LEA Fully Sponsored Flight Training

LEA’s Fully Sponsored Integrated Flight Training

Leading Edge Aviation Opens Fully Funded Integrated Flight Training

Please note: We have no affiliation with Leading Edge Aviation. We are reporting on the opening of their fully sponsored LEAP & FI Course. Details have been taken from the Leading Edge Aviation website.

Leading Edge Aviation (LEA), a leading UK based Flight Training Organisation, have opened a remarkable opportunity for 6 FULLY FUNDED full frozen ATPL and Flight Instructor courses to commence in 2023. LEA will fully find all of your integrated commercial flight training and the flight instructor rating. In return you will be bonded to the company as flight instructor for 2 years after completing your training. In total this is worth £115,000 per successful student.

We believe this is a remarkable opportunity and commend Leading Edge Aviation for providing a fully funded flight training program. This opens up flight training for people who many not otherwise have the resources to fund their training. It is extremely refreshing to see a Flight Training Organisation leading the way in rolling out such an opportunity, and we hope to see airlines follow suit.
