This is proving to be another incredible year for the Aviation Industry and the high demand for pilots is regularly documented in the press. With more and more aircraft on order for airlines increasing numbers of major airlines announcing bonded type-ratings.

Phil Jones, Head of Training at FTA, explains more about the present demand for pilots: “There is currently a huge demand for Pilots, and this trend shows no sign of slowing anytime soon. Boeing and Airbus, predict that we will need up to 34,000 each year, until 2035.”


The number of people training to become pilots is at a three year low, and the high, anticipated cost could be a reason for lack of people embarking on a career as a commercial pilot. Despite recent media reports, pilot training does not have to cost £120,000. At FTA we have been providing accessible and affordable flight training for over ten years, with both Modular and Integrated flight training solutions.

Our Integrated Courses start from £63,950 with fees paid over 12 months, an option which best suits those able to complete all their commercial pilot training, back to back in as little as 14 months.

Integrated commercial pilot training is perfect if your priority is completing the course in minimum time, for best possible value. However, to become a commercial pilot you do not need to complete the entirety of your pilot training in one go, nor at FTA.

Recruiting airlines will not discriminate between pilots that have completed the pilot training on a modular versus integrated route, and at FTA we offer ATPL courses at a pace that suits you.

Modular flight phases can be accommodated throughout the year and are paid for on a ‘pay as you fly basis’. More information about these is available here:


We offer a special price for a combined MEP, CPL and ME-IR training. The course package costs £24,950 and is available when the training is completed full time, back to back.

We conduct tours of our Campus at Brighton City Airport every Thursday at 10 am. To find out more about us and book your place on a tour, please click here.


This opportunity to win our David Clark headset will set you in fantastic stead for your career in aviation. The headsets are an industry favourite and are renowned for their excellent quality.

You have until Midnight on 25 July 2018 to enter the competition, so best of luck to you all.
