The work of a professional pilot requires motivation, precision and good nerves and flexibility. The profession is international and allows for employment in the home country or around the world. There are different types of aircraft and you have the opportunity to fly private jets, charter flights. You can fly international long-haul flights or inland commuter flights on scheduled flights. You can carry people, freight, or both. There are many options and each career path is unique.

There are three different ways to become a professional pilot, modular, integrated, and MPL (Multi Pilot License). Modular training is done one by one, that is, one person passes the ratings one by one and builds the whole. This type of study is cheaper than the other two modes of education and also allows you to work while studying. In addition, the modular pathway student is not earmarked for just one airline, making the placement safer and better for the pilot. In the integrated line of study, teaching takes place between 8 and 16 and requires virtually full-time attendance, so it is challenging to integrate work with studies. In addition, integrated study lines cost over € 100,000, which usually requires at least 3 guarantors and, in practice, real collateral equivalent to houses. The ever-tightening loan conditions prevent many potential pilots from studying in an integrated form. In MPL format, a lot of instruction is given on the simulator instead of the real airplanes.
The study line costs almost 100,000 in Finland, which means that many face similar challenges in terms of funding as an integrated study line. In addition, the MPL license holder is earmarked for only one airline. That is, if a person has been to Lufthansa MPL and for some reason Lufthansa would not hire a person then he / she will not be able to go to Finnair to fly even though they both have their own MPL training and are not currently compatible.

In addition, downwind adjustments, unusual postures, and stalling are good things to learn on the right aircraft so you can understand how the aircraft actually behaves. There are often some differences between the simulator and the real machine. Also, in a real machine, you need to be successful and not have to pause like in video games. TTT-Aviation and your partners will manage your training from zero to professional pilot. We train with our own training license a private pilot’s license, a night rating and give the student an airplane lease to complete 100 hours of command flight.
As the only flying school in Finland, we also provide an informal training program for master flying lessons that will prepare you for the professional pilot studies.

Our partner will train you in the professional license, instrument rating, multi-engine, cockpit and upset recovery trainining training. After that, you will be able to apply to airlines around the world. The type rating for large airplanes is either paid by the airline and you agree to be at work for a certain period of time, or you can pay for it yourself.


Because modular training is superior in both cost and flexibility compared to an integrated study line or MPL, you can do one piece at a time and work at the same time, which can reduce the amount of credit you need. In addition, we recommend that you take out a license insurance to cover the cost of pilot training if you are unable to act as a pilot for health reasons.

Starting training

TTT-Aviation has a continuous search on. You can start your studies right away. First, you must go to the AeMC for a medical 1 medical examination, and once you have demonstrated and passed the medical examination, we will begin by developing a personalized study plan and by what schedule your study will be conducted and by machine types.


We offer the most cost effective flight training in Finland and Estonia and our idea is to enable as many pilots as possible. In our opinion, costs should not be an obstacle if the person is otherwise fit and motivated to be a pilot. With TTT-Aviation you can easily pay for your studies in parts and progression. We strive to make things transparent and straightforward, without unnecessary bureaucracy and difficult terms. We talk about things in the right terms and go through all the options and make the final decision on how you want it to go. The basis of the action is the action of the old covenant, that is, done as agreed.
