Fresh from completing his first Progress Test at our Satellite Campus in Teruel, Spain, we spoke to our student Aman Khanal about his journey so far and what is next in store for his training:
It’s been 18 months since we first released our statistical analysis on the throughput of cadets. Here we revisit the latest statistics released by the CAA and question how the numbers stack up.
I joined the air cadets at aged 13. You get to fly about once a year and that was my first experience of flying.
Look to pilot training for an exciting alternative to university…
If you’ve not got the A’Level results you expected then please do not be despondent. Maybe there is an alternative to university you've just not considered yet?
The path to university is likely to be one you’ve considered since completing your GCSEs, and it can be an exciting adventure. The downside is, of course, the cost and the competitive graduate job market.
Pilot training could be the alternative you perhaps never considered. You don’t need to be an expert in aeronautics, an air cadet or have a degree in Mathematics. The pathway to becoming a commercial pilot has never been more straightforward. So before you head into the stress and panic that characterises ‘clearing’ perhaps take a step back and consider a completely different option.
The entry requirements for pilot training at FTA are as follows:
- 5 GCSEs (including Maths and English)
- 2 A’Levels (preferred but not required)
- be aged 18 or above
- Possess an EASA class 1 medical certificate
