The British Airways Future Flyer Programme is a self-funded programme. It is open year-round to applicants who would like to express interest in the programme. This programme is the steppingstone to becoming a pilot with one of the world’s most renowned airlines. British Airways offer a fully integrated ATPL course for applicants with no flying experience and MPL route for those who may already have a private pilot’s licence. 

The application involves initial screening which progresses to aptitude tests to determine whether you are a suitable candidate or not. British Airways are looking for motivated and hardworking individuals over the age of 17. They offer vast career progression with a desirable fleet of aircraft throughout Europe and further afield. Depending on experience it can take up to 18 months to complete the course with a further 3 months allocated to type rating training on the airbus A320 series aircraft.
