    Switching ATPL Full-Time Training to Bristol Ground School Distance Learning

    I've been speaking with Bristol Ground School about making the switch to them after leaving the ATPL full-time ground school.

    It's not 100% clear on the future of ATPL exams taken in the UK and I have a few questions. 

    I've shared the process and cost of changing from full-time to BGS ATPL training courses which is more expensive than you may think.

    Should I Get PPL Flying Experience Before Doing My ATPL Modular or Integrated Flying Training

    WARNING: Apologies!!!! I received a call midway through that interrupted my flow. Hopefully, everything still makes sense!

    I am often asked by people interested in becoming a pilot if I think its a good idea for them to just start a commercial pilot course before they've got a PPL or any flying experience.

    I share my views on this, the pros, cons and the pitfalls you may find with your decision on becoming a professional pilot.

    This may (or may not) be what you're expecting!
