Bartolini flight school does not convert licenses on individual bases

So I have read good reviews about this particular flight school, and was looking into it to go and do my flying portion of the conversion, after I write the easa atpl exams. After a few emails, I was told that they don't provide training for license conversion on a separate bases and if I wanted to convert i would have to do the full course. Given my situation (cpl with multi ifr) I wouldn't need to do the entire course since I only need 3 to 10 hours flying for CPL and 15 for multi IFR. It wouldn't make sense to do the full course and hours since the cost is a lot higher. Only benefit is more flight hours in your log book. I thought I would share this with other members looking for flight schools to do their flying portion of their license conversion

Bartolini Air has not been doing conversions for at least over a year now. And they would be overloaded anyway. It's already been written on several occasions in the relevant thread.

Well, I got the same reply from them, about a year ago. Obviously they are only interested in making the big money. It's too much paperwork and to little profit. And the waiting time to start the training/flying is ridiculous as well, can't start this year because they are overbooked. Nobody want's to wait a year to start training, everybody want's to get done as fast as a possible and get a job in the cockpit. Waiting means loosing in this industry!!! So don't waist your time with them and go elsewhere!

Or you work out when you are able to do the CPL ME IR and book well in advance and pay a deposit to secure your place?

Are you serious man?
You don't have to wait for an entire year.. you can go somewhere else.
it's normal that they have a lot of reservations as they are one of the cheapest in Europe.
