flying first option:

FTA Global is introducing a new ‘Flight Line First’ option to its Integrated Flight Deck Programme, allowing cadets more control over the order of training. Normally students complete 3 weeks of Foundation Training followed by 9 months of ATPL ground school before joining the flight line.  With the new Flying First option, the cadet would complete the three weeks of Foundation Training and then move directly to the flight line for three months before starting their 9 months of ATPL Ground School.  The cadets would then return to the flight line after completing ATPL Theory Ground School.

The ‘Flight Line First’ option is in response to some integrated graduates who felt they would have benefited from some flight experience before their ATPL theory training. This allows students without the benefit of previous flight training, to get some context around some of the big ATPL subjects, including Air Law, Instruments, Meteorology, Performance, Mass and Balance and Principles of Flight.  Three months of flight line training will bring the student to a natural pausing point to go into the classroom. 

Phil Jones, Head of Training at FTA says:

“After receiving feedback from our graduates, we felt we could offer integrated students some flying experience before sitting ATPL Ground School.  Different people have different learning styles, and to be able to offer a ‘flying first’ option can give some ‘hands on’ context to some of the ATPL theory syllabus.  Not everyone will want to do flying first so we feel it is important to offer the option and we believe this option is unique in the UK for an integrated course”.
