Hi guys! I've finally decided to start my ATPL training :)
Actually, it is the second time I've decided it but I couldn't find a reliable school before. At least not one that I could afford :lol:
I was thinking about taking a theory course first and acquire some ratings before the exams. It seems like a cheaper alternative than a fully integrated course. :roll:
Can anyone recommend me European ATPL schools that offer affordable ATPL theory training?
Thx

I did Bristol Ground School and found them brilliant (mind you I did them over 10 years ago now). Others rate CATS highly I believe. Trouble is you normally only have experience of the ground school provider you used! ;)

I'm in front of the same decision now. I've used this site to check out some options for myself. Some of these schools are expensive but there are plenty of good offers and cheaper options listed here.

I've attended to the Career ATPL training. It was fast and effective, very professional in my opinion. Some friends did L3 and Bristol, they had a similar experience but it was a long time ago and those schools are a bit more on the pricey side. I couldn't afford those but I've ended up getting an airline job within a few months after my CAA exams due to the membership program my school provided for free.
