Discover what makes FTEJerez a flight trainer like no other…
I quite simply fell in love with flying after having a few trial lessons during the summer of 2015, after my Dad suggested giving it a go. My first solo was the happiest moment of my life and that is when I decided to swap my skis a pilot uniform! (note – Rachelle was an athlete on U18, U21 & Europa Cup Squads, British Ski & Snowboard)
After talking to FTE’s staff and graduates at Pilot Careers Live in Heathrow, I liked what the training package had to offer: all-inclusive price, one campus, small course sizes and a friendly atmosphere.
The support was excellent and the standard of instruction high. FTEJerez and their instructors really care about the progress of each individual and want to see them succeed. My main challenge was ground school as I come from a non-technical background, however, through hard work and good instruction, I passed all my exams first time.
I hope to go into training as I would love to teach others. I would also like to make a difference in some way and help people using my past and present careers.
Be open minded, research all the options available and visit the different training providers. Then, go for the option which feels right for you.
