Important Announcements

8/9/2020

Information regarding the introduction of ECQB 2020

Austro Control hereby announces that as of 1 January 2021 ECQB 2020 will be implemented for all pilot examinations (CPL; IR; ATPL)

This means that as of 1 January 2021 candidates will not be able to book "Old Syllabus" exams (ECQB 6 or 7) for their first attempt, however, for candidates who have already started the series, ECQB 6 or 7 will remain available in parallel to ECQB 2020 until the end of January 2022. Students who have already started their exams before 1 January 2021 may finish their exams using the current ECQB version until 31 January 2022 (as the last possible exam day). Alternatively, they may change to ECQB 2020 after 1 January 2021.

From 1.02. 2022, all registered candidates must take their examinations with ECQB 2020. Any candidates who have not completed the full set of examinations by this cut-off date will be required to finish their examinations following the ECQB 2020 syllabus.

We would like to point out that a change to ECQB 2020 is possible at any time after 1 January 2021, but once candidates have changed to ECQB 2020 and its syllabus, it is not possible to return to the old ECQB syllabus. If you decide to change to ECQB 2020 after 1 January 2021, you should consult your ATO to ensure you are properly prepared for the new syllabus and please note that any resits required under the old syllabus must be completed before you can take your first ECQB 2020 exam.

Further information about ECQB and the change to the new syllabus can be found at:

Faq

What are the benefits of sitting my exams with Austro Control?

Aside from the obvious cost and convenience, the major benefit is that you are keeping your options open to the possibility of acquiring an EASA licence, compared to other less flexible and costly systems.

Can I change to Austro Control if I have already started with NL, CAA, BE CAA, UK CAA or elsewhere?

Due to the special situation of the UK exam results which have been taken under the CAA UK can be transfered to Austro Control (until December 31st 2020). All we need is the result report. This is free of charge.

If I have already started doing my exams with any other EU CAA and wish to change to Austro Control do I have to wait for my 18 months to run out before I start with Austro Control?

No, this is a specific ruling and so cannot be applied when starting in another state.

How often will the sittings for Austro Control be scheduled at Global Aviation S.A.?

In normal circumstances there will be one sitting each month.

How can you make an appeal during the exam?

Questions can only be appealed during the exam. Appeals are no longer possible once the exam is finished and the participant logs out of the exam app. There is a comment function integrated into the app which makes it easy for the students to appeal any faulty questions.

I am a PPL holder. Do I have any subjects credited?

No, unless you have an Instrument Rating. If so, you are excluded from the IFR Communications examination.

Is the process the same for conversion students?

There is a special form for ATPL conversions:

https://www.austrocontrol.at/jart/prj3/ac/data/dokumente/FO_LFA_PEL_324_EN_2019-12-12_2312667.pdf

They have to fill in part 2 and 3 and have to send the application along with the last pages of their log book as evidence that all the information is correct to examination@austrocontrol.at. We will than check if all the requirements are met and if so we will confirm the completeness so that the student can apply for an examination appointment. We are obliged to ask the examinee to present the original log books at their first day of exams and we will be crosschecking the data provided on the application.
