Red face ATPL Training

Hello comunity,

First of all greetings and thanking you for this forum, its very helpful and contains a lot of info..

I'm writing to introduce myself and make one question:

I'm going crazy i want to be a pilot but i can't find the way, its cost a lots of money and i can't handle the cost of the courses, i have history trying to make anything in the aviation, like 5 years now trying and trying... i'm from venezuela and started the course there of PPL, i made a lot of things, talking about medical issues, I had to get an operation for nasal septal deviation in order to get my medical certificate, after that i tried to fly and i didn't get any hours because the plane was in A check, as the ppl know in latin america the things don't work without money and the plane was in the workshop about 2 years, resuming i started with the university, but to be honest, i can't study if always i have planes in my head, i quit yes. When the plane was ready, i was out of money, that the prices had raisen and i quit and started working there to move to UK, i moved out, i'm living now in london and i'm looking for some academys and some scholarships to make the course, i find the CTC wings but i don't know how its work about the partnerships with the airlines, i tried to write to them but i can't use the enquiries in the page.

If you have any coments about that, how its work please let me know or should i quit and try to do another thing...

PD: i'm 22 Years old, have EU passport

Thanks for your time reading a little of my history in trying to be a pilot jeje.

Kind Regards.

Well basically like you said it all takes money. A lot of it. Best idea is to go to these training schools on their open days and ask your questions directly to them.

They will be able to advise you on how to go about the money situation. Most of the schools also have a partnership with a bank that can offer loans for our type of training. But that isn't always the best option.

I know of someone who working and saved up and started training at the age of 30.

Your more than likely to find their open days on their website or by giving them a call.
Oxford Aviation is another well know school in the UK.

In regards to sponsorships.... Not many airlines are doing them at the moment. Go to the airline websites and they will say under their requirement page if they do or not.

Of course once you have done the training you have to join the job market. Most of the high end well known school have airlines come to them asking for pilots. And the school will let the students know one way or another how to apply for that.

The schools will also try to help as much as possible as well in trying to find a job.

Hope this has been of some help to you.
