Global pilot training academy Airways Aviation is now offering a funding scheme for people wishing to train as a pilot in the UK and Spain, through an arrangement with BBVA.

BBVA's flight training loan scheme is a secured funding option and offers those interested in an aviation career a bespoke solution to finance pilot training.

Ian Cooper, Airways Aviation, CEO, said: "The cost of pilot training is often a barrier that stops many people from pursuing their dream career and we are proud to offer alternative finance options for our students embarking on their pilot training with Airways Aviation. Our arragement with BBVA opens up the world of aviation to a greater number of students, allowing them to take control of their flight training pathway and allows us to remove one of the obstacles on the route to becoming a professional pilot."

BBVA funding is open to eligible students who qualify for admission into the Airways Aviation Elite Pathways Programme (EPP) and who satisfy BBVA's lending criteria and affordability assessment.
