Considering your next move after A-Levels, how about pilot training?

A-level results: What's next?

You’ve completed your A-Levels but not sure what to do next? You could prepare yourself for the world of work, study for a degree or travel the world – there are so many choices. Well, at L3Harris Airline Academy we believe you can have it all. We’ve been launching the careers of aspiring pilots for over 25 years.

Becoming a commercial airline pilot is a truly rewarding career and full of benefits. You’ll be a vital part of an important team, travelling the world with views from your office window that will be the envy of friends and family!

On average it takes 18 months to two years to qualify as a commercial pilot, which not only gives the aviation industry time to recover from recent global events, but means you could be flying for a major airline and earning a competitive pilot salary sooner than if you choose university.

By choosing one of our cadet pilot programmes, you will receive the training needed to qualify to become a pilot with one of the world’s leading commercial airlines. Learn more about our airline pilot training funding options.
