Fastrack – Modular Commercial Pilot Training

Our US Partnership provides our students with the exciting prospect of completing phase 1 with Wings Airline Academy in Florida (USA), returning to our UK based ATO in Gloucester to complete phase 2.

Our modular program allows you to structure your training based on your availability and preferences. The two-phase course covers various modules that prepare you for a successful career as a commercial pilot. With our proven track record, many of our Fastrack graduates go on to fly for leading airlines such as BA, Ryan Air and Easy Jet as well as gaining employment on many private jet operators.

Like our regular Fastrack Pilot Training, your training is split into two phases. The core difference is that we’re working with Wings Airline Academy in Florida to give you the chance to do phase 1 of your training (including the longer hour building module) in the clear skies of Florida which will greatly accelerate your progress through the course.

Phase 1 of your training will focus on:


  • Theoretical Knowledge Instruction.

  • FAA PPL Written Exam

  • FAA Part 141 Approved Private Pilot’s License Course including night privileges

  • FAA PPL Practical Test (Check ride)

  • EASA PPL Flight Test

  • FAA IR Theoretical Knowledge Instruction 

  • FAA Part 141 Approved Instrument Rating Course 

  • FAA IR Written Exam 

  • FAA IR Practical Test (Check ride) 

  • PIC Time Building

Once you’ve completed phase 1 you’ll come back to the UK to complete phase two fo your training which will focus on your examinations and conversions. 

Phase 2

  • MEP 

  • FAA to UK/EASA MEIR Conversion

Why Fastrack - Modular vs Integrated Flight Training

Most flight training courses that allow you to become a Commercial Pilot are very costly, and take a lot of time to complete. These Integrated training courses are built around making your training your life and you will be expected to pay for everything at once.

We don’t believe that is the best way to train people to become commercial pilots. Which is why we created Fastrack as a modular pilot training course that’s significantly more accessible for the average person. With this idea at the heart of how we structure our courses, we’ve ensured that Fastrack is:

1) Uses a structured payment plan.

With Fastrack, you’ll pay for the modules in a structured payment plan. This means you know exactly what to budget for and means you do not need to pay for the entire course upfront like other providers.

2) Allows the training to be completed in minimum time.

Sacrificing your life to live out your dream to become a commercial pilot is not how things should be. With our modular Fastrack USA course, training like this is a thing of the past as you’ll be able to complete your training in as quickly as 17 months meaning as little time out of your life as possible.

3)  Have an obvious path to take you from flight enthusiast to fully qualified commercially licenced pilot.

We understand that every aspiring commercial pilot has unique career goals, whether that be private jets, turbo-props or airliners and unique training requirements. That's why our modular program covers a wide range of courses, which can be tailored to suit your individual needs.

Our course is divided into groups of modules based on common themes, allowing you to focus your attention on the areas that are most relevant to your current career aspirations. This approach enables you to optimize your training time and energy by prioritizing the modules that matter most to you at any given point.

With Fastrack, you have the flexibility to organize your training in a way that suits your career goals and personal circumstances, making your journey to becoming a fully qualified commercial pilot efficient and effective.
