Ryan explains his change of heart journey into becoming a pilot at FTA

Charlotte Berrystone23 May 2018

We recently talked to Ryan who is currently in the final stages of his training where he chose Option B of the Integrated Flight Deck Programme. Interestingly, Ryan had not always set out to become a pilot. Having turned down the opportunity to do a PPL when he was younger, Ryan had originally embarked on a degree in the US. Throughout the interview, is clear that Ryan is a very level-headed, committed student with a real passion for flying. As Ryan has elected to complete all his flight training in the UK he is someone you always see studying, revising and flight planning on campus.

Childhood dream becomes a reality for trainee pilot, James

Alexandra O'Loughlin06 Mar 2018

FTA Cadet James, explains how his training to become a pilot has been a dream since childhood. James is currently in the final phase of his training and has just started his Instrument Rating. 

James is unusual in that he chose to complete a high level of qualifications prior to embarking on his training and has a Masters in Aeronautical Engineering. To start your training you need to have at least 5 GCSEs including English and Math.

A'Levels are not required but preferred, but any academic qualifications, or extra research and reading you do will assist with your training. More information about entry requirements can be found here.

Some people are daunted by the academic demands of pilot training but for James it was the cost. The media often publish attention-grabbing deadlines which suggest that pilot training costs over £100,000. 

This is simply not the case and FTA's UK-based integrated pilot training programme, (which James enrolled on) currently costs £77,950. You can save further money still by enrolling on Option A of FTAs Integrated Pilot Training Programme which costs £63,950.
