What our graduates say

The aircraft used for the physical flight training are just amazing. The data fusion in the cockpit is incredibly impressive. The highly experienced instructors were so helpful. I’m so proud to be an Airbus trained pilot!


Yi-Tah | Class of 2020

It was challenging but such an amazing experience. As a woman, gender has never made any difference. Supported by my instructors and classmates, the strong group cohesion that had grown definitely contribute to our success.


Zoé | Class of 2019

Two years ago I entered the school knowing little to nothing about what it is to be a pilot and now I leave with a new set of competencies, habits and attitudes that will take me far in the aviation world.
