TRAINING ROUTES

 

Integrated Route:

A full time, ‘Zero to ATPL’, residential course at an approved Flight Training Organisation (FTO). The integrated course usually takes about 14-18 months to complete, with pilots usually staring with zero flying hours and graduating with a ‘frozen’ ATPL, at which point they can apply to work for an airline. The integrated course has the benefit of ensuring that the cadet pilot experiences continuity throughout their training and some FTO’s do provide support with initial employment; however, this route is generally the most expensive at £100,000+.

 

Modular Route:

This training route breaks down the syllabus into individual components, PPL, Night Rating, ATPL ground school exams, CPL/IR & MCC. This gives the student increased flexibility as they can choose when and where they study each component and allows those who are unable to commit financially to a full-time course work and train at the same time. Whilst the training can take longer to complete, it is usually cheaper with costs generally between £30,000 – £50,000.

 

Multi-Crew Pilots Licence (MPL):

The Multi-Crew Pilot Licence incorporates airline specific Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) from an early stage and requires an airline to mentor pre-selected cadets through a bespoke course and into type, base and line training on a specific aircraft. The training is competency-based and replaces the traditional syllabus. Training takes about 14-18 months full time and whilst the costs are similar to integrated training, it has the benefit of leading directly to a job with the airline that has mentored the cadet.
