What Students Say About FTI

FTI played a major role in my transition from the military. Many of the instructors of FTI have a military background which gives them credibility and common ground for military students to relate with. That gives them an edge in their ability to communicate properly in teaching what military pilots already have learned to what they will need to know in the airlines. FTI’s training program is on par, if not better, with any training I had in the military which is directly attributable to the professionalism of FTI’s staff. In addition to the intangibles that FTI has, their tangible asset of training in United Airlines’ simulators was an incredible training opportunity and one that helped me from day one when I started training at United. Anyone who desires to fly for United should consider FTI first when looking at any training while preparing for a major airline!

This is my second time choosing FTI for my type rating training. You guys provide outstanding and high-quality training. I had Peter and Bruce as instructors, and Eddy was our checkpilot. I want to thank them for the great training and professionalism! I will continue to recommend my colleagues to train with FTI, as I have already done many times. Once again, thank you very much! Really enjoyed training with your people!

Dear FTI Team,
I want to thank you all for your dedication and hard work assisting us during our training needs. I have found your group to be incredibly professional, capable and willing. It was not an easy task to take over our training in such short order and everyone at FTI did so with great competency. You guys are a great team of professionals and I hope we get to work together again.

FTI offers a great program that took me from the ATP-CTP all the way to my ATP rating. It’s the only program I found that can do it all at the same location minimizing traveling and other related costs. Doing the training on the airplane I will soon do my airline screening in was a huge bonus and it was very affordable. The United Airlines training center is top notch to say the least. A big thank you to the FTI team and my instructors for the great job they did. I wish you all the best. I highly recommend FTI for the training and services that they offer.

I’m not much of an online/social media reviewer, but these guys deserve every bit of it. I was looking for a reasonably priced ATP-CTP. Not only is their price highly competitive, but they also offered stand alone ATP and or type ratings in the best narrow body sims in the world (no exaggeration) for a terrific price. On top of that, I quickly discovered that their staff strives to deliver the best experience they can deliver, and was highly responsive. The instructors are among the best in the industry, being well qualified and with lifetimes of real legacy airline experience. If given the choice between FTI and place like FSI or CAE, you would not be making a mistake with FTI.

After having been out of the flight station for several years, I chose FTI as the place to further my aviation career and receive an ATP. The folks at FTI are absolutely wonderful. They are responsive, organized and experienced. The preparation provided and facilities/simulators utilized are world class. I would 100% recommend FTI for all your ATP-CTP, ATP, and type rating needs. Thank you FTI!
