Those who enrol upon the Integrated ATPL Airline Pilot Career Program have the opportunity to combine an industry-endorsed degree with their professional pilot training. It is also possible to integrate the degree into selected Airline programs.


All aspects of your pilot training experience as you progress through the course will count towards your degree. The program will also enable you to develop higher-level knowledge, understanding and skills as preparation for becoming a professional pilot.


This time-efficient degree eliminates the need to attend a university campus, and you'll gain two professional qualifications (license and degree) within three years.


The degree fully integrates all aspects of your pilot training to provide a program that enables you to reflect on your progress and develop personally and professionally, with support for your learning throughout from both Middlesex University and L3 CTS.


In your final year of the degree program you'll learn while you earn as a Co-Pilot with one of the Airlines we are working with. Specifically tailored to suit professional aviation industry needs, the degree modules will prepare you for responsibilities in and beyond the flight deck and could put you at the leading edge of your career trajectory into management and training management within the airline industry.
