L3Harris Technologies is launching two new Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) programmes for aspiring aviators training towards a UKCAA, EASA or Dual Pilot license – the Integrated ATPL and the Flying Start ATPL.  

The Integrated ATPL packages L3Harris’ Airline Academy’s commercial pilot training with accommodation throughout the U.S. flight training phase, based in Orlando, Florida, training assurance and access to its Graduate Placement Pool. Optional accommodation packages will be available for new trainees during the U.K.-based ground school and advanced training phases.

The Flying Start ATPL provides direct entry to the company’s flight training programme for those who have already completed their Theoretical Knowledge ATPL exams. It similarly packages accommodation during its U.S. flight training phase, training assurance and access to the Graduate Placement Pool.

Both programmes operate from L3Harris’ facilities in the U.K. and U.S., including its London Training Centre, U.K. centre of flight excellence at Cranfield University and the Orlando, Florida, flight academy.

 The new ATPL and Flying Start ATPL courses are now offered to all new trainees applying from Monday 7th November 2022.

“In response to cost of living increases across the globe, we have launched two ATPL programmes at price points we believe reflect the value of our training proposition,” said David Coward, Vice President and General Manager, L3Harris Airline Academy. “Our prices now include accommodation throughout the U.S.-based flight training phase, training assurance, providing peace of mind should the trainees need additional training and access to our world-renowned Graduate Placement Pool, providing graduates career services and support as they look to start their airline career. This makes our pricing clear and transparent.”

L3Harris is a Gold Sponsor of this year's European Airline Training Symposium (EATS) taking place in Berlin, Germany, from 8-9 November. Stop by booth #207 to learn more about the new ATPL programmes.
