Depends whether you want to be an RAF Pilot, or a commercial Pilot.

For the Air Force, you should aim to do well at your GCSEs, then go on to 6th Form. Apply for 6th Form Sponsorship, go to Officer & Aircrew selection at Cranwell, and if you're lucky, they might sponsor you to go to uni!

For Commercial Pilot, you either (a) need £40,000 to pay for the training, or you (b) need to be one of the lucky 2 or 3 a year who get sponsored by Airlines (* I'd stick with (a)!! )

The lucky ones? Have you seen the type rating schemes some airlines are offerring? Hardly lucky to be sponsored now; you end up oweing them a ridiculous amount and they can bin you as soon as you start earning in order to take in another inexperienced recruit; get them to pay for the majority of training; then bin them etc etc...
