with Hields Aviation and Bristol and Wessex Aeroplane Club
The Aeros Group are pleased to announce two new training partnerships with Hields Aviation and Bristol & Wessex Aeroplane Club. The announcement forms the basis of The Aeros Group’s mission to make flight training and the airline industry more accessible across the UK.
These new partnerships will allow both DTOs to offer the Aeros complete Fastrack training program to their customers. Students will be able to complete the first part of their training at their chosen DTO, located at either Leeds Bradford Airport or Bristol Airport, before moving seamlessly onto an Aeros Academy of their choice. There they will complete their ATPL’s, with Cat3C, and further commercial training.
The Aeros Group outsource to training partners in areas of the country that are underserved in terms of complete commercial flight training, making Aeros more attainable to customers across the UK. The structured modular course, established to make the airline industry more accessible to all, can be delivered seven days a week and gives potential future pilots the opportunity to learn to fly commercially without having to join an integrated course.
With more locations across the country available for the structured modular course, students are able to complete their flight training whilst retaining current employment and living at home. This partnership means The Aeros Group now have seven locations across the UK covering Bristol, Cardiff, Gloucester, Stratford-upon-Avon, Coventry, Doncaster, and Leeds, with further future partnerships due to be announced shortly in other parts of the UK.
Rob Hields, Proprietor and Head of Training at Hields Aviation in Leeds said “I am pleased that our fixed-wing training school at Leeds Bradford airport has now officially “linked” with Aeros Ltd. We have been selected to train their local students to PPL standard, provide hours-building packages, and then return the students to other Aeros centres for CPL and Multi-Engine Instrument training to complete their modular route to “industry-ready” standards. This means in effect that our own students who wish to take advantage of the advanced courses offered will simply be able to complete their training at any Aeros branch under the Aeros approvals. It is a simpler and more efficient method of offering the full facility to our own customers. I would encourage our aspiring commercial pilots to take full advantage of the facilities on offer, and suggest taking a look at the Aeros website.”
Barry Bailey, Head of Training at Bristol & Wessex Aeroplane Club said “Bristol & Wessex Aeroplane Club is steeped in history, having started flight training in 1927. We are extremely pleased to join the Aeros Training in Partnership program and see it as another significant step in our history. We now have the ability to offer a seamless modular course with an established ATO for our aspiring commercial pilots.”
Nick Dunn, The Aeros Group CEO commented, “We are thrilled to be announcing these training partnerships with Hields Aviation and Bristol & Wessex Aeroplane Club. They are both excellent training organisations with a wealth of experience and knowledge, and will give so much to all that train with them. Partnerships based around our structured modular training programme will open up a range of opportunities for potential customers who might not have been able to begin their training due to the inflexibility of time or cost, or due to location. It brings so much potential for both future customers and The Aeros Group. We are extremely excited to begin working with Hields Aviation and Bristol & Wessex Aeroplane Club and can’t wait to see what the future holds for us all.”
