What is it like to train at FTA?
Nine months of your essential training to become a pilot takes place in a classroom. In this video we have tried to capture the atmosphere you will experience first hand as a student at FTA. Any pilot will tell you that to be successful in the training you need to demonstrate resilience, hard work, patience and self-assurance. Meet the students doing just that at FTA...
FTA Instructor Video
Have you ever been curious about what skills and abilities are required to become a flight instructor? Perhaps you've never given it a second thought, our suggestion is that you should. A good instructor will share many of the same qualities required of any pilot. You need to have a love of flying, you need to be experienced and possess a curious mind with a continuous thirst to learn more. We asked some of our experienced instructors the important question, why be a flight instructor?
