Do I need a degree to become an airline pilot?

Alexandra O'Loughlin27 Aug 2020

We speak to lots of students who are undecided about whether to pursue their dream of becoming an airline pilot - despite it being a dream from a young age.

It is not uncommon to hear students question whether they should first pursue a degree, on the basis that they 'want something to fall back on'. 

A degree has a lot of value, but it is not required to embark on your pilot training. Read on to learn more about how you may identify whether you have what it takes to become a pilot.

What is an Airline Pilot Standards (APS) Programme?

Alexandra O'Loughlin25 Aug 2020

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.

Integrated vs. Modular – which is the best way to get your frozen ATPL?

Alexandra O'Loughlin14 Mar 2018

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.
