Integrated Flight Deck Programmes
If you want to complete your training in under 2 years and can access the funds to pay £77,950 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 work 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 FTA's Integrated Flight Deck Programme 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 integrated training is not viable for you, you can elect to study on a modular basis and it is practical.
The last item has been packed away and finally the lid is closed on another successful Pilot Careers Live (PCL) event.
This weekend we will be exhibiting once again at Pilot Careers Live. The event seems to grow year on year and on Saturday 4 November we anticipate more delegates than ever before.
We spoke to integrated student Julie about her journey to becoming a pilot. Julie has recently started training with FTA on Option A of the Integrated Flight Deck Programme.
Within minutes of meeting with her, it’s easy to see why she is training with the flight school today. Julie went solo within 10 hours and has already proven her ability as a strong pilot with great promise.
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:
A question we often get asked is: "What is the maximum age to start my pilot training?"
The simple answer is: there isn’t one. Pilot roles within the aviation industry are endless.
We speak to lots of A’Level students who are undecided about whether to pursue their dream of becoming a pilot. So often we hear that they are pondering whether they should go to university and study towards a degree ‘just in case’ they need something to fall back on.
FTA Graduate, Chris Metcalf explains how he funded his pilot training and was able to pursue what was once just a dream. As he looks to the future, at roles within airlines, he reflects on what he has accomplished despite some painful setbacks in his youth.
Jonathan Candelon, Managing Director of FTA, presents important tips when looking for a flying school.
Flying is one of the most rewarding, exhilarating and enjoyable experiences you can have. But with so many commercial pilot training schools out there, how do you find the right one for you? The best way to choose a school is to go and visit. Each school offers a different training environment and facilities, plus the courses may vary in terms of structure. Decide which course you want to do, research and asks lots of questions. But before you arrange your visit, here are some other things to consider.
