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.

The successful candidates will begin their training worth an 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. The academy believes 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" said Andy McFarlane CEO. "We are confident that they will thrive in our ‘Whole Pilot’ training program and make a significant contribution to the aviation industry."
