Ryan explains his change of heart journey into becoming a pilot at FTA

Charlotte Berrystone23 May 2018

We recently talked to Ryan who is currently in the final stages of his training where he chose Option B of the Integrated Flight Deck Programme. Interestingly, Ryan had not always set out to become a pilot. Having turned down the opportunity to do a PPL when he was younger, Ryan had originally embarked on a degree in the US. Throughout the interview, is clear that Ryan is a very level-headed, committed student with a real passion for flying. As Ryan has elected to complete all his flight training in the UK he is someone you always see studying, revising and flight planning on campus.

Integrated vs. Modular – which is the best way to get your frozen ATPL?

Alexandra O'Loughlin14 Mar 2018

Integrated Flight Deck Programmes

If you want to complete your training in under 2 years and can access the funds to pay from £63,950 over 12 months then this is absolutely the right option for you.

 

The quicker you can complete your training, the quicker you can apply for roles within airlines and start earning from £25,000 as a First Officer. Students that choose this route are typically able to fund this with finance from parents, inheritance, secured loans – or a combination of the above.

With FTA you have the option to pay for your course over 12 months. If you were to enrol on one of FTAs Integrated Flight Deck Programmes today, for example, you pay an initial payment of £14,000 and the remaining balance over 12 months.

The course fee includes all your airport fees, uniform, books, instruction, tests and flight time. The only items you need to fund separately are any repeated phases, and tests. Your accommodation is funded by you too, although support is given to find the right arrangement for you whether it’s a student house, hotel, hosted family or apartment. If Option A (priced at £63,950) or the alternative, Option B (priced at £77,950) of the  integrated training is not viable for you, you can elect to study on a modular basis and it is practical.
