Italy’s Aviomar Flight Academy has signed an agreement with Intesa Sanpaolo, one of Italy’s major banks, to provide future pilots with loans for professional flight training courses.
The loans require no personal or guardian guarantee and have a flexible pay-back scheme which starts two years after the course is completed.
They will be available for Aviomar’s Integrated ATPL and APS MCC courses from September 2019 and are subject to a merit-based student entry assessment. The loan scheme will allow students to finance up to 50% of the course fees at reduced interest rates.
Capt Riccardo Marano of Aviomar said, “We are delighted to be offering this fantastic opportunity for aspiring pilots with the aim of reducing the financial access barrier often imposed by course fees to many high-potential and deserving students.
Aviomar Flight Academy is an EASA approved training organisation located in Rome, Italy, founded in 1982 by Capt Riccardo Marano. The academy has a fleet of 18 aircraft, three simulators and 42 instructors.
As part of a recent investment plan, the academy has opened a brand new simulator training centre north of Rome which features three full-flight simulator bays and a fixed base MPS simulator.
