Being enrolled on the APP™ constitutes a significant investment in terms of time and money. Although we do not run an initial selection programme as other schools do, it is essential that procedures are in place to protect the APP™ student’s investment and EFT’s high standards.
A review takes place while students train for the first module of the APP™ (including the Private Pilots Licence and associated training). If, as part of this review process, EFT’s senior instructors in consultation with the Head of Training determine that continuation of a student’s training may be unfruitful or be likely to suffer significant delays due to the student’s performance, we may at our discretion disenroll that student from the programme. Students may then choose to continue modular training, which eventually leads to the same qualifications as the Airline Pilot Programme™. However, these students are then not entitled to work for EFT as an intern flight instructor. Alternatively, students may enrol with another school to continue training. However, a compulsory disenrollment from the APP™ programme should certainly prompt students to review their progress and suitability for the career of an airline pilot. A decision to disenrol a student would also be made to protect EFT’s interests, specifically with regard to maintaining its high standards.
A period as intern flight instructor is an integral part of the Airline Pilot Programme™, and at that stage, cadets are the forefront of EFT’s customer relations and instructional professionalism. If we determine that a student may be unable to achieve the standards of captaincy or interpersonal skills required for this position, such students cannot be offered a position as intern flight instructor. However, the sole factor determining whether a position will be offered are the individual’s attributes and performance during training.
Even if you are disenrolled after a performance review during module 1, you will still leave EFT with a completed EASA Private Pilot’s Licence. The review process serves only the purpose of quality assurance, is therefore in the interests of both parties, and not for EFT’s financial gain.

2. Pass each exam within 2 attempts.
