These programmes are designed to meet the requirements for a Flight Crew position with a European Airline. Upon graduation, you will be qualified with at least an EASA CPL with ATPL theory and additional qualifications both FAA & EASA, depending on which course you choose. Our Guaranteed Programme provide pure EASA qualfications and you will graduate with a EASA CPL and IR with ATPL theory (This is what other schools mistakenly call a Frozen ATPL – in reality there is no licence called a Frozen ATPL) and MCC.
The 3 options below indicate exactly which licences and ratings you will obtain and confirms the cost and the number of hours flown for each.
Our EASA Fast Track Programme is highly recommended and is by far EFT’s most popular programme. It reduces your overall costs and we do not underestimate how important this is for many. It also gives greater flexibility during training, reduces the time taken to get qualified, and ultimately gives you a more broad experience which ultimately makes you a better more rounded pilot.
Prices are based on staying in our accommodation for the course duration.
Our start dates are as follows :
Please bear in mind the courses tend to fill around 4 months in advance – so plan ahead!
In order to become an airline pilot, you must obtain the highest level of aircraft pilot certification: an Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL). It includes ATPL theory (14 EASA subjects), a Commercial Pilot’s Licence and Instrument Rating (CPL/IR) and a Multi-Crew Cooperation Course (MCC).
This licence allows you to work as a First Officer with an airline once you have completed a specific aircraft type training course, and in time become a captain.
In order to obtain the ATPL, you can follow either the integrated or modular training route.

Flight Training Center
We offer ALL ratings and certificates in an accelerated format to individuals who require proficiency in their training but have a limited time frame to complete the training due to other commitments.
Our approved Part 141 Career Pilot Program develops the student pilot from zero experience through to 250hrs and commercial pilot status. This is a structured syllabus that encompasses a classroom learning type experience along with flight and ground schooling. Applicants are enrolled into the program and graduate much like at college or university. All of the training undertaken is documented in the students training record and issued to the student upon graduation.
There are many differences between AFT Center and its competitors. If your rating is time critical, and you feel you cannot put aside the time to come to us. Providing you have your own aircraft, we will travel to you. You can train in you own aircraft at your airport of choice.
Our most popular cross-country course allows you to fly across the nation whilst receiving your flight instruction at the same time. Many aspects of the Instrument rating and the Commercial Pilot ratings can be completed on a long cross-country. This saves you time and money.
We Guarantee the course for you.
We are so confident in our ability to accurately assess your training needs. As a domestic student under part 61, if you do not pass your course, we pay for your additional training ourselves. All you have to pay for is your aircraft time and examiner fees. Also, any weather related delays would not be charged to you. AFTC will continue the training to make up for those days.
We create safe pilots and proficient aviators. We guarantee you will become a safe and proficient IFR Pilot, capable to navigate the IFR System in actual conditions. We will expose you to actual IMC where available so that you can safely enjoy real weather.
Many of our clients return for additional training. Over 50% of our business is through repeat and referrals. This is a testimony to the quality and care we put into our training at AFTC. In 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011and 2012 over 95% of our clients rated AFTC’s training as “Superior” to any other flight-training provider. This is why we have obtained FAA accreditation.
Each training package is individually designed for you the student. We understand that every pilot is unique and requires a program that is a perfect fit to their current ability and schedule. We will determine your individual needs in our initial consultation and do everything possible to meet and exceed your needs and expectations.

PHASE I: GROUND SCHOOL
The first four months of training are dedicated to studying aviation theory and gaining a solid comprehension of both maths and physics. This phase is delivered by our experienced ground school instructors in fully air-conditioned, modern classrooms.
Ground school subjects include:
General technical training
Aircraft-specific technical training
Sound knowledge of maths and physics, particularly the following subjects, will help you master your ground school:
Ratios and proportion
Properties of a circle
Equations of motion
Equation of continuity
Sound challenging? It certainly is, however it is the material you will need to know throughout your aviation career.
Our instructors will prepare you for the mandatory examinations. The exams will be taken according to the schedule and spread out over the whole course of your training program.
PHASE II: FLIGHT TRAINING
This is what you really come to flight school for. You’ll take off with our experienced flight instructors in our new trainer aircraft. And when you land after your first solo flight, it’s a rush you’ll never forget.
Flight training is divided into various lesson elements, and you will fly approximately 200 hours
