We sat down with FTA trainee pilot Nathan after he’d just finished his ATPL exams and discussed his journey to becoming a pilot.
A few months ago, we welcomed a new member to our Student Services team, George. We spoke with him to discuss his job role and give us an insight into student welfare and support.
We managed to get some of Tim's time, a modular student from FTA who since completing his training, has been pretty much non stop.
Soon after finishing his advanced pilot training at FTA, he went into a role as a calibration pilot and travelled around the world. He's now secured a First Officer position with easyJet and realised his dream of becoming an airline pilot.
Tim has worked extremely hard to be where he is now. He once worked in Air Traffic at Brighton City Airport while completing his training, a job which is in itself a demanding role. However, he made it work and completed his training at the end of 2016 before swapping his headset in air traffic control for a seat in an aircraft as a commercial pilot. It's been our pleasure to be part of his story and we hope to stay in touch with Tim as he progresses through his career.
