The graduation ceremony for L3 Airline Academy is always a grand, jolly affair with lots of happy newly qualified pilots, many with jobs, and hugely relieved parents celebrating together with L3 staff and instructors.
The latest ceremony was held recently with 356 graduate pilots, marking the successful completion of their training. It was held at the Sofitel Hotel, London T5, hosted by Robin Glover-Faure, President of L3 CTS.
