    THEY BECAME AIRLINE PILOTS WITH ASTONFLY

    Since its creation, Astonfly has trained more than 1,500 airline pilots, currently working for more than 50 airlines around the world.

    DID YOU KNOW?

    The salary of an airline pilot varies widely, from €36 to €200,000 gross per year, depending on the airline, the type of aircraft operated, the position held (co-pilot or captain), seniority and flight experience.

    If you want to become an airline pilot, you can take the Integrated ATP course (Multi Airlines or Ryanair Future Flyer Academy), which enables you to become an airline pilot thanks to 2 years of intensive, full-time training.

    The Ryanair Future Flyer Academy program is more expensive, as it offers students a conditional promise of employment signed with Ryanair before the start of their training, and the company manages and supervises the student for the duration of their training.

    To help you finance your professional project, Astonfly has a partnership with BNP PARIBAS. You benefit from a preferential rate of just 1.99% to finance the cost of your training, with repayment over 9 years that can be deferred for up to 36 months.

    In the event of failure or withdrawal during the theoretical course, Astonfly will reimburse you in full for the sums already paid for your training. In the event of failure or withdrawal during the practical course, Astonfly will reimburse you for any flight hours not yet used, without penalty.

    To enroll in an Astonfly ATP airline pilot course, you need at least a high school diploma and a satisfactory level of understanding and expression of the English language.

    Commercial pilot training typically lasts between 18 and 24 months.

    To enrol in the Astonfly Multi Airlines course, you must be at least 17 years old when the course starts.

    Astonfly has a fleet of 3 types of aircraft: single-engine Cessna 172S G1000, multi-engine DA42 G1000 and Mudry Cap 10 aerobatic aircraft. The school also has FNPT II-certified flight simulators at Toussus le Noble and Boeing 737 MAX FTD Level 2 simulators in Dublin (Ireland) and Berlin (Germany).

    It is essential for student pilots to have a good level of English, both to be able to follow the theoretical and practical courses, which are given in English, and for radio transmissions, which are mainly in English.
