ATPL exams distance learning

Id recommend BGS, honest, high standard and a great foundation to jump through the atpl exam hoop section of the course. The instructors were very thorough with good amounts of humour thrown in when the mood needed lightening a tad.

Bristol makes a difficult part of the ATPL easy and enjoyable. The quality of the instructors and the material is fantastic and the brush up course really gets you prepared for your exams. Very, very good.

ATPL Theory

10/14 exams complete, 95% average first time passes (so far), last four next month, very happy, learning materials very thorough & easy to understand. Online webinars excellent, approachable & enthusiastic instructors. Lots of help also on social media with licensing issues, SOLI transfers & the ever changing headache caused by the dual problems of COVID & BREXIT. My only regret is due to covid the revision weeks were held online (not BGS fault), so never got to actually meet the instructors in person, which is a shame, though credit to the school for functioning during very difficult times. Overall can certainly recommend.
