Class and type rating

The holder of a licence can only act as a pilot of an aircraft if he is, besides medically approved, in possession of a valid class or type rating. Multiple class and/or type ratings can be recorded in one licence.


To be eligible for a class or type rating, you have to meet the following conditions: 

  • have received and finished training at an ATO (Approved Training Organisation), which has been certified by the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate; 
  • have successfully taken a theory exam organised by ATO; 
  • have taken a skill test to prove you possess the required skill level to safely perform flight operations in the relevant class or relevant type of aircraft; 
  • meet the specific experience and admission requirements, depending on class or type rating.

These conditions are based on EU regulation 1178/2011, dated November 3, 2011, Part-FCL, Subpart H, Class and Type Rating. 


Use the application form on the right side of this page to submit your application. After receiving your complete application, including the payment and all required attachments, we strive to process your application within seven days. Incomplete applications are not subject to the seven of process. If your application is not complete we will inform you regarding the missing documents and/or payment.
