The pilot training journey

Training to be a pilot is a unique learning experience, which is character-building, complex, and challenging.

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.
