Egnatia Aviation is not just a school that provides major Airlines with pilots; it is an Academy that creates well-trained pilots in each category of specialisation. From Private Pilot Licenses to well trained professionals, Egnatia Aviation offers industry specific curricula for all kinds of Pilot Licenses, approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency and following the latest international aviation standards.
Strictly following our mission statement, Egnatia Aviation is committed to provide the best flight training conditions in Europe for the future commercial and private pilots. Egnatia Aviation combines the excellent flying training weather of Greece, modern facilities in an international airport, with new, modern training aircraft and simulator, experienced instructors and the best study guides to provide very competitively priced training packages that include all CAA and airport fees, and accommodation available at very competitive prices.
Egnatia Aviation was founded in 2006 and since then, more than 1.500 pilots from 57 countries have been trained. It is to be mentioned that 65% of those students are international. Each and every training year Egnatia Aviation’s fleet records over 14.000 hrs of flight time, a number that not only is greater than all the other aviation schools in Greece together, but it makes us one of the largest flight schools in Europe.
Every graduate finds work. 91% of our graduates find airline employment within a year in one of the leading domestic and global airlines, such as Aegean Airlines, Olympic Air, Ryanair, EasyJet, Qatar Airways, Emirates, Air Arabia, Kuwait Airways, Iraqi Airways, Oman Air and others. Egnatia Aviation has established an active partnership with Qatar Aeronautical College for the training of Qatar Airways pilots. The cooperation to provide the Air Arabia MPL Flight Training Phase for their cadets has already strengthened Egnatia Aviation’s training position and we are currently considered by other airlines as a main option for their training needs.
Considering the amount of Egnatia Aviation’s fleet flight time, maintenance is top priority for us. Therefore Egnatia Aviation operates its own EASA approved maintenance centre with fully experienced aircraft engineers. The daily inspection and maintenance, always according to the manufacturer’s standards, makes our fleet fully operational with one of the lowest downtimes in Europe. Moreover, Egnatia Aviation is an active member of International Associations of Aviation Committees aiming to improve even more safety standards and optimise flight training methods.
Egnatia Aviation is here to meet every single need of yours in the process of obtaining a pilot license, in the advanced training, and in the conversion of your license. With integrated or flexible, modular programs, we are here to form a training course that will suit your own pace. But, in any case, each curriculum follows the strictest specifications and the highest requirements, though it will always be configured in such a way that you will be the centre of it.
