You can complete your commercial pilot training and achieve a frozen ATPL on a module-by-module basis. We have created a handy timeline to illustrate the training you need to complete, in what order.
The duration depends on you, but generally this route takes around two years to complete full-time. The total cost of completing your training via this route is around £78,000*.
If you have already completed your PPL, Hour Building and ATPL Theory, you may choose to take advantage of our special course price on the MEP, ME IR and ME CPL. If you complete your MEP, ME IR and ME CPL flight phases with us, full time and back to back (in the specified order) you will pay just £26,195. Please contact us for more details.
We interviewed Matt, who has recently joined FTA instructing the ATPL Theory. Popular and enthusiastic Matt has wasted no time in making the role his own. Not long out of university, it could be daunting for a recent graduate to standing in front of a class of 15 or 20 students explaining the principles of flight such as lift augmentation or aerodynamic limitations. Still, he loves it: “I like to know I’m helping others understand and revise the content, it’s a great feeling”. He explains his gratitude for finding a role that enables him to continue with learning and progressing his aviation knowledge. FTA Global reward excellence and sponsor employees to increase their experience and progress with their career. First, he tells about how it all started:
How important is your social media activity and what impact can it have on your career prospects? The experts argue – a lot!
From the end of this year it will become mandatory for student pilots to complete Upset Prevention Recovery Training (UPRT).
The legislation (which comes in to place on 20 December 2019) requires cadets to complete UPRT for single-pilot high-performance complex aeroplanes, single-pilot aeroplanes in multi-pilot operations and multi-pilot aeroplanes.
We are pleased to announce that we now have an additional three spaces available on our June 2020 Integrated Flight Deck Programme.
Our full-time courses get booked up further and further in advance and it is rare to be able to sign up to one of our Flight Deck Programmes less than 12 months in advance.
Our aim is to help you to make the most informed choice for your pilot training.
