First off, I know this probably belongs in Real World Aviation but I’m not at the right trust level yet, but feel free to move it there if you can.
Secondly, how on earth do people afford to undertake their commercial pilot training? With an MPL costing around £95,000, and an intergrated ATPL costing around £110,000 (give or take a few thousand), it’s a wonder anyone is a pilot.
I know easyJet and British Airwaya will act as guarantors to secure any loan you get, allowing you to perhaps get a much greater laon than perhaps you may otherwise be able to, but this still depends on you actually getting on their course.
I know doing it modular is one way to keep the cost managable whilst you study, but say you wanted to do it full-time? And even if you did get a loan, surely repayments would be insane on a loan of such a size?
If anyone has any experiences or knowledge about this, please feel free to mention it - would be very gratefully recieved! I’m a law student who’s slowly coming to the realisation that an office job isn’t for him…
