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 £66,950 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 £66,950) or the alternative, Option B (priced at £79,950) of the  integrated training is not viable for you, you can elect to study on a modular basis and it is practical.
