Leading Edge Aviation announces the selection of six successful candidates for Fully Funded LEAP integrated ATPL training and Flight Instructor course

Leading Edge Aviation are thrilled to announce that the six successful candidates have been offered the opportunity of a Fully Funded LEAP integrated ATPL and Flight Instructor course followed by guaranteed employment with Leading Edge Aviation as a Flight Instructor. This opportunity is a significant milestone in their aviation careers, and we are proud to support their dreams.

“We would like to thank everyone who participated in the application and selection process. We received an overwhelming response, and it was a tough decision to select the six successful candidates” said Andy McFarlane CEO.  “We were impressed with the passion, dedication, and talent demonstrated by all the applicants and we hope that for those who were not successful, this has been a positive learning experience which will help them to continue towards their ambition to become a pilot.”  

The successful candidates will begin their training worth in excess of £115,000 in April and July across Leading Edge’s Oxford and Alhama campuses. After completing pilot training and gaining their Commercial Pilot Licence, the graduates will undertake Flight Instructor training and take up a salaried post within the Leading Edge Aviation Flight Instructor team for a minimum of two years.

This programme is a significant investment by Leading Edge Aviation and demonstrates its commitment to the aviation industry’s future by providing opportunities for aspiring pilots and instructors. We believe that supporting the next generation of aviation professionals is essential to the industry’s need for more pilots to support growth and development.

“We can’t wait to welcome our new starters to the team” added McFarlane. “We are confident that they will thrive in our ‘Whole Pilot’ training program and make a significant contribution to the aviation industry.”
