AFTA and MTU Global Business and Pilot Studies Webinar

Munster Technological University (MTU) and the Atlantic Flight Training Academy (AFTA) have developed a new and exciting programme providing prospective pilots with the ability to complete flight training together with an honours degree. Find out more at their Webinar on Tuesday 11th May at 7pm. A link to register for the webinar is available here.

For prospective pilots, the ability to complete flight training together with an honours degree provides the student with a unique opportunity to take a blended approach to becoming a professional pilot.

The benefit of being able to experience life on campus enables students to develop social and interpersonal skills, being ready to seek employment in the aviation industry within just three years of starting at MTU. The final year of the programme affords students the opportunity to complete their third level studies whilst working as a pilot through the delivery of exclusively online lectures tailored for actively working aviation professionals. Full details about the course can be found here.
