Financing options (only applicable to select Nationals)

What is the government guaranteed loan?

Each student is eligible for a loan, even though their resources or family conditions do not allow them to provide a deposit. The state guarantees 70% of the amount borrowed. In addition, the bank chosen as the lending institution supports the remaining 30%. However, not all banks offer this service. The student must choose to go to one of these affiliated banks: Société Générale, Crédit Agricole, Crédit Mutuel, Banque Postale, Banque Populaire, CIC, Caisses d’Épargne or BFCOI. Some, (such as Société Générale), are among the cheapest banks in terms of loan rates, savings accounts, fees abroad, commissions received, opposition fees, etc. If you want to have your bank account domiciled in one of the banks mentioned above, carefully compare the bank offers that will make the difference between each establishment.

Our local banking partner, Société Générale de Lattes, offers all future students of Airways Aviation financing at a preferential fixed rate of 1.39%, with a delay in the first monthly payments. Obtaining a student loan is subject to the validation of the file by the Bank. (Funding applications cannot be accepted for students whose parents have no tax declaration in France and / or no assets declared in France). In order not to delay your return to school, funding requests must be submitted several months in advance.

Previous experience

If you hold an Airplane PPL (EASA), you can request, when you return to Airways Aviation / ESMA or when registering, to take an in-flight assessment, so that you can be credited with hours allowed. This flight will take place once the theoretical ATPL has been obtained. This hourly credit will depend on the quality of your driving (maximum credit 40 hours).
