Win A David Clark H10-13.4 headset worth £335 

We are teaming up with Europe's leading Pilot shop and flight equipment supplier Transair to give you the chance to win a David Clark H10-13.4 headset worth £335

To be in with a chance of winning this exciting gift, all you have to do is 'Like' our page and 'Share' any of the competition posts on Facebook. 


At FTA we have been providing accessible and affordable flight training for the past 10 years in the South Coast of England, ranging from Modular flight training to Integrated flight training.

2017 is proving to be another flourishing year in the Aviation Industry and with the recent expansion of our training facilities with the introduction of our Spanish Campus in Teruel, we have once again pushed the boundaries in allowing for even more affordable flight training. With more and more aircraft on order for airlines such as Ryanair, recruitment is at an all time high, meaning positions for newly qualified Pilots are ever more present. 

Jonathan Candelon, Managing Director of FTA, spoke recently about the high demand for Pilots in the present economic market: "There is currently a huge demand for Pilots and this trend shows no sign of slowing anytime soon. The likes of Boeing and Airbus have predicted that we will need as many as 617,000 new Pilots by 2035. That's approximately 34,000 new Pilots a year!" 

don't pay over £120,000 TO BECOME A QUALIFIED PILOT 

For many people though, it is the financing that is proving a large burden to bear. Candelon responded "Despite recent media reports, Pilot training does not have to cost £120,000. At FTA, we pride ourselves on making Pilot training as accessible as possible to students. Our Integrated Courses start from as little as £63,950 and the fee is payable over 12 months, meaning that there are no large up front payments. We feel this mitigates the financial risk of training and offers a more suitable payment plan".

Special offers on modular training packages

We also offer a special combined MEP, CPL and ME-IR Course for Modular students which costs £24,950.

We conduct tours of our Campus at Brighton City Airport every Thursday at 10:00am. To find out more about us and book your place on a tour, click here.

This amazing opportuinity to win our David Clark headset will set you in fantastic stead for your budding career in aviation. The headsets are an industry favourite and are renowned for their excellent quality.

You have until Midnight on 31 October 2017 to enter the competition, so best of luck to you all.
