Fully Sponsored Flight Instructor Program

Successful applicants will be sponsored by L3 Commercial Training Solutions to become Multi-Engine Instrument Rating and Class Rating Instructors (IRI and CRI), receiving a salary from the commencement of training.


As a flight instructor apprentice with us, you will join our team of highly qualified instructors responsible for delivering flight training for our world-renowned career programs as well as our modular professional pilot training courses.


The program includes three years as an employed flight instructor at our Crew Training Center – Bournemouth, UK. A visit to our Crew Training Center – Hamilton, New Zealand, is planned as part of your development, and you will also benefit from attending our airline standard Type Rating Instructor Core course as well as our industry-leading Airline Qualification Course (which incorporates the Multi-Crew Cooperation Certificate – MCC) in the process.


At the end of your development period, you may choose to continue working for L3 Commercial Training Solutions as part of our dedicated instructor team with potential relocation opportunities to our Crew Training Centers in New Zealand or the United States. Alternatively, if you have aspirations to join an airline, our airline placement team will aim to facilitate employment for you as a Co-Pilot with one of our Airline Partners.

"To have the opportunity to have my instructor qualifications upgraded to teach multi-engine, MPL & UPART courses on first-rate training aircraft, in addition to having the option of going for airline selection was simply a no brainer. I now find myself sitting in the right-hand seat of a big jet at easyJet! I hope to remain involved with training here for years to come."
