I am expected to start my CPL/ME-IR training next summer in One Air Malaga.

Any past experiences? I would really appreciate your feedback.

Kind regards

I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

I've not been to the school, but I've attempted to contact them since November and talk to a mysterious figure 'Cian', who apparently manages training, but I'm convinced he doesn't exist. Still yet to talk to him and I was hoping to go there in October for the full CPL/ME/IR. I have spoken to past students and the feedback has been mixed; some say it was 'OK' and others absolutely rubbish.

The school's got potential to be good, with a nice fleet and a reasonable price. But if they can't manage the very basics of communication, then I'm not going to spend a penny there.

Save the hassle and go to DFA in Sweden (if you can get a place secured and don't mind spending a little extra).

I actually have a slot there and paid 2000€ in advance. I went to visit the school last year and I met Cian, who is Training Assesor only. I talked with him on the phone also. He seems to be a very nice man, but he told me they don’t answer calls from foreign numbers. Try to contact him by Whatsapp if you wish. I can help you with the number via PM.

Good Luck

That would be great if you could.

I have called them about 20 times, managing to get through to a lady three times who told me Cian would call me back, which has yet to materialise. So I gave up.

Hello! I am planning to visit them as soon as I get my medical. How many hours do they give you in the CPL ME IR ”course” and is it all done in the DA42?

That's a very strange practice if you are trying to get foreign students.

I agree.
I also failed to get a response by email/phone
I think if that's the attitude, I'll pass

Cool Grupo One Air Malaga ATPL Integrated

Hi all,
I'm going to visit Grupo One Air flight school in Malaga over Easter to begin my application for the Integrated ATPL scheme and do my aptitude assessment. Does anyone have any experience with this school, gone through this scheme or have any experience/advice they could offer?

Thanks in advance

Hi everyone ,

I did my courses in One Air , if you have time to stay here it's decent a school , I did all my modular course , it's not integrated as they try to hide, everything looks good BUT it's all show , we fly in a outside aerodrome not AGP the aerodrome is Axarquia and the weather is always gusty due to the surrounding mountains it is not the best , and also you have to drive 45min to reach the aerodrome. The course is very different if you are starting from nothing . So my opinion is if you have the time you could come otherwise try to search an another school . And also after the PPL you have to rush everything , pass all ATPL exam in a short time if you need to finish , and if you didn't finish you pay extra for accommodation.

I hope this review help you.

Hi Julien974,

What do you mean the course "it's not integrated as they try to hide"?

I'm considering to start the ATPL programme next year and am planning to visit the school in early 2020.

I just looked at the website thoroughly and nowhere does it try to imply that its an integrated course.

Just because it doesnt say it isnt integrated doesnt mean its hiding something

Before any Junior Birdman* signs up for any course it is critically important that they carry out DUE DILIGENCE.

Visit those ATOs on your shortlist. Speak with the staff and most importantly the customers under going training. How any aircraft ? Reliable? Quality of instruction? Staff / Student ratio. The current students are best placed to give straight answers.
Management likely to say all “rosy in the garden”.

Read all contracts very carefully. They are invariably weighted heavily in favour of the supplier.
Keep a daily diary. Keep all emails. Follow up every conversation, if you express your concerns, with an email to them as if minutes of the meeting.

Any establishment which offers significant discounts for large upfront payments must be regarded as suspicious. It is not recommended and to the more discerning prospective customer be somewhat of a danger signal as to their financial state. Even if some form of Trust Account is mentioned, give it a wide berth.

CAVEAT EMPTOR: Your training is expensive. You need to get it right first time.

And despite this advice which was issued was Pontius was a “Pilot” (Pilate). [5th governor of Judaea] the vulnerable and gullible are still caught out. Some will then start a thread to explain their tales of woe. If only they had taken advice and spoken with friends who were in / completed training.

Note: The term “ Junior Birdman “ is a generic phrase not identifying any particular gender / non-binary status.
