My name is
I’m 22 years old and completed the integrated flight training course in Atlantic Flight Training
Academy in May 2018.
had a keen interest in aviation but when I finished school I pursued an
accounting degree. I could never get the idea of becoming a pilot out of my
head so I decided to go for it. I thought choosing a flight school was going to
be a very difficult decision but once I visited AFTA and met Captain Mark Casey
and his team of highly trained professionals I knew this was the place for me.
AFTA’s motto is ‘Training ordinary people to become extraordinary pilots’ and
that’s exactly what this flight school does. What you see is what you get. I was
told by the team that the integrated programme was extremely intense, which is
100% true. AFTA was completely honest with me from day one. As a student pilot
you have to be very dedicated and work really hard, but it is so worthwhile!
AFTA because of its modern, well maintained fleet, the chance to train at Cork
International airport (lots of commercial traffic and sometimes tough weather
conditions), it’s highly trained instructors and job prospects for students,
just to name a few.
honestly say that choosing to become a pilot and attend AFTA was the best
decision I have ever made. I cannot express my gratitude enough to every person
in the team at AFTA. There is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t be where I am
today without them. If you are contemplating on becoming a pilot, you will have
difficult days during training, there is no doubt about that, but the team in
AFTA will give you every resource possible to help you succeed. I was extremely
well prepared for my PPL, CPL and MEIR skills tests as a result of the high
standard of instruction in AFTA. I had limited flight training experience
before starting the integrated course, but they help you in every way possible,
from initial training all the way to your MCC course.
completed the integrated course the after service I received was excellent. I
did lots of interview and sim prep here. The school went out of its way to
ensure I was well prepared for my airline assessment. I think this is a major
asset to AFTA students.
completed a Ryanair assessment just over a month from finishing my training. I
am trilled to say, with the support of Mark Casey and his fantastic team that I
am about to embark on a career with Ryanair, my first choice of airline and
goal from the beginning of training.
without any hesitation recommend AFTA to anyone deciding on aviation as a their
Mark Casey and all the team at Atlantic Flight Training Academy for making my
dream come true
