Private Pilot Licence
Thank you all very much for getting me through my Commercial Pilot License (CPL), MEP & MEIR. I really enjoyed all the flight training and found everyone at Aeros to be friendly, professional, highly skilled and knowledgeable.

Easily the best Pilot Training outfit I have ever flown with. Every part of the experience was excellent, from the aircraft to the staff who are all exceptionally helpful, patient and very understanding. They all went far beyond what was expected. I will definitely be returning to complete my instructor course.
I visited all the integrated schools but was concerned I would only be a number in a big regimented system. I wanted to be trained as an individual at my own pace with a dedicated instructor. I found this at Aeros, passed my courses first time and now have money left to pay for a type rating to get a job. And no debt!
