We hosted our FTA Open Day on Saturday which was a great success; including a seminar hosted by a TUI Captain.
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).

Last weekend we ran our final open afternoon of the summer. These events were organised with the sole aim of informing aspiring pilots everything they need to know about life as a pilot.
Last year, the UK weather was amazing, and 2021 has been no different. In the past two months, our students have collectively accumulated the highest number of flying hours the company has ever seen. The total hours for March and April 2021 were double that of the same time last year - and indeed the summer of any year!
Congratulations on choosing to become a commercial pilot. As exciting as it is, we know the training can be very daunting. We have put together a guide to help you prepare for your training.

Ben had planned to fly in the military but the realisation that he would need glasses as a teen, meant reconsidering his options. Already familiar with handling adversity, Ben made a positive decision about his pilot career.
Earlier this year, we launched an emotional video and it has yielded unexpected results.
It's unusual for competing ATOs to launch joint press statements, however this is exactly what happened this week.

The Airline Pilot Standards programme is held in high regard by major airlines who recognise the need for pilots to demonstrate a broader set of competencies such as leadership and teamwork, situational awareness, problem solving and decision making.
Our APS/MCC course (delivered by our training partners Jet Masterclass) sets out to achieve the highest possible exit standard, including unrivalled manual flying technique, ample spare capacity to manage inflight non-normal scenarios, and the broadest possible skill set to pass any airline assessment and transition to the airlines with ease.
