The advantages of training with the Wings Alliance:

Lower Cost of Flight Training

We can provide you with training routes that are dramatically lower in price than typical cadet programmes; typically, £50,000 to £65,000 as opposed to £90,000+.  You can use our budget calculator to see example training budgets; when we help you design your training plan, we will construct a detailed budget.

Quality Assurance

Wings Alliance members are all specialists in their particular area of training, and respected in the industry. We get excellent feedback from students, which includes praise for the support that we give in helping our students find jobs within the airline industry.

Employment Focus

All our programmes have the same objective; to maximise your chances of securing employment. Thousands of graduates of our member schools are flying in airlines across the world.

Flexibility and Choice

We offer you choices so you can fit your training around your needs.  We have a choice of training routes, all starting with selection and all leading to employment.  You can choose part-time, full-time, a vast array of locations; training to suit your priorities, your constraints and your needs.

We offer three high-quality courses

  • Flexible course (part or full-time)
  • Full-time packaged programme
  • A BEng Aerospace Engineering with Pilot Studies degree

Each is preceeded by selection and all lead to the same destination: your first job as a commercial pilot.

We also offer an industry leading stand-alone APS MCC course.

Flexible programme (full or part-time)

One of the great things about modular flight training is its flexibility.

Our flexible programme provides you with the ability to train part or full-time, around your other commitments and at a speed determined by you. Whatever your requirements, we can likely accommodate them and at a considerably lower price than a full-time integrated programme.

You could complete the training in as little as 12 months if you are prepared to work non-stop, or alternatively spread it over several years to fit in with other commitments.

Full-time programme

If you want a full-time all-encompassing packaged course, this might be the best choice for you.

We use Bartolini Air, a Wings Alliance member in Poland, to deliver the flight training element of this course, while the aviation theory is delivered by Bristol Groundschool in the UK.

When all the exams are complete you will do a final 3-month flying phase, where you will qualify for a Commercial Pilot’s Licence with a multi-engine Instrument rating (CPL/IR) with Bartolini. The total of your training in Poland will be approximately 16-18 months.

Degree Programme

Our newly launched B.Eng Aerospace Engineering with Pilot Studies degree programme is delivered in partnership with the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol. This programme gives you the flexibility to pursue a degree which includes a Private Pilots Licence (PPL). There is the option for students to study the Airline Transport Pilot’s Licence (ATPL) theory and practical flight training alongside their degree, enabling you to qualify as a commercial pilot whilst also obtaining a degree.

The final part of your training, whichever route you follow, will be the Wings Alliance Airline Pilot Standards MCC course.  This is one of the most important courses you’ll do in your career, bridging the gap between light training aircraft and multi-pilot airliners.  The purpose of the course is to prepare you for airline employment and type rating, and we use it as our final quality assurance step, enabling us to recommend graduates to airlines as the best prospects on the job market. We also offer it as a standalone course for anyone whos is not a Wings Alliance cadet.


This is where training with us differs significantly from a ‘standard modular route’. On a day-to-day basis, your flight training will be managed by your chosen flight schools. We receive regular reports on your progress, performance and behaviour, and we will not intervene if things are going according to plan. If you encounter any serious issues, we will support you and participate in the decision-making process.

We will contact you on a regular basis to ensure all is going well and your training is going as planned. You are also free to phone or email us about any questions you may have.
