To obtain an ATPL, you must

In addition, you will need to complete a training programme with a CAAS-approved Aviation Training Organisation to acquire theoretical knowledge and practical experience.  You must also pass the basic knowledge examinations and flight test administered by CAAS and meet all regulatory licensing requirements.
