FIXED WING – FULL TIME TRAINING

Below you will find information on the selection program as well as the training courses offered on a full time basis. FTA delivers the same high quality training to both private students and airline cadets.

1. SELECTION


FTA’s selection program is one of the most robust in industry and the selection tools used are recognised as best practice for the selection of private and airline students. Successful completion of the selection program is a mandatory pre-requisite to be accepted on a course. Selection does not only give FTA an indication of your ability to successfully complete the training program, but it is also a requirement to access a VET Student Loan (VSL).
