Course Yankee Starts Groundschool!

Here’s course Yankee, our most recent intake of residential ground school students who have started their journey of becoming commercial airline pilots. There are some new and returning faces, Chris only recently completed his PPL with us and has jumped into the classroom with no delay.

They have already experienced their first week of the ATPL ground school and are hard at work for Phase One. Our instructors will take them through 650 hours of teaching whilst making good use of our E-Learning resource, Padpilot, to get the best out of our students.

The next 6 months won’t be easy but with the guidance of our instructors along with hard work and determination, they will come out of it ready for their next step in becoming commercial pilots.

Alex Passes CPL First Time!

And that’s another first-time pass!

Alexander flew from our Bournemouth Base with a CAA examiner who tested him on his ability to navigate, handling of the aircraft, as well as putting Alex to the test by simulating emergencies.

Alex has trained with our CFI, BLD08, who brought him up to speed for his skills test. Through BLD08’s mentoring, Alex flew our PA28 Arrow, Hotel Juliet, safely and skilfully throughout all phases of the flight and clearly left an impression on the examiner.

Alex, who already holds an MEP, will now head into the FNPTII with BLD08 to start training for the Instrument Rating.

Congratulations Alex and keep working hard!

Quentin Passes CPL First Time!

Congratulations to Quentin from all of us at BCFT!

Quentin joined us at the end of April and trained with our instructor BLD10. He flew to an excellent standard throughout his 25 hour CPL and was quickly put forward for his CPL skills test.

Quentin took off with EXM58 on a planned route to the village of Street, in the county of somerset before being asked to do a diversion. Having successfully completed the divert, he then proceeded onwards to Exeter where he completed a series of circuits. Finally, Quentin was then tested on his general handling skills and basic instrument flying before flying back to Bournemouth where he received the fantastic news of having passed his CPL first time!

Quentin will now proceed onto the MEP next week to continue the rest of his training, after a weekend of celebration.

Congratulations and best of luck in the rest of your training!

100% Pass Rate!

A huge congratulations to our ATPL students, who today, have received the news that they have ALL passed their exams this week.

The ATPL exams are not a walk in the park and so we are very proud to hear that every single one of our residential students sitting exams this week, all passed. This achievement is a reflection of how hard they have worked in the past 2 months.

For some individuals, it is the end of ground school having completed the 14 theoretical exams. As for the other students, they now have a weekend outside of the books to unwind themselves, ready for the next phase of exams on Monday. They will be rejoining the classroom with our new intake of ground school students, ready to take on the next set of exams.

Congratulations and keep working hard!
