New! Aerospace Careers Zone

Come and find your future in aviation in the new Aerospace Careers Zone.

The new Aerospace Careers Zone has been created to showcase the many different careers available in the booming aerospace sector. These include air traffic control, airport operations, engineers, maintenance providers and flight operations.



The pilot training journey

Training to be a pilot is a unique learning experience, which is character-building, complex, and challenging. The training demands high levels of self-discipline and determination, across a variety of physiological and practical skill-sets. But success will reward those who meet the required high standards, with a well-respected, exciting and fulfilling career.

Ask any professional pilot and they will tell you… despite the early morning starts in the depths of winter, delayed flight schedules and irregular work patterns, they would not change their career for any other.

By visiting this website you could have already made the first step to becoming a pilot. Take the next step and book your tickets now. Make it part of your checklist.
