Our Students come to us looking to gain 10-12 hours of logged flight experience so they are able to apply for a cadetship, while others seek to continue their training and gain a Private Pilots licence and fly their families around the countryside. Many, however, are looking to go further and become a Commercial Pilot so they can work as at an airline or for a charter company.
Careful consideration of the options available will help you decide how far you will take your training, on your terms.
The 150 Hour Integrated Commercial Pilot Licence (A) syllabus, is less flexible than the other options. The course is intensive and runs to a full-time timetable. As it is considered a Vocational Education Training course, it has other benefits. Contact us for more information.
