The L3 Airline Academy fleet in the United Kingdom, Portugal and New Zealand.

EASA training fleet

The L3 pilot training fleet is impressive. As part of L3 Commercial Aviation, a global leader in aviation technology, our cadets have access to the very latest training systems from across the business.

Ground training

During your first phase of training, known as ground school or ground training, you will undertake procedure training on interactive Flat-Panel Devices. We use traditional media, blended with the very latest Computer-Based and Tablet-Based technologies. Later stages of ground training will involve advanced flight and Type Rating training in our Full Flight Simulators.

Aircraft fleet

One of the largest fleets in the industry with over 191 aircraft, mainly equipped with Garmin G1000 Electronic Flight Instruments (EFIS) that reflect the avionics technology found on an airliner flight deck. To enhance the safety of our airborne training, we have also specified the very latest version of the airline-style Traffic Advisory System (TAS) to provide our pilots with an 'extra pair of eyes and ears' in the cockpit.
