  • First course start date is 22 February 2021
  • Start this month and complete your training this Spring
  • All graduates will have the opportunity to interview for a role at FTA

We are pleased to announce the launch of Flight Instructor training this month. This the third addition to an already broad range of flight training programmes.

Flight Instructors are sought after by airlines and schools. The rating is popular with those that enjoy teaching, have a passion for flying and like the stability of a Monday to Friday rota. Your first opportunity to enrol in 2021 is 22 February, and the flight training is delivered over a four day week with additional self study. 

Train for a job you love - every day

Tom, an advanced flight instructor at FTA explains what he loves about his job: 'I feel so lucky to be paid for what feels more like a hobby, than a job. I get to share my passion for flying on a daily basis with like-minded students and I’m constantly learning whilst gaining experience.’ 

We have 15 years experience of delivering commercial flight training, during which we have built a reputation of excellent teaching standards and student satisfaction. The new instructor course reinforces the company’s position as a world-class provider of UK-based programmes.  

Sean Jacob, Managing Director for FTA Global, explains why he’s excited about the launch:

Alexandra O'Loughlin09 Dec 2019

We interviewed Matt, who has recently joined FTA instructing the ATPL Theory. Popular and enthusiastic Matt has wasted no time in making the role his own. Not long out of university, it could be daunting for a recent graduate to standing in front of a class of 15 or 20 students explaining the principles of flight such as lift augmentation or aerodynamic limitations. Still, he loves it: “I like to know I’m helping others understand and revise the content, it’s a great feeling”.
