L3 Airline Academy is committed to bringing talent to the flight deck and enabling people to pursue their airline pilot career aspirations.
We appreciate that raising the required funds for airline pilot training can be a hurdle. With this in mind we have developed funding solutions with simple instalment schedules that will help you to achieve your desired career progression through the training route that suits you best.
The total funding required for the Integrated ATPL route is £96,800 and comprises two elements; the Training Security Bond required to secure your Training Sponsorship and the Foundation Fee, which covers the early phase of flight training.
When budgeting for your training, please consider the following additional costs:
Take a look at your existing banking provider or other local banks and building societies for products that might be available to you. You could also speak to an Independant Financial Advisor who may be able to point you in the right direction.
Airline Placement Limited (APL), a wholly owned subsidiary company of L3 CTS will provide a training sponsorship for the basic and intermediate phases (excluding the initial foundation element of the basic phase).
Training Sponsorship represents a significant investment and to mitigate the risk to APL (the sponsor), you will be required to deposit a Training Security Bond of £69,000, which will be held by APL.
We provide a unique opportunity for your Training Security Bond to be repaid to you over a period of 7 to 9 years once fully employed by an Airline Partner.
Please note: This is not payment for training.
L3 CTS Performance Protection provides you with peace of mind throughout training - it's our commitment to you that by passing our selection process, we believe you've got the right stuff to make it as a commercial pilot, and we'll go the extra mile to get you there.
Performance Protection includes – and covers the cost of:
