All of our training programs are self-funded by way of either savings or a loan secured typically against a UK property. We ourselves are not able to offer any financial advice however, we would suggest that potential candidates speak with their families and a variety of banks, lenders and independent financial advisers who will be best placed to discuss the products that may be available.
Our Training Standard provides you with peace of mind throughout training. It’s our commitment to you that by passing our selection process, we believe you’ve got the right stuff to make it as a Commercial Pilot, and we’ll go the extra mile to get you there.
If you require training over and above that set out in Table A, such further training shall be payable in full by yourself at the point that you require it. Please note our Training Standard is not included in our Integrated ATPL Essential course.
