Can you become a Pilot with BTEC qualifications?Watch
What BTEC qualifications are you studying? If you are interested in the Engineering and Technological side of Aerospace then we offer Aerospace Technologies with Pilot Studies as a degree which includes pilot training. I know of several fellow students who entered this course with BTEC Diplomas, as opposed to A Levels.
They're not, but the hardest part about pilot training is probably just having the money to pay for it.
I was an Air cadet and they were nice to allow me to fly and maybe some airplane simulators to get an idea how planes fly. Again, loads of money, time and effort. Depends on what you want to use your pilot skills for, commercial, military?
The education helps because there's pilots who get carried away with flying and the companies who own the planes have problems with that because the job may be boring for them, so yeah, get the education.
Hello! You do not in fact, need any A Levels. Let alone GCSE! There is no requirement from the CAA about education, but all airlines require 5 GCSE. I work for Jet2 as a first officer (on command course) and I have 5 passes and one B in RE but no A Levels. I studied with Aeros Flight academy. They allow for modular, instalment based training which is very affordable. You need to find a flight school for you, and then require about what they want from you before you start. The only flight school I have found which require A levels is Emirates. Hope this helps.
