Hello, I’ve started my Private Pilot licence training. I’ve just started, 5 sessions down(which is good going considering the poor weather for months!). I have a career already but would like to change. I am 49 years old and would like to seek out a Commercial Pilot career but for Regional airlines. I would like to complete my Private Pilot licence by June 2019 and then go to start my “Modular Ab-Initio ATPL Training” The Website advertises to train to Frozen ATPL for £55,000 from a very well known Airport). I do not mind paying this money and to complete the training over two years which I am happy to do. I do not know if this training will allow me to work for an aviation company and feel a little uncertain because of my age, I will be 52 years of age when completed. Apart from being happy and content at training in something that I love, I don’t want to spend this money if no one will hire me.
In your experience, from a 52 year old, wanting to work for regional in UK and studied the modular route, is there still an opportunity to be hired for Regional airlines?
