Step 3 – Consider Your Funding

Pilot training is a large investment which requires a lot of thought and preparation.

We are not able to offer any pilot training financial advice however, we would suggest that potential candidates speak with their families and a variety of banks, lenders and independent financial advisers who will be best placed to discuss the finance and funding solutions available for pilot training.

Ensure you have the means of funding your pilot training prior to applying.
