A confusing myth about aviation is that the best pilot needs four solid years of a college degree at an aviation university to get a job with major airlines. This perpetuated myth is neither right nor practical. It is important to remember that a four-year degree at a school of aviation (such as Michigan University's or Liberty University) is only helpful when pursuing a different course in conjunction with the pilot course. You will, however, be wasting time and money getting an aviation degree when you are sure of your pursuit of a CPL, ATPL or other pilot licenses.
A bachelor of science in aviation administration might be great if ou want to work as an aircraft dispatcher in air traffic control, or if you want to work in aviation maintenance technology as maintenance managers. Aviation maintenance technicians and aviation safety professionals do not get to acquire advanced flight skills in the cockpit. If you just want to fly for Delta Air Lines or another major airline, you are better off forgoeing the aviation degree from an aviation university and joining a 14-month ATPL program where you are on an accelerated career path.
This is particularly true for those who only want to be private pilots in pursuit of a private pilots license rather than a career program. Such a flight program can be easily done at a county airport where one can receive flight instruction.
If there is a specific major airline you want to work for, you might find that an flight program such as United's Aviate program might be something you might want to look into. However, such airline partnerships could lock you into a major airline and limit your future possibilities verus a traditional ground school and flight instruction program. And given the current state of the major airlines tying yourself to United via their Aviate program might not be the best way to learn to fly.
There is a distinction between sitting in class on a university campus and sitting in a flight school exclusively set up to train students in a career pilot program. We do not state this to get you into our school, but have concrete evidence of the benefits of choosing FlyBy Academy over the standard four-year flight university. You can be employed by a major airline as a career plot in as little as 14 months choosing flight instruction in our acclerated career ATPL integrated program. We also offer advanced flight training to become airline instructors are part of our cadet program. Some students, particularly in the EU, might find financing available to fund their career program at our school of aviation.
Five benefits of choosing our flight academy
Pilot focused flight training
The aviation academy has a heavy bias towards training pilots to get an ATP certification as its singular focus. It is the right choice for one who wants to focus on getting into their piloting career as quickly as possible. The pilot training course is applicable for anyone who knows that they want to be a pilot and do not want to waste time and resources studying other subjects. To the extent you are interested in other things, you can always devote time to those pursuits in your spare time which is not easier than ever given the prevalence of information on the internet.
We have a direct focus to train students in professional piloting. You can head out the tarmac within months and begin flying on our aircraft. Unlike the university, our pilot school has an intense pilot schooling program that equips you with the necessary skills fast to qualify to be a career plot in the aviation industry. Future students
Transparent schedule and fees
A degree will cost much more to obtain than attending flight school. You will pay less in the long run when you take less time to get the same level of education as a university graduate – Our aviation academy classes take as little as fourteen months to complete. The best part about joining our school is that we do not have hidden fees for the following services:
• Shuttle service
• Reading materials like manuals, tests, and computers
Online application for the course
We have an easy online application for only €1,000. You will get an immediate online assessment after making the payment. The application fee is via Paypal or standard international wire transfer. You will be required to take an online test and assessment as part of your enrollment process. If you are accepted to one of our pilot training programs, the initial enrollment fee is payable via wire transfer and there will be ongoing monthly payments through your studies on our campus. You can request more info if you have any question about our admissions process or where you might find financing available.
We have six packages of A-F with options including or lacking prices for meals, accommodation, or shuttle services. There are no hidden fees.
The EASA ATPL pilot license is primary goal when you join our aviation school. We know how to meet the requirements of this important certification. One must complete 14 months of training and show readiness to the examiner of flight tests that will demonstrate your proficiency in an airplane.
The PPL is the most straightforward license to acquire, with the least number of flight hours, written and oral exams. While you may not have earning rights, you can comfortably fly for pleasure or business with confidence for the highest level of training. Most importantly, you have the option to pursue an integrated ATPL as a beginning pilot. Students with a PPL can enter FlyBy with a slightly shorter path to completion of their studies depending on the number of flight hours they have already logged. However, if you are just getting started in your flight career, we recommend you immediately enroll in an ATPL program if your ultimate goal is to be a commercial airline pilot.
Avoid the Pitfalls of Modular Pilot Instruction
Many students like the idea of entering into a modular training regimen, learning over time in manageable chunks. You might get an instrument rating or multiengine ratings separate from other pilot certifications like your private pilots license. While many find this convenient, it could take many years and more aggregate cash paid to flight schools to acheive your dream of becoming an airline pilot. Modular programs can have overlap between modules, causing you to waste money and time. It also extends the time before you can start earning that lucrative paycheck with a major airline.
An integrated program that is designed to get you to your goal as quickly as possible with everything laid out in a coordinated and synchronized manner. Everything from your multiengine ratings to your instrument rating and commercial pilot license will be combined into one career pilot program. This is particularly true if you attend an academy like ours with an aggressive flight schedule.
Frequent Flying in Our EASA ATPL Integrated Pilot Training Allows for as Little as 14 Months to a License
One of the challenges that most students face when attending a flight school is that they have trouble accumulating the flying hours they need to get their commercial certification. Whether it be bad hours, poor scheduling, or a relaxed pace, the inability to accomplish domestic flight practice can extend your training out significantly. This costs you more money in school fees as well as lost time earning money with a major airliner.
At FlyBy we have a very aggressive domestic flight schedule. We have plenty of certified flight instructors on hand to make sure that your training flight sessions will start on time. We also have the maitenance managers and aviation maintenance technology to make sure the planes are serviced for maximum flight hours while maintainting aviation safety. We start students as early as possible in the cockpit, establish an aggressive schedule in the sunny weather of northern Spain and managable air traffic for a training flight so that students get plenty of practice and accumulate logged flight hours as quickly as possible. Thus, it is possible to achieve your ATPL license in as little as 14 months.
