What is it really like learning to fly?

You're sure to be inspired by our pilots. Training alongside others that share the same vision as you is an incredible experience. Not enough people are training to become pilots, and while the cost is the most significant barrier for many, we are lucky to meet those whose relentless drive to become a pilot ensures they will be undeterred in the pursuit of their dreams. 


Training at FTA Global

Six months of your essential training to become a pilot takes place in a classroom. In this video, we meet Ashley and Jack who are midway through their integrated commercial pilot training and finalising their studies in ATPL Theory. In this video we have tried to capture the atmosphere you will experience first hand as a student at FTA. Any pilot will tell you that to be successful in the training you need to demonstrate resilience, hard work, patience and self-assurance. Meet the students doing just that at FTA...
