Leading Edge Aviation, a premier commercial airline pilot training organisation, is excited to announce its ‘Deposit Refund Guarantee’ aimed at providing security and assurance to aspiring pilots.

The aviation industry has seen a significant surge in applications for airline-funded training programmes, leading to uncertainty and delays for many prospective students. To address this, Leading Edge Aviation is offering a full refund of their deposit to any student who secures a spot in an airline-funded training programme after enrolling in a Leading Edge Aviation training programme.

The deposit refund offer launches on 1st September 2023 and will run until 31st December 2023, applicable to all students who sign up for a Leading Edge Aviation training programme during this period.

Andi Alexander, CCO at Leading Edge Aviation, said, “We understand the uncertainty and anxiety that many aspiring pilots are facing in the current landscape. With the ‘Deposit Refund Guarantee’, we want to provide a safety net for those committed to pursuing their dream of becoming a pilot, whether that journey starts with Leading Edge or an airline-funded training programme.”

To qualify for the refund, students must provide official documentation confirming their acceptance into an airline-funded training programme. The deposit paid to Leading Edge Aviation will then be refunded in full.
