Earlier this month we hosted an online discussion panel regarding modular and integrated pilot training. Our panel of students and pilots answered your questions on the difference between the two routes and the benefits they have enjoyed, training via their preferred route.
First, let us introduce our panel:
"We all say that we are certain Martyn built aviation in his back garden. He has an incredible amount of knowledge that you can tell he enjoys passing on to others. No question in the classroom is ever left unanswered and he is always happy to explain in that extra bit of detail if you’re finding it hard to understand something" - Chloe, FTA Student.
We are pleased to announce that we will freeze the price of our modular training for all ab initio students who embark on their PPL this year.
The rollercoaster of lockdowns over last 12 months may have meant a hiatus in your dreams. With the industry expecting a recovery over two years and the training taking the same length of time, it is time for change.
Apart from a brief closure in 2020, our flight school has remained open and operational throughout the pandemic. With everyone's social calendars on hold as we start 2021 (and therefore a significant lack of distractions) we think that the time for enrolling with the right flight school is now.
Our full-time programme, an EASA Integrated Flight Deck Programme (FDP), takes two years to complete and starts with theoretical instruction. ATPL Theory at FTA Global is like nothing else in the industry. Outside of instructor-led lessons you will access computer-based training and online books to support with self study. Last year we extended the study period to improve subject comprehension and ensure high results.
"I was really pleased with my results and have finished ground school with 14 first-time passes and an overall average of 91%."
It worked. Our ATPL classes continued throughout 2020 using this software, and our students successfully completed their exams with high pass rates and averages, despite the pandemic. The first module of 2021 is being delivered using Microsoft Teams, a video conferencing software, and our plan is to bring everyone on site as soon as it is safe to do so.
We spoke to FTA student Dan about his experience as a cadet.
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.
We united with three of Europe’s leading Approved Training Organisations (ATOs) in support of the pilot training industry and to demonstrate the duty of care provided to every trainee. Please scroll down to read the full press release.
Hannah has recently become a pilot for Lauda. Hannah completed her training by what's called as the 'modular route' complete each flight phase it its entirety, back to back. We were fortunate to get to know Hannah when she enrolled on our MEP, ME IR ME CPL course package (advanced flight training).
