The privileges of a BIR holder are to conduct flights under IFR on single-pilot aeroplanes for which class ratings are held, with the exception of high-performance aeroplanes and aeroplane variants if operational suitability data has determined that an IR is required.

The privileges of a multi-engine BIR shall also be valid on single-engine aeroplanes for which the pilot holds a valid single-engine class rating.

The exercise of BIR privileges shall be subject to all of the following conditions:

  1. The decision height (DH) or minimum descent height (MDH) used in aerodrome operating minima shall be at least 200 ft greater than what would otherwise be calculated according to point ‘NCO.OP.110 Aerodrome operating minima – aeroplanes and helicopters’ and point ‘NCO.OP.111 Aerodrome operating minima – NPA, APV, CAT I operations’ to Annex VII of Regulation (EU) No 965/2012; and
  2. The visibility used in aerodrome operating minima shall not be less than 1.500 m;
  3. The pilot-in-command shall not commence a flight under IFR or undertake a VFR to IFR transition, unless:
  • At the aerodrome of departure, the visibility is at least 1 500 m and the cloud ceiling is at least 600 ft, or the published circling minimum applicable to the aeroplane category, whichever is the greater; and
  • At the destination aerodrome and at any required alternate aerodrome the available current meteorological information indicates, for the period from 1 hour before until 1 hour after the estimated time of arrival, or from the actual time of departure to 1 hour after the estimated time of arrival, whichever period is shorter, a visibility of at least 1 500 m and a cloud ceiling of at least 600 ft, or the published circling minimum applicable to the aeroplane category, or the DH/MDH incremented by 200 ft in accordance with (1), whichever is the greater.

At Airpull Aviation during my PPL was amazing. They made an amazing job to schedule training flights when was possible for me as I live in another country. The own aerodrome and facilities are good to train you to become a great pilot as you can do as many landings and take offs as you want. Looking forward to start the ATPL now!

Stefano Martegani

I was an Italian modular ATPL student and I did there my IR, NR, ME, CPL and MCC. The high level of school’s organization, together with amazing instructors, gave me the best pilot training ever. I did in 5 months what I could have done in Italy in 12, also because the aerodrome is property of the school, with all the advantages of the case. 100% best quality/cost ratio for pilot training!

A great Flying School. Neat, well kept, organized, clean, efficient, SAFE, great instructors, great food at the Restaurant and best of it all: It makes you feel at home. The airport environment is very enjoyable where you get to see all kind of Aviators, from aviation students with their instructor or doing their solo flights to all kind of aircraft owners who gather to have fun while flying their airplanes and their family and friends sharing great Spanish food. Just like I said above, being ran by its owners, you can feel how well the want to do it and they do indeed!! If you are searching for a suitable place to discover aviation or become a professional Pilot in Europe search no more: This is

Airpull Aviation Academy has been my flight school during my process of becoming a commercial pilot. This great school has always provided me with outstanding services. Not only the facilities but their own large fleet of aircrafts allow for a “non-queuing” experience and focus on what is most important, flying as much as possible, gaining knowledge and experience. All of this wouldn’t be possible either without their great team of instructors and, of course, an unbeatable meteorology, which helps swift the process. If your dream can be found in an airplane’s console, I can’t do anything but recommend Airpull Aviation Academy.

Vicente Soler

Airpull Aviation Academy has been and is my home. The place where I started and finished my ATPL studies to later become an airline pilot. The possibility of having an own aerodrome with no waiting times or commercial traffic interruptions make it a wonderful place for the instruction. Good aircraft maintenance and an excellent human team!

Jorge Roig

Perfect place to invest in studying an Integrated ATPL(A) Course. Thanks to its facilities with its own private aerodrome, that is always in constant evolution and improvements, its instructors whose education is constantly updating and with unique experiences within different airlines, make Airpull Aviation Academy leader in pilot training.

Student FAQ

Airpull Aviation Academy, as being the only school in Spain with its own aerodrome, comes with a bigger advantage above the rest, as the number of operations it conducts is highly superior. The fact of having its own aerodrome also allows centralizing all the education on the same spot, being Requena aerodrome where all the classrooms, aircrafts, simulators and student dorms are located.
