BSc (Hons) Air Transport with Commercial Pilot Training

Course Overview

If you want to qualify as a commercial pilot, this dynamic course covers the many areas of air transport management and prepares you for a successful career as a commercial pilot. It is one of only a few UK universities to have an FNPT II Flight Simulator, which you will use during the final year of your studies, helping you to prepare for the final phase of your flight training.

Unique to the UK Higher Education sector, Bucks New University’s programme will allow you to obtain a university degree and a frozen ATPL in just three years of full-time study – at a lower cost than doing them separately.

We are looking for applicants who can demonstrate an enthusiasm for flying and a strong interest in the aviation industry.

If you are successfully admitted on to this course you will be expected to find the additional fees for training to complete your Frozen ATPL with one of our accredited pilot training providers. This can cost up to £80,000 spread over the three years of this Degree.

The additional training costs of the programme are not covered by your loan from Student Finance England. For a breakdown of these costs please contact advice@bucks.ac.uK

What will this course cover?

Throughout this programme you’ll study key modules in air law, meteorology and instruments alongside broader subjects such as global aviation and airport operations. You’ll take basic theoretical pilot training, while a range of practical and advanced theoretical training modules will be available through our approved provider.

As well as commercial pilot training, this course is structured to equip you with a range of skills for progression into airline management roles. You’ll examine strategic and sustainability management, as well as the structure and development of the industry.

By the time you finish this course you’ll have demonstrated self-reliance and adaptability as well as qualities in leadership and communication. You’ll become a professional, well-trained pilot, ready to tackle the challenges that face the profession today.

More placements, more choices

Bucks is a Placement Plus university. So, whatever degree you do, you can be sure there’ll be plenty of industry-relevant opportunities on offer, to help you get into your chosen field.

We’ll also prepare you for work beforehand, with special Skills for Work training, further boosting your CV, and building skills employers will value. In recognition of the value we place on these skills we have incorporated this experience into your study time.

Placements Plus is all about helping you get some valuable experience under your belt while you’re a student. To increase your choices later, and help you get the graduate-level job you want.

Course Details

Unique to the UK Higher Education sector, completing this Bucks New University programme will allow you to obtain a recognised UK Honours degree and a frozen Air Transport Pilot Licence in just three years of full-time study – at a lower cost than doing them separately. This is the highest commercial pilot category there is. Once you have met the required number of professional experiences, the frozen prefix will be dropped.

You’ll benefit from the experience of our specialist staff and balance academic study with professional qualifications. You’ll become a member of the Royal Aeronautical Society and obtain your Commercial Pilot’s Licence with Instrumental Rating and ultimately your Multi-Crew Co-operation Certificate, known as Frozen ATPL.

People 1st Gold Award In Aviation

We were the only Higher Education institution to have been awarded the People 1st Gold accreditation for our aviation degrees (2015 – 2017). Being so close to Heathrow, the course attracts a variety of guest lecturers. Our links with the airport also provide great opportunity for seasonal employment and work placements.

Course flexibility

If you are unable to complete any of the commercial pilot training modules, you’ll have the opportunity to transfer onto either the Air Transport with Private Pilot Training or Airline and Airport Management degrees.

Employability

What are my career prospects

Boeing forecasts that between 2016 and 2035, Europe’s commercial aviation industry will require approximately 104,000 new commercial airline pilots*, so your skills will be in demand.

This will enable you to apply for First Officer positions with airlines. Our graduates have gone on to become First Officers with a range of airlines including British Airways, Ryanair, easyJet, Cathay Pacific and Jet 2.
