Start your training today

If you start commercial pilot training now, the airline industry will be in a completely different place by the time you finish!

This means there is no need to delay your ATPL theory based on the current situation.

In fact, if you choose to stretch your training out to 18-20 months, you might just be in the perfect position to take advantage of a recovering airline industry.

We’ve taken our industry-leading ATPL courses online during this period, so you won’t miss out on training, and our instructors will still be able to help you with those tricky subjects and questions.

You can take part in live, interactive webinars from the comfort of your own home, and if you miss something and want to go over it again, we’ve made our webinar recordings available as well.

You won’t be alone on the course either – we have an online group where BGS students can connect with each other and ask for advice.

If you have any questions about studying this way, or about our courses, we’re here to help – you can email our training advisor at
