Aviation has become a new career for students to explore. With hi-tech innovations and an objective to offer aviation training at the highest level comes the European Aviation School Barcelona. The school has an experienced management team with over 20 years of experience training and developing excellent pilots. Standing apart from other aviation schools, specifically in its implementation and operation, EAS Barcelona is highly cooperative, working together to positively and effectively complete all of its work.

EAS Barcelona is a training institution that thoroughly satisfies students with an all-around academic experience. Students can obtain the best possible result in their training. EAS Barcelona intends to be a leading European aviation training enterprise synonymous with quality training. In this manner, EAS Barcelona aims to help students complete their training with the best possible results, accompanied by a wide range of skills: not just with their intellectual ability but also with sound judgement, scientific knowledge, and occupational aptitude.

The EAS Barcelona team has achieved exemplary results over the years. Additionally, the matter of safety permeates every activity undertaken at EAS Barcelona. To EAS Barcelona, global safety requisites, which become increasingly ambitious and stringent with time and, thus, more demanding, are not an inconvenient obstacle nor a difficulty that must be overcome. Rather, they are an opportunity for constant improvement, a basis for action and, fundamentally, the school’s overall purpose. This characteristic of EAS Barcelona is the first unquestionable argument in recognising quality and safety as inseparable and essential factors. The academy believes that it is not solely on how we act or how we want to act, but it is the achievement of one’s objectives. This thought is woven into the school’s DNA and imbibed in the students. It is only by extending the importance of quality and safety to everyone involved in EAS Barcelona at every level – be they instructors, organisers or directors– that these currently desired levels of quality and safety may be reached.

The city of relaxation

Barcelona is a beautiful city, given its unique personality. It is universally recognised for its multiculturalism, with rich offerings of recreation and leisure activities and richness in art and architecture. Barcelona is known for its environmental perks, opening up to the sea and nestled in by mountains; and, among many other things. Training and studying as a pilot in Barcelona is an excellent commodity for those who already live there and offers a fantastic opportunity to students from other areas.

For foreign students, their aeronautical training will accompany a vastly enjoyable stay. Barcelona’s surroundings are equally as enticing and attractive. A multitude of physical activities and many other free time activities are available to all, from the sea to the mountains- all of it a short distance from Barcelona. Not far from the city centre, we find the Costa Brava, the Pyrenees Mountains, Montserrat, the Ebro Delta, and the list goes on, an almost never-ending variety of natural spaces pleasing to all in one way or another.

Facilities at its Finest

The administrative headquarters of EAS Barcelona is located on Rector Triadó Street, next to Sants Station, where all of the theoretical classes and flight simulation training are carried out. Flight sessions are completed at Sabadell Airport, in which EAS Barcelona has its own office, flight tracker, flight preparation zone, Flight dispatch, and private lounges for students and instructors. Theoretical and flight simulation training phases in a large city Centre (Barcelona, Sants). The city’s location and layout give students quick and easy daily access.

Classrooms at EAS Barcelona are equipped with the most up-to-date technologies, IT, and computer software, along with ‘traditional’ systems that help students have a variety of experiences and allow for a holistic learning process. EAS Barcelona houses a radiotelegraphy room where students can complete their flight simulations from individual cabins in shared airspace with other instructional aircraft fleets representing actual aircraft. In another room, an instructor or controller manages the aviation space (and the flights) of aspiring pilot students precisely like real flights are controlled in real air space.

EAS Barcelone has private meeting rooms that are fundamental for students to receive, in a regular fashion, and especially whenever desired, the orientation, assessment, and solution to any consultation or concern that may arise regarding their theoretical training. Facilities for the flight phase that is room for briefings, preparation and analysis of findings, along with the flight dispatch, are conducted at the Sabadell Airport’s service building, where students must be able to effectively arrange and organise all of the pre and post flight services, corresponding to both the flight school itself and those used by airport operators in air traffic control, instantly and in the best terms, for both quality and comfort. This is how the professional world works and how the best results are achieved – as operational as they are educational.

Access to the school is quick, comfortable and above all, easy. Numerous means of public transportation can be used to reach the Plaça dels Països Catalans stop at Sants Station (Estació de Sants). There are local commuter trains, medium and long-distance trains, buses, and extensive metro services. Access to Sabadell Airport, more specifically, to the EAS Barcelona offices and dispatch at the airport (in the airport’s main services building) can be realised by car from Barcelona on the C-58 highway or by train FGC local commuter train Line R4 from Sants Station or from other central train stations. Using public transportation, the theoretical class and simulator facilities, as well as the flight dispatch of EAS Barcelona, can be reached in approximately 35 minutes.

Getting the right Programme

EAS Barcelona offers a range of courses for aviators and those who aspire to be in the Cabin crew. According to airline requirements, ATPL(A) integrated courses are offered for student groups previously selected for Airlines. In these courses, students from any country come to EAS Barcelona to train as future airline pilots. The ATP (Airline Transport Pilot) consists of three parts: the theoretical, flight simulator, and flight Phases. These three phases of the course are not undertaken sequentially, one after the next, but simultaneously, well-coordinated and integrated for sound and practical learning. Only the MCC (Multi Crew Coordination) training, where students are trained in the coordination between pilots of passenger aircraft, will be conducted on its own at the end of the course. Practice flights are completed with single-engine aircraft first, and later dual-engine aircraft, increasing the characteristics of flight, navigation and systems along the way until completing flight simulations of the A-320 in the final phase of the course duration of the course 18 months.

The school also offers a Modular Program where commercial pilot training can be done modularly in those cases when applicants do not have enough time to attend ATPL(A) integrated course. The total duration of training will always depend on the necessary time to pass the theoretical exams and the time needed to do all the flight hours required. However, the total duration is estimated to be 24 to 36 months.

EAS Barcelona also offers specific courses for airlines that cover crew training, like the cadet programme and training for cabin crew. According to airline requirements, ATPL(A) integrated courses are offered for student groups previously selected for Airlines. Cabin Crew means those professionals present in aircraft cabins dedicated particularly to passengers’ security and flight comfort, and normality from passengers’ perspective. They are professionals called assistants, flight attendants or, generally, flight crew.

EAS Barcelona also collaborates with European ATOs (Approved Training Organizations) that, due to meteorological conditions in its countries or flight hours demand, want to do part of its training in Spain. For that purpose, EAS Barcelona offers flight operation logistics (operations room, briefing rooms and simulators) and the accomplishment of different flight phases according to the syllabus of the ATO itself.

Helping Careers take off

The quality of instruction and the initial training of a pilot is essential for the aeronautical industry. EAS Barcelone realises that in the next 20 years, there will be a need for more pilots who must be well trained. According to the current systems and procedures, EAS focuses on providing the best quality of teaching with modern aircraft with the latest technology and continuous improvement. At EAS, the management cares every day about the well-being of students as well as their academic progress. Throughout their training, the students and faculty create a family and pleasant atmosphere so that students feel as supported as possible.

Currently and post-pandemic, the aeronautical industry is recovering from a hard blow. It is beginning to reactivate, which is why the demand for pilots is increasing and will increase in the coming years due to market demand. Due to the infrastructure of the school and the quality of instruction the school provides, EAS Barcelona is currently a good option for a professional pilot career.
