FTA Global

About FTA

FTA is currently one of the only UK flight training academies to offer integrated pilot training entirely in the UK. We are based at Brighton City Airport, where we have been training pilots for 10 years.


FTA's base, Brighton City Airport is the oldest continuous licensed airport in the UK. It was first founded in 1910, and is the site of the first commercial flight in Britain. The main terminal building was built in 1936 and the structure has hardly changed.


Today, over a century later, students from across the globe come to the South Coast of England to train as commercial pilots. They learn to fly our state-of-the-art fleet of DA40 Star and DA42 Twin Star aircraft, which feature the same systems found in modern airliner flight decks, including EFIS, ADC, FADEC and GNSS instruments.
