UKFlying recommends Pathway Pilot Training based near Edinburgh. They are ELCAS approved, a good location for the Northern and Scottish bases, excellent Av Exam question bank and offer distance learning courses to fit around work. Here are their details:


Pathway Pilot Training ( is a specialist independent ATPL(A) ground school; the quality of our reference materials and teaching is second to none.  You do not have to take our word for it - please look at the endorsements and testimonials we have had from previous students on our website and Facebook page.  


Our DL courses are flexible and you work to an individual study plan agreed in advance to suit your needs.  Our teaching schedules are geared to the CAA Exam Centre in Ayr, Scotland, with intense brush-up days in each subject available before taking the exams to ensure that you are well prepared.  Included in the course is a full set of Padpilot iBooks with inbuilt CBT progress tests, a year’s subscription to the AvExam Question Bank (current best source of previous exam questions), attendance at up to 12 brush-up days and unlimited access to the TKIs for advice during the course.


Our class sizes are relatively small, so you get good individual tuition from our expert and highly experienced ATPL instructors (half are ex-military). We use PadPilot iBooks as reference material – the best on the market and used by many good ground schools.  The CAA exams are usually taken at a reasonable pace in batches of 3 to optimise your results which has worked very well for recent students.  Exactly 50% of our graduates over the last year have managed to achieve an average exam mark for the 14 subjects in excess of 90% and only one got an average of less than 85%.  Recent students have managed to secure first airline jobs straight away with Ryanair, Flybe and Loganair. All excellent jobs for building airline experience and flying skills.


We are conveniently located in Rosyth Europarc (10-minute drive from Edinburgh Airport just off the M90 and with easy ground transport links) with plenty of reasonably priced overnight accommodation nearby. Visitors always welcome!
