We hosted our FTA Open Day on Saturday which was a great success; including a seminar hosted by a TUI Captain.
We spoke to Kaveri this week who is currently on our Integrated Flight Deck Programme. Kaveri explains what it's like being a female pilot in the aviation industry and why she chose FTA as her flight training provider.
Kate takes us through her motivation to become a pilot and her experience training.
When did you decide you wanted to be a pilot? What was it that first sparked your interest in aviation and becoming a pilot?
We recently caught up with Isabelle who is about to start the next phase of her pilot training with us - the Full Advanced Package. She explained why she decided to come to FTA and her passion for becoming a pilot.
International Women's Day is a global day which celebrates the social, cultural, economic, and political achievements of women. As well as being a day for celebration, a significant part of the day is also making a call to action for accelerating women's equality.
Aviation is an industry where both of these elements of International Women’s Day can be seen. Great strides have been taken and achieved for female pilots, however, indisputably, more can and needs to be done to ensure that there is true equality in the aviation industry. - Only 5.8% of the world’s airline pilots are female (The International Society of Women Airline Pilots (ISA+21).
