The number of people training to be a pilot is not keeping up with demand. The anticipated growth of the industry means more pilots, technicians, engineers and crew are in higher demand that ever before.

The cost of training is high but like anything, it pays to shop around to find the right training provider and solution for you.

At FTA, not only will you be taught by professional, experienced instructors, but you will learn in a supportive and friendly environment which places you at the heart of all its activities.

Whilst we ensure standardisation in our teaching we understand that everyone is different. Students learn in different ways and we work hard to accommodate that.

Only a few other jobs give such great career prospects, with chances to have some of the highest qualifications in the aviation industry even before their thirties."

Modular Training

If intensive training is simply not feasible then you can complete each module of your pilot training one stage at a time. We offer all stages of the commercial pilot training on a modular basis and we offer excellent value, especially when you complete the MEP, IR and ME CPL back to back (and in that order). This three course package costs £26,195 and enrolment is possible throughout the year.

If you decide that modular training, with opportunity to 'pay as you fly' works best for you, then the training you need to complete is as follows:
