Commercial Pilot

Almost all of our career programs based in the United Kingdom, Europe or New Zealand (EASA/NZCAA) and some of our pilot training programs in the United States (FAA) are designed to prepare you for becoming a Commercial Pilot. We work closely with airlines around the globe to place our graduates in the role of Co-Pilot on a passenger aircraft.

Flight Instructor

Some of our graduates choose to become Certified Flight Instructors, training the next generation of Pilots on the ground, in the sky and in our simulators. This type of work suits Pilots who prefer to be home-based as generally no overnight flying is required.
