Infection is not limited to pandemics: sometimes it is a positive thing. Fredricka explains how her dad's love of aviation became infectious. Now in the final stages of her training, she has kept both her parents happy by training to be a pilot whilst maintaining her love and care for horses.
Our customers are at the centre of everything we do. As part of our ongoing commitment to deliver elite flight training for professional pilots we are expanding our range of programmes.
Starting a new job can be daunting at the best of times. How about start a new job, in a new industry, during a global pandemic?
This is exactly what our new intern Lottie did last year. after her work placement in Sydney Australia was cancelled (due to Covid-19 travel restrictions).
Lottie was originally destined for Sydney Australia, but when her university plans couldn't go ahead in 2020 she explored her options and applied for an internship with FTA.
The rollercoaster of lockdowns over last 12 months may have meant a hiatus in your dreams. With the industry expecting a recovery over two years and the training taking the same length of time, it is time for change.
Apart from a brief closure in 2020, our flight school has remained open and operational throughout the pandemic. With everyone's social calendars on hold as we start 2021 (and therefore a significant lack of distractions) we think that the time for enrolling with the right flight school is now.
Our full-time programme, an EASA Integrated Flight Deck Programme (FDP), takes two years to complete and starts with theoretical instruction. ATPL Theory at FTA Global is like nothing else in the industry. Outside of instructor-led lessons you will access computer-based training and online books to support with self study. Last year we extended the study period to improve subject comprehension and ensure high results.
"I was really pleased with my results and have finished ground school with 14 first-time passes and an overall average of 91%."
It worked. Our ATPL classes continued throughout 2020 using this software, and our students successfully completed their exams with high pass rates and averages, despite the pandemic. The first module of 2021 is being delivered using Microsoft Teams, a video conferencing software, and our plan is to bring everyone on site as soon as it is safe to do so.
