Mohamed,

I believe Chris answered your question previously but I’m not sure where it went. I was not aware that Islam prevented the practice of loans with interest? If you know of Muslim banks that will give loans without interest I suggest you contact one of them. All ATP’s financial sources only offer conventional (with interest) financing.

On a side note you’re only 16 which is great because it gives you some time to do some research. During that time I recommend you work on your English skills as that’s a requirement for pilots worldwide. English is the official language of the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) and being proficient is a requirement.
