I recieved an updated contract. It states the duration to max 3 months. This works both ways, as I will not be axed if I can not finish in 6 weeks.
Did you book the courses with them?
Hi Conr8. It seems it not possible for me to get any PM, it's not working due to full inbox (although I've emptied it)... you can write to me to [email protected]

Thanks!

Unfortunately One Air cant take me on due to no spaces available. Next available course is from 0-ATPL. I have alot of hours already from my ppl training here in the UK.

Hi again.
Well, with my ME/IR/CPL fresh in the bag (finished November 28 2018), I can now share my experience with One Air.

In short: If you are going for ME/IR/CPL, I can only recommend them.
I started October 1st. Course price was 17.500 €, of which 2000 € was paid in advance as a deposit.
This included the course, all the flying and landing fees, exams, and accommodation and food at a nearby dorm.
The updated contract stated a duration of max. 3 months.

On the phone, I was told that the whole course could be done in 6 weeks, but most people ended up or chose to do it in 8 weeks.
Had the weather been better, I might just have been able to do it in 7 weeks, but I did it in 8.

Their facilities concerning the ME/IR/CPL is close to optimal.
They have a Garmin 1000 simulator for the initial Garmin training. An ALSIM FNTP II flight simulator for the IR training, two DA42's for the ME/IR part and a DA40 for 10 hours out of the 15 for the CPL.
We were 4 who started at the same time. We all had different prerequisites, but none of us had more than the bare minimum required hours to start the course.
I had to do a couple of extra hours in the G1000 sim to improve my workflow and then 1Ĺ hour extra in the ALSIM. This I had to pay 200 € extra for.
There is not much theory included in the course, and you are expected to know your ATPL theory.
ME/IR flights are flown from Malaga Airport. The 10 hours on the DA40 are flown from a nearby airfield, La Axarquia (40 min. drive from Malaga), and then the last 5 hrs. on the DA42 back in Malaga Airport.

What would be my recommendations for anyone doing the course?
Well, there is a couple of things.
1. The dorm, Teatinos University Residence, is included in the price. It is a clean place that has recently been renovated (so the old reviews on Google do not do them justice).
You get room with a bed, a desk, a chair and you share a bathroom/toilet (4 rooms to 2 bathrooms).
The other inhabitants are mostly young people (16-20 is my guess), and the rules at the place reflects this. There is one block for women and one for men. No visit in the rooms from the opposite sex. Not a problem for me, but my two good friends at the course was a couple. It was hard for them not being able to stay together. Also, you won't be allowed to have a fridge in your room. Spain can be very hot in the summer, so that kind of sucks. Just be prepared for it, and you will learn to do without.
You need transportation to the school and the airport. I brought my mountainbike. It took me 20 minutes to the school. However, when I started flying, I rented a car. By bus, the trip is about an hour.

2. The school do what they can to finish you on time. They are lacking instructors, but that should be taken care of by the next course.

3. The course is very cheap and compressed (which is probably why you are considering them right?)
This means that you are supposed to be familiar with the instrument procedures BEFORE you go flying. This can be accomplished by using a free Garmin 1000 simulator found on the internet, an old laptop and an instrument procedures manual (one will be provided, but you can download them of the internet).

4. Food is provided at the canteen at the dorm. If you are flying late or in the sim at night (yes, it is operated 24 hrs. a day), they can make you a sandwich or a tapas to bring, or save some lunch/dinner for you.

So you won’t have a lot of expenses. Do take into account that you need to go out now and then and socialize, go to the cinema, drive to beautiful Granada or Seville, buy gas and personal stuff and so on.
And If you are like me, you might need a little extra SIM time. Better have a economic backup plan for that just in case.

Well, I think that is more or less what I have.
They just started a PPL to MCC course of 32 students. I cannot give you any advice on their behalf because it is a very different course.
Don't hesitate to ask if you have a question.
However, I'm struggling with this "only 1 message and your inbox is full" problem.

You can’t use the Private Messaging system in or out, add url links or images until you have an established posting history. Email should be open for you both in and out.

Now it's all about getting a flying job with my low hours from here... And the jobs are there :-)

Kind regards to you all, blue skies and best of luck.

Just opening this thread back up.

I've been trying to get ahold of One Air for the past 2 weeks and it's proving to be as difficult as getting an answer from a politician. I managed to get through to a reception lady three times, having to leave a message as this mysterious figure 'Cian' seems to always be on a conference call and he'll call me back after - which has yet to materialise.

It's difficult to rule out the ATO, as it's a good price on a nice fleet and I've spoken to two past students who have highly rated them.

Does anyone have any more information on them or who are currently studying there?

Dear brocken_spectre

I also have some friends having this problem. I have a signed contract with One Air and actually paid 2000Ä in advance for the CPL/ME-IR course and I am expected to start during summer, but I read some very negative reviews about this school on spanish forums, as I am not a Spanish speaker is very difficult for me to understand just by using google translate.

Any past experiences with One Air would be really appreciated, I wouldn't like to waste even more money.

Kind regards

Iíd be very careful - I recently spoke to somebody who lost their deposit as they didnít receive a response to their cancellation request. Iíve still yet to get ahold of One Air so I think Iím going to save the worry and go elsewhere.

Itís a shame, but Iím not going risk the huge amount of money it costs for a CPL/ME/IR on a company who canít manage the bare minimum of communication.

Iíve also been told that all the 5-star reviews on their Facebook page are from employees and also the management of the training is piss-poor. Sim sessions are booked only a week in advance and flying a day before!

Lo barato sale caro.
I am also spanish, and flying for an spanish airline, actually A 340 and A 350. I can't believe what you are saying. My son is joinning next september an spanish school. Many of my colleages' sons and daughters are studiing or going to start at an spanish school.
I haven't heard about One in Malaga, but believe me, if its an approved ATO, can be trusted.

Cheap things are expensive at the end.
FTE is ok, hiperexpensive, and you will have to pass an exam to enter. In your dreams will finish in 15 months. And now you will gef a CAA license, not an EASA.

ONE AIR MALAGA

Hello everyone,

Am looking for a school that offers the CPL IR ME.
Am interested in DFA in Sweden and in One Air Malaga.

Have anyone some solid informations about One Air in Malade, especially concerning the serious/quality training during those 6-8 weeks duration training ?

I really want to do that CPL IR ME not more than 2 - 2,5 months.

Thank you

Does anyone have any past or current experiences with this school in Malaga, Spain? I've been trying to contact past and current students but only a few has answered my messages. This school has a fleet of around 10 aircraft, DA20, DA40 and DA42, offering a "zero to hero" course (16ish months) for a price of 59,000€. The place seems nice, but I don't know if it is really that good. They offer 209 real flight hours in Diamond aircraft (most of them are done in the DA20, after that CPL MEIR in DA42 and the rest on DA40) , 86 hours in Almsim FNPTII and 25 hours in G1000 simulator. They have three intakes per year, 16-20 students and are solely doing these programs from 0 to ATPL and CPL MEIR packages. I am thinking that if it is possible to do it in 16 months because of having "only" 10 aircraft and a high student:aircraft ratio. 59k€ sounds "too cheap". They have grown up in these years, ordered more aircraft and I've read that they have ordered a new AL42 simulator. I am just a bit suspicious because of the attractive price... Thanks

Hi,
I am interested in the school OneAir. I am French. I wondered if we could exchange a bit. I have a Spanish friend currently doing his training there (integrated).

Thanks
