Email: enquiries@aircelle.com

Established in 1947 and re-branded as Safran – Aircelle in 2010, despite having long since been a supplier of products to companies such as Rolls-Royce and Airbus, the Company’s product and service capability profile has changed significantly during this 50-60 year period. During the 1970’s, manufacturing carried out at the site was mainly that which had been designed elsewhere, but during the 1980’s and into the 1990’s, the business developed its own design capability and concurrently, began to exploit the business opportunities that were starting to emerge in complex composite manufacture. A new Executive Team was established, along with a focus upon high quality and positive leadership of employees and this accelerated the business transformation.

Apprentice development has been a key feature of the last three years and Aircelle Limited now has thirty two apprentices at various stages of their programmes, all of whom study for skilled/professional qualifications at College or University during their course. Through The Manufacturing Institute, practical challenges and events, such as “The Make It Challenge” for teenage schoolchildren in the North West have been sponsored in recent years. All of this activity links to the business’ strategically focused corporate social responsibility plan, which aims to support local regeneration of the economy, education and society within the local area.

The APA Integrated course takes students with little or no previous flying experience to a Commercial Pilot’s License (CPL) with a Multi-Engine Instrument Rating (MEIR) referred to as the ‘frozen’ ATPL. The course also includes a Multi Crew Co-operation (MCC) course, which is required to proceed to Type Rating.  Once type training has been completed, pilots can be employed as a First Officer with an airline.

Graduate pilots with a ‘frozen’ ATPL are free to train to any aircraft type and to fly for any airline that will accept their national license. Most airlines will initially assign new First Officers to “short haul” fleets so they can build experience in the more demanding departure and approach phases of flight. Once an ATPL holder has gained 1,500 hours experience, the ATPL becomes ‘unfrozen’ and they are then eligible to be considered for promotion.

Elite Integrated ATPL

Key Characteristics:

- Small Class Sizes
- Premium Training Guarantee
- Airline Focused training from day 1
- Integrated Ground and Flight Training
- Airline Fundamentals Training integrated into the programme taught by highly  experienced pilots
- All Multi Engine Training completed in UK
- Upset Recovery Training taught in aircraft and Jet Simulators
- Competency Based MCC & JOC Training delivered on A320 & B737 Simulators

Airline Pilot Academy has training facilities located in Bournemouth, Utrecht (Netherlands) and Melbourne (Florida).

Flight Training Europe

FTEJerez is a dedicated aviation and airline pilot training academy with a long history of successfully training ab initio pilots to be the present and future captains for a wide range of prominent airlines such as Aer Lingus, British Airways, BA CityFlyer, Cityjet, Emirates, Flybe, Qatar Airways, Vueling and many more.

In order to become an airline pilot, you must obtain the highest level of aircraft pilot certification: an Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL). It includes ATPL theory (14 EASA subjects), a Commercial Pilot’s Licence and Instrument Rating (CPL/IR) and a Multi-Crew Cooperation Course (MCC).

This licence allows you to work as a First Officer with an airline once you have completed a specific aircraft type training course, and in time become a captain.

In order to obtain the ATPL, you can follow either the integrated or modular training route.

Integrated Training:

Integrated training takes cadets with little or no flying experience up to successful completion of the course, at which point the cadet will be issued with an EASA frozen ATPL. FTEJerez’s Airline First Officer Programme (AFOP) falls under this category, which is highly valued by airlines.

Modular Training:

Modular training, on the other hand, is designed for students who wish to train at their own pace, whilst combining their training with a job or studies in a flexible manner. FTEJerez offers candidates who have decided to follow this training route the possibility of enrolling on one of our Combined CPL/IR courses. They can also complete their training with the ATPL’s final module, the MCC or JOC.

FTA is currently one of the only UK flight training academies to teach all of its Integrated flight training entirely in the UK. Based at Brighton City Airport, the home of the UK’s oldest licensed airport founded in 1910, and the site of the first commercial flight in Britain.

Today, over a century later, students from across the globe come to the South Coast of England to train as commercial pilots. They learn to fly our state-of-the-art fleet of DA40 Star and DA42 Twin Star aircraft, which feature the same systems found in modern airliner flight decks, including EFIS, ADC, FADEC and GNSS instruments.

Integrated Training:

FTA have a selection of training programmes to suit every individual. Our most popular course takes students with little or no flying experience to a “Frozen ATPL” in 14-16 months. This enables you to apply for a First Officer role at any commercial airline.

Once you gain 1,500 hours’ experience, your ATPL becomes ‘unfrozen’ and you are eligible to be promoted to Captain by your employer airline. This full-time, integrated course is the preferred training route for most airlines.

FTA runs the Flight Deck Programme continuously throughout the year.

Modular Training:

An alternative to FTA’s Integrated Flight Deck Programme is to take a modular course.

If you’re looking for a career as a commercial airline pilot, this approach still allows you to go from Zero to Frozen ATPL, but enables you to set the pace. This is a popular choice for students who want to alternate between training and part- or full-time employment.

You can also simply take individual courses, such as the Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL), subject to meeting the course pre-requisites.

We aim to help our students to develop the skills and understanding that will allow them to build a successful career. A range of teaching methods are used including problem-based-learning, traditional lectures, laboratories, modern computer simulations, design-build-test exercises and individual projects. Our aim is that each module will have a significant amount of active learning. The main aerospace topics of aerodynamics, flight dynamics, avionics, aerostructures and materials are all taught by staff who undertake leading research in their field. A design project later in the degree provides experience in integrating these topics into a flying prototype. Teaching at Liverpool is supported by the newly built active learning laboratory, flight simulators, computers and wind tunnels.

Our emphasis on active learning throughout our taught programmes is captured in our 'Liverpool Engineer' moto, 'To simulate the active learning of sound engineering principles and practices within an environment which fosters creativity, innovation and professionalism' The Liverpool Engineer is a phrase intended to encapsulate the special nature of a graduate from any of the programmes offered by the Department of Engineering - an engineering education distinctive in the way students engage activity, through design and make, with their learning process.

Air travel is the most rapidly expanding form of public transport at this time with passenger levels predicted to increase significantly over the next few years. This means that the likely demand for aircrew will grow during this period. Consequently the potential demand for new pilots qualified to enter airline service is also high.

To take advantage of this you will need to have what is known in the industry as an Airline Transport Pilots Licence (ATPL). To obtain a ATPL the student must have passed all of the theoretical knowledge examinations and obtained a Commercial Pilot Licence and Instrument Rating (CPL/IR). Westbeach Flight Academy is fully equipped and staffed to provide all your flying training requirements to achieve this vital qualification.
