Becoming a pilot is one of the most important and exciting decisions you can make. Whether you are just beginning your research into pilot training, or you are ready to submit your application to become one of our cadets, we look forward to welcoming you to L3 and helping you to launch your Airline Pilot career.
Here at L3 we don't just give flying lessons, we foster an airline culture in our academies from day one. Every aspect of our training is designed to prepare you for your graduation from cadet pilot to Airline Pilot.
Why become a pilot?
Exhilaration of flying
Nothing comes close to the exhilaration of airline flying and the views from what could possibly be the best office in the world.
Variety and travel
No two days will be the same; you'll meet colleagues from all walks of life and fly hundreds of new customers each day. You'll experience new cities, landscapes and cultures throughout your career.
Did you know 151,500 additional pilots are required by 2022? Now is a great time to become a pilot where airline fleet numbers are expanding to meet the global demand.
From Co-Pilot to Captain, training and management – the career path of an Airline Pilot offers a promising, lucrative and established professional trajectory.
Almost all of our career programs based in the United Kingdom, Europe or New Zealand (EASA/NZCAA) and some of our pilot training programs in the United States (FAA) are designed to prepare you for becoming a Commercial Pilot. We work closely with airlines around the globe to place our graduates in the role of Co-Pilot on a passenger aircraft.
Some of our graduates choose to become Certified Flight Instructors, training the next generation of Pilots on the ground, in the sky and in our simulators. This type of work suits Pilots who prefer to be home-based as generally no overnight flying is required.Flight Instructor opportunities
