*The ATPL theory can be taken in the variants ATPL/VFR and ATPL/IR. The latter variant contains the entire instrument flight theory. The subject 092 "IR-Communications" is added, which is missing in the ATPL/VFR variant. Deeper IR material also complements other subjects such as instrumentation and radio navigation.
