Austro Control GmbH will postpone the changeover in the area of pilot examinations (CPL; IR; ATPL) to ECQB2020 to 01.04.2021
 
Based on the current pandemic developments and the associated partial closures of examination centres, we would like to give candidates who were still trained under the ECQB6 syllabus the opportunity to start their examinations under the same syllabus.
 
As a result, all students who start their pilot examinations on or after 01.04.2021 will have to take them using the questions from ECQB 2020. Students who have already started their examinations before this date can still complete their set of exams until 31.01.2022 (as the last possible examination day) using the current ECQB. 
 
As of 01.02.2022, only examinations based on the ECQB 2020 are generally possible for examinations already started and new examination entries. Candidates who have started under the current ECQB and have not completed their examinations by 31.01.2022 must continue their examinations under ECQB 2020 from 01.02.2022. In general, candidates who have already started under the current ECQB will also be able to continue their examinations from 01.04.2021 based on the syllabus and question database of ECQB 2020, a change is possible at any time. Please note, however, that after a change to ECQB 2020 and its syllabus, a change to the old system / under the old syllabus is no longer possible. 
 
Further information on the ECQB and the changeover to the new syllabuses can be found at: https://www.easa.europa.eu/domains/aircrew-and-medical/european-central-question-bank-ecqb

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.
