Further advanced certificates and ratings like Certified Flight Instructor (CFI), Certified Flight Instructor Instrument (CFII), and Multi Engine Instructor (MEI) are also available at Europe-American.
The previous experience of the applicant dictates the length of the training course and the cost. Please contact us by email or phone with your specific flight history so we can give you an indication of the training that would be required for any of these ratings.

Europe-American Aviation naturally also provides training for the US ATPL single-engine or multi-engine. Min. requirements are 1500 hrs Total Time of which 500 cross country, 100hrs night and 100hrs instrument. We are often asked if any training done at our facility counts towards the European ATPL. Agreements between ICAO nations grant you all or part of the training requirements for PPL,IFR and CPL. All your flight time will be recognized. For specifics please contact your Aviation authorities.
We have had a lot of customers who, as preparation for their JAR/FCL-ATPL, started with their PPL and Instrument rating with us. While this approach involves more complicated paper-work than joining an “Ab-initio” program with a school in Europe, many students find that the enormous cost savings make this compelling factor in their decision to train with us. This is especially true now with the Euro at historical strong rates.
Not to mention the generally very good weather that will result in a far shorter training time schedule than would be required in Western Europe!
