Why FTA?

We are conscious that this is one of the biggest decisions you will make and it's important to us that you know that when you enrol, you know where and when your training will take place. But also, that the greatest care has given to ensure that you receive the best training.

We have delivered commercial pilot training for almost 15 years and during this time have continually looked for opportunities to develop and improve what we do. This is why we have launched this new, all encompassing course and why all our training is now conducted in the UK.

Here is what we believe is important:

Students come first


Student safety, welfare and satisfaction are at the heart of everything we do.


High teaching standards


A first-time pass looks good on your CV and saves money in potential retakes. We do everything we can to help you pass the first time.

Respect for the profession


We know the importance of ensuring you're airline ready. Our courses and partners in delivering flight instruction support our goal to make you the best pilot you can be. 

Invest in what matters


We have state-of-the-art aircraft, modern simulators and the best training staff in the industry.

Everyone is different


Not everyone learns at the same pace. We vary our teaching methods to get the very best from every student.

Open to all


We believe we all have what it takes, it is just about the right support, opportunity and school.
