poland from October? Has anyone done the training in that period?

If you go somewhere else, maybe you will even be able to find a job before Oct 2018

If it's so, I hope you have already reserved your slot at Bartolini or you are going to do it soon.

I did my IR training in Poland mid-october. The weather was always VFR for 5 days except once in Lublin. Then it was different next 5 days: fog could be there all the day and fortunately there was one 'window' with visibility of 8km with clouds at 1500-2000 feet (the day of exam)
One thing is sure that it was warm enough for no-icing conditions

Hi,

I am still at Bartolini in February, if you have any questions let me know. I started the PPL course in August, and except for maybe 1 guy, nobody from this class will finish before the christmas holidays and have to come back in February, making it hard for the new PPL class to fly. I think this is due to bad organisation of the school at this moment.
A lot of hour builders, other outsiders, a shortage of instructors, a shortage of daylight, aircraft maintenance and bad weather make it very difficult to reserve slots to fly right now. Within my class there are guys switching schools to finish their PPL asap.

Is there anyone who has recently signed up for combined ME/IR/CPL with bartolini? Last time I checked the price was MUCH lower (in the origin of £12000). At the moment their website says 17,500euro. If I take flights/accommodation/food into account it would be similar/same price to the UK!

Ä17500 is around £15500. Most combined CPL/ME/IR Iíve seen in the UK are in the region of £22-25K. Still a fair bit to be saved even after flights and accommodation etc

Stapleford quotes £18,500 according to Wings Alliance website. So it just leaves £3,000 difference for accommodation, food, transport etc. So the decision to study with bartolini is not a straghtforward decision based on the price anymore. But I guess if you need more than the minimum hours then bartolini will work out much cheaper. I will need to seriously think it through.

Having paid for the course in February '17 I can confirm that there has been no movement in course fees since last year, there are several other nice things that get thrown in to the pot as well when you are there. For all round value it was difficult to beat them. An all round positive experience.
The reason why you think that the course has got more expensive has nothing to do with Bartolini.
Weather was OK with very few days lost.
