    Pilot training loans

    Pilot training loans 5th Jul 18 at 1:01 PM
    Is anybody aware of a company or bank that will offer loans over 10 years, for pilots or just in general, of 55,000, secured with a property obviously (of which is worth 135,000), and that comes with holiday period of 18 months or upward. I'm aware these a very niche and rare. BBVA used to provide this service, targeted at future pilots, but it was withdrawn last year.
    Our aim is to take out a secured loan over 10 years, against the property, of 55,000,and have the holiday period so that upon completion of the training, you can pay back, at an increased rate because of the holiday, a set amount each month. Alternatively, are there any companies or banks that will allow you to pay reduced amounts back in the 18 months and then upon completion of training increase your payments. And finally, does anybody know of any companies or banks that offer loans and schemes targeted directly at pilots or pilot training.
    Thank alot,
    ~Thomas.

    Thomas, Google is your freind here.

    Your enquiry is very niche, no one will know off the top of their heads.

    you could also try the search facility on the forum, as it has been posted about before.

    My local uni runs a pilot training course. You attend uni to learn the theory and fly at a local airfield. Might that be cheaper? Or apply to airlines as a trainee? I'm guessing this is commercial not just for leisure?

    The modular course I am interested in is 61,250, however we only need to borrow 55,000. L3 is a major integrated ATPL provider, which tend to be more expensive than the smaller schools providing modular routes.

    Have you asked on PPrune? This should be a good source of information about finance for the ATPL.
