Do you recommend any courses preferably UK based, but don't mind where, that are extremely good for beginners?
What you are looking for is called a "cadet scheme" or sponsorship. Although such programs are unheard of with the major American carriers, airlines outside the USA commonly have them as flight training abroad is so expensive, therefore their pool of pilot applicants is much smaller.
In the past few years many carriers in Europe that used to wholly sponsor their pilot candidates have changed to "self-sponsored" pilots. This mean they pay their way through flight school and with the very low time of a few hundred hours, take the Airline Transport Pilot written exams (giving them what is called a "frozen ATPL" until they gain the flight time) and get a type rating like the Airbus A320. They are then hired by airlines like Ryanair or GB Airways who are affiliated with such schemes. Other schemes require that the pilot pay back the airline for training via payroll deduction over the course of their employment.
If this is the sort of thing you are interested in, try Oxford Aviation Training. Click this link for more info on self sponsored pilot training- http://www.oxfordaviation.net/airline_schemes.htm
Oxford also has message forums for questions that may help you find a scheme. http://www.oxfordaviation.net/Forum/default.asp
You can also find out about pilot cadet schemes at this predominantly European pilot message board- http://www.pprune.org
They have a section for wannabe pilots where such schemes are addressed. Between Oxford and PPRUNE, you should find all you need to know about them.
you cant really. us airlines are really well i cant say poor but are on the edge. a lot not all and they can afford to pay for every ones training.
No possible sir. We get well enough pilots that are already trained then why would that pay for your training. Are you Prince Charles or something. V
Come out of the military with at least 1,500 hours in multi-engine jet aircraft. Without a centerline restriction is a help. Flight instructor time is a help.
In the states,, forget it. if YOU want the job that bad, YOU pay for the traiing.
Never heard of it in the US, airlines cant afford to pay for a pilots training, thats why you need the hours and ratings BEFORE you apply... good luck but I cant immagine that ever happening... if it does happen then I missed out big time...
dont think airlines sponsor, but if you want, the military will train you for free. work a few years in military transport or something then you'll have the hours to become an airline pilot.
