British Airways Future Pilot Program

L3 Airline Academy, in partnership with British Airways, provides training for the flagship and bespoke Future Pilot Program, leading to an exciting and varied flying career with British Airways commencing initially on the A320 series aircraft. The program is characterised by unique Training Sponsorship provided by both L3 Airline Academy and British Airways.


To ensure that the Future Pilot Program will attract a diverse range of applications from talented, aspiring pilots and future airline managers, British Airways will, where required, provide the support of a loan guarantee (subject to terms and conditions), to enable successful applicants to borrow required funding for the program from the BBVA bank.


This is a truly unique and accessible Airline Pilot career program which can enable you to take to the skies and embark upon an unrivalled career path with one of the best airlines in the world.
