Professional Pilot Training (includes ground studies)A forum for those on the steep path to that coveted professional licence. Whether studying for the written exams, training for the flight tests or building experience here's where you can hang out.
Aye, not too many people will dissagree with that, Bristol are excellent.
You do get cheaper courses elsewhere and the brush up course of 2 weeks each module + the 1 week for exams doesnt quite suit everyone, (work commitments and the like), but if you can get the 3 weeks off then bristols by far the best way to go.
shop around though, theres a few schools (oxford, cabair,cranfield, bournmouth etc...) and you might find that the price and the course structure suits you better.
The training material with Bristol is top class and the online material is excellent. If your stuck on any concepts theres animations that help you understand.
Ive heard very good things about all the schools though, just pick what suits you mate!
Amcapt, I should have been a bit more clear about my status..
I completed the course in Turkey in 2001. I just don't have the time and resources to sit through a course, so the need for the online version. I want to study at my own pace.
I live in US and have to take the exams in Turkey. I don't need the signature , approval or whatever you want to call it from the Bristol guys.. I just hate the way the Turkish people take these exams : they memorize them.. I want to study..
If the price matter then consider the possibilities of Oxford Aviation Academy. It is very good brand, provide high level of education and not expensive! - 1200GBP, OAA distant training course + two brush-ups by 950GBP each.
And contact me, if you need ATPL flight training - time building/IFR/MEP/NVFR/CPL, etc for ATPL for 17.000Eur
