CAA Exams
Adam Fox training to become a commercial pilot

“The BGS online ATPL training course, including webinars and revision weeks provides students with maximum flexibility to train, at a time that best suits them.”

Bristol Groundschool came highly recommended from my flight school and their results speak for themselves.

Since the Covid-19 outbreak BGS has been very much on the ball and has switched their revision weeks online which has allowed me to continue studying.  They have now launched a completely online course which I think is a great way forward. It provides students with maximum flexibility to train, at a time that best suits them.  The learning material is excellent and the online webinars and revision weeks are run really well and are great for learning the subjects and building confidence prior to the exams.

As I am taking Austro exams its very reassuring to see that exams are already taking place at BGS again. Bristol were the last ATO offering exams before lock down and the first to restart.

From start to finish, Bristol Groundschool is a fantastic school to do ATPL’s with. The course material is easy to use, very well explained and thought of. The brush up courses though are the best thing about Bristol. You meet great people and are taught by knowledgeable and interesting instructors.

There were times I would study at home for hours not understanding something, then at the brush up, the amazing instructors would have me understanding it in half an hour.  Above all, the support Bristol give through a very hard course is wonderful, there is always someone there to help should you, if you need it.

I would highly recommend training for ATPL’s with them.

I couldn’t recommend Bristol Groundschool enough – from the ATP digital software and the revision week, to the massive and really up-to-date question bank – bgsonline, the whole package together with the great support from the whole BGS team made it easier than I expected.

Without the forward leaning and innovative approach employed by Bristol Groundschool, I doubt I would have passed all 14 exams before the 31 Dec 20 transition deadline.  The instructors and support team have all been outstanding.

The material has also been excellent and broken down into easily manageable chunks.  The fact that I have managed to pass all exams first time with a 95% average pass mark despite a busy and unpredictable full-time military career is testament to the quality of the digital material.

The past 18 months have been the busiest and most challenging of my life and not just due to the pressures of ATPL Theory. In addition to commanding my team on overseas deployments to the Middle East, Asia and the Caribbean, I found myself at the centre of the UK’s response to COVID-19, supporting the construction of the NHS Nightingale Hospital London, designing potential mobile testing units and helping to deliver UK Covid-19 Mega labs.  Throughout all of this, the flexible and bitesize nature of the lessons and learning programme meant I could still continue my studies regardless of where I was or how busy.

Furthermore, the webinars and virtual revision weeks meant I still felt well prepared for each exam.

Bristol Groundschool is an amazing school, you helped me so much to pass all my exams first time with an average pass rate of 93%.

The school is a really great place to come and study, the instructors are very good and interesting, highlighting all the right things. It is also a very pleasant environment too, where you can really focus on your lessons. I will be recommending Bristol GS to anyone who wants to pass their ATPL. The question bank is also great and always up-to-date.
