Egnatia Aviation in Kavala, Greece has received EASA approval for its in-house ATPL examination centre.
“This marks a big milestone for the Academy and a big step forward for the ab-initio pilot training industry,” said George Triantafyllidis, Business Development & Facilities Management Director.
“Egnatia Aviation cadets can now undertake their official EASA ATPL exams, in-house, under the supervision of HCAA.”
Egnatia says the advantages of the in-house examination centre are:
- More efficient time management
- Exams on a monthly basis
- No additional costs for travelling at CAA’s premises (Athens)
- Optimisation of long term scheduling
“Once again Egnatia demonstrates its credibility and dedication to providing its cadets with the best training conditions! added George.
Egnatia Aviation was founded in 2006 and since then, more than 2,550 pilots from 57 countries have been trained with 65% of those students international. One of Egnatia’s key points is that annually it records more than 20,000 hrs of flight time, making it one of the largest in Europe.
