What is the course?

Our advanced training has always proved highly sought after by modular students. In the majority of cases, students that completed their ATPL Theory instruction have chosen to stay on at FTA and complete their flight training. This package is designed to make this process easier and allows you to book all your advanced training at the same time and with the same provider, meaning you can be sure your training is booked to run continuously. It includes our recently extended and enhanced Classroom Based ATPL theory course which features blended learning using Padpilot eBooks and daily one to one instructor lead revision sessions (Option 1) or Distance Learning with BGS training allowing you to undertake your ATPL Theory at a pace and place of your choosing (Option 2).

The course also includes all advanced flight training suitable for people aiming for the airlines or other commercial operations. It includes MEP, MEIR, CPL, Advance UPRT, RT and English Examinations, Airline Professional Preparation and CV Writing workshops, as well as a certified elitePILOT ™ Airline Readiness Programme which is an enhanced Multi Crew Co-operation training to Airline Pilot Standards (APS MCC). It is designed to ‘bridge’ pilots from fATPL to multi-pilot jet type rating and incorporates advanced swept-wing jet handling and airline operations scenario training. The MCC / APS takes place at Jet Masterclass on their Level D Fixed Base 737-800 simulator with Fidelity Controlled Loading on all flight controls, full Boeing Data Pack, 200x40 field of view visual system with Level D image generators and also includes time on full motion simulators.

All flight instruction is delivered by our experienced, standardised staff who are focused on making you the best pilot you can be. We have been delivering modular training for over 16 years and so are very experienced in helping those who have trained in multiple schools or locations to transition to more precision flying required to gain a commercial licence. 

You will complete this course with all the knowledge, skills and expertise to apply for first officer roles with airlines, regardless of when or how you originally embarked on your flight training.
