RYANAIR has launched their first training academy for pilots – and you only need to have A-Levels to apply.

The new base in Rome will train up to 400 pilots in the next five years, being trained by the Aviomar Flight Academy international flight school instructors.

Successful applicants who become Ryanair pilots earn on average £135,000, according to their website.

To apply, all you need to have are A-Levels which you have passed, no matter the grade.

The course takes up to four years, where successful applicants will join the Ryanair fleet with over 85 bases across Europe.

To be a pilot, you must be under the age of 65 and have the right to work in the EU.

You must also have flown at least 3,500 hours, which will be part of the course, as well as have been a pilot in command for 800 hours.

The next 18-month training course in Rome starts again in April, with applications closing on March 30, and you can also apply for the November training course by October.

Following the 18 months training, applicants will then be trained on the Ryanair Boeing 737-800 Type Rating Course.

The low-cost airline has plans to grow their fleet to 585 aircraft carriers by 2025, meaning more pilots are needed.

A pilot shortage across the world has sparked concern as more people fly than ever due to cheap fares.

Some airlines are offering up to tax-free salaries up to £354,000 to entice new pilots.
