Academy open days
Our doors are always open for a chat and a cuppa, but our open days are special. You'll get the chance to speak with students, instructors, and our first officer graduates who fly for the airlines, all while touring one of our academies and seeing the training aircraft up close. Keep an eye on our news section and social media for information on our upcoming open days.

Our students success
Our graduates fly for a huge variety of airlines and we feel privileged to have helped so many students achieve the role of First Officer and start their airline career. Our graduates fly for British Airways, Ryanair, easyJet, Turkish, Norwegian and Emirates to name just a few.
Beyond your PPL
We're proud of our training, our graduates and our ethos. Following your dream doesn't need to cost the earth, that's why we've priced our Night Rating and IR(R) Rating course competitively. We take the hassle out of your training, and get you to airline employment-ready as quickly and as safely as we can. After all, reputation is everything.
The Night Rating course comprises 5 hours of night flying, including navigation and circuits, at an aerodrome. There is also a small amount of theoretical knowledge instruction, but no exam.
Reputation above all else
Our training reputation means a lot to us, that's why we pride ourselves on the quality of training we deliver and the success of our student graduates in airline employment.
The IR(R) Rating, IMC Rating, allows you to fly in more challenging weather conditions. The course consists of 15 hours of flight instruction, theoretical knowledge lessons and an exam, and an IR(R) Rating Skills Test.
Upgrading your PPL
Once you have your PPL you should consider upgrading to include ratings that allow you to fly at night and/or in less favourable weather conditions – known as Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC). The Night Rating and IR(R) Rating are just that.
