  • How long does Airline pilot training take?

      The length of your airline pilot training will vary depending on the course you select.

      Typically, an Integrated ATPL course take anywhere between 18 and 24 months to complete.

      Modular ATPL courses on the other hand offer greater flexibility and cadets have the three years to complete training once they have passed their theoretical knowledge exams.

  • What criteria do I need to meet to apply for Airline pilot training?

      Our entry criteria determines the minimum requirements to start pilot training. Including: being 18 years old to start training, holding a minimum of 5 GCSEs grade C / 4 or above (or international equivalent), be able to pass an EASA Class 1 Medical and have the right to live and work in EEA and Switzerland or be able to obtain a Tier 4 Visa.

  • Am I guaranteed a job at the end of my pilot training?

      You are not necessarily guaranteed a job at the end of your pilot training course. However, with an airline programme before commencement of training you will be given a conditional offer of employment outlining the standard of your performance which must be met through your training for you to go into employment with the airline.

      At L3Harris Airline Academy we have a dedicated placement pool which is committed to preparing and helping you to secure a role at a Co-Pilot.
