There is no difference in the high quality of the BGS classroom tuition by attending the school or joining the online classes; I have done both. The webinars and the flexible online revision options have meant I can complete my studies around my job and in my own home environment. The recorded webinars are a valuable resource to refer back to for detailed instruction at one’s own convenience, for previously viewed and interacted subject instruction.

First Officer, Vietnam Airlines

The ATPL distance learning course with Bristol was amazing. I passed all my theory exams first time, with an average score of 92%+!!!

Your fame precedes you, and I had no doubt for a moment about where I would do my ATPL theory courses. The distance learning with Bristol was amazing, the online question bank was even then ahead of its time and the brush-up courses just helped to complete an excellent preparation. I passed all my theory exams first time, with an average score of 92%+!!!

I completed my CPL/IR and MCC, and after a thorough selection process, I joined the cadet program of Vietnam Airlines in September 2015 and I am now proudly working as a First Officer for Vietnam Airlines.

Bristol Groundschool are fantastic! All of the materials are superb and the iPad app was a life saver! It made all of the study so easy and it meant I could take the study materials into work and do some revision in the back galley on my break!

The revision weeks are superb; they really prepare you for the exams not just with the knowledge but with the vital exam technique which is key to getting first time passes.

Thank you Bristol Groundschool for all your help getting me to where I am today!

Being a working mum, re-training to become an airline pilot was something I knew would not be easy, but after researching the modular route, I realised that it could be possible.

I found Bristol Ground School were local to me, so I went to visit them, and signed up for the ATPL course that week. The distance learning and week-long classroom courses at the end of each module fitted in very well with my other commitments. I found the iPad software and lesson format with regular tests to be a great way to absorb the information.

The Bristol Groundschool revision weeks were a great way to consolidate the information with very experienced and supportive teachers. I managed to do the course in 16 months, and went on do my CPL/MEIR shortly afterwards, and very soon after finished my training, I was offered a Second Officer position at Easyjet!. I am well into the line training at the moment and loving it.

Thank you to the BGS team for helping me through the course and making this possible!

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.
