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”. He explains his gratitude for finding a role that enables him to continue with learning and progressing his aviation knowledge. FTA Global reward excellence and sponsor employees to increase their experience and progress with their career. First, he tells about how it all started:
Ibiza DJ - turned commercial pilot Sarah is one of FTA's longest serving employees. Sarah has worked at FTA as an instructor since the beginning where she is popular with all students and staff. She took time from her busy schedule to share her advice for those considering the career.
Experienced pilot and First Officer Jerome, talks us through his unexpected journey to becoming a First Officer for Ryanair and how he’ll never lose his love for teaching.
We sat down with FTA trainee pilot Nathan after he’d just finished his ATPL exams and discussed his journey to becoming a pilot.
A few months ago, we welcomed a new member to our Student Services team, George. We spoke with him to discuss his job role and give us an insight into student welfare and support.
We managed to get some of Tim's time, a modular student from FTA who since completing his training, has been pretty much non stop.
Soon after finishing his advanced pilot training at FTA, he went into a role as a calibration pilot and travelled around the world. He's now secured a First Officer position with easyJet and realised his dream of becoming an airline pilot.
Tim has worked extremely hard to be where he is now. He once worked in Air Traffic at Brighton City Airport while completing his training, a job which is in itself a demanding role. However, he made it work and completed his training at the end of 2016 before swapping his headset in air traffic control for a seat in an aircraft as a commercial pilot. It's been our pleasure to be part of his story and we hope to stay in touch with Tim as he progresses through his career.
