Flight School


Approved Training Organization Section II – Professional

FARES 2019

The Alpine Airlines flight school was created in 2014 by Alpine Airlines founders in order to meet our pilot training need.

Certified “Approved Training Organization” – ATO – since June 2014, this is currently the only flight school to provide a Mountain Rating course on wheels and skis (glaciers) in a professional environment.

Based all year long at Courchevel airfield and at Chambéry airport, you will benefit from our instructors long experience, who are also airline pilots in our company, in the greatest conditions.

Site qualification

Courchevel & other Altiports

3 flight hours + 2 hrs of theoretical class

The altiport qualification will be granted to pilot license holders who have undergone specific training on each site.

The training lasts 1.5 days including a minimum of 3 flight hours and ground courses about mountain flying.

The authorization is then valid for 6 months, and is automatically extended each time the pilot uses the altiport as the pilot in command.
