We are delighted to have officially reopened our main building and the heart of our flight school, Wingfield House.

We spoke with Integrated student Lewis, who has just finished his time in Ground School. He spoke to us about his experience with learning remotely during quarantine and his motivation for becoming a pilot.
We speak to lots of A Level students who are undecided about whether to pursue their dream of becoming a pilot. So often we hear that they are pondering whether they should go to university and study towards a degree ‘just in case’ they need something to fall back on.
Integrated Flight Deck Programmes
If you want to complete your training in under 2 years and can access the funds to pay £77,950 over 12 months then this is absolutely the right option for you.
The quicker you can complete your training, the quicker you can apply for roles within airlines and start work as a First Officer. Students that choose this route are typically able to fund this with finance from parents, inheritance, secured loans – or a combination of the above.
With FTA you have the option to pay for your course over 12 months. If you were to enrol on FTA's Integrated Flight Deck Programme today, for example, you pay an initial payment of £14,000 and the remaining balance over 12 months.The course fee includes all your airport fees, uniform, books, instruction, tests and flight time. The only items you need to fund separately are any repeated phases, and tests. Your accommodation is funded by you too, although support is given to find the right arrangement for you whether it’s a student house, hotel, hosted family or apartment. If integrated training is not viable for you, you can elect to study on a modular basis and it is practical.
The last item has been packed away and finally the lid is closed on another successful Pilot Careers Live (PCL) event.
This weekend we will be exhibiting once again at Pilot Careers Live. The event seems to grow year on year and on Saturday 4 November we anticipate more delegates than ever before.
We spoke to integrated student Julie about her journey to becoming a pilot.
Within minutes of meeting with Julie, it’s easy to see why she is training with the flight school today. Julie went solo in 10 hours and has already proven her ability as a strong pilot with great promise.
