Top in Europe
Join a dream team
There are several reasons that rank Egnatia Aviation in the top five Airline pilot training Academies in Europe. The unique Philosophy, the modern fleet, the state-of-the-art facilities, the training simulator and international certifications and approvals, could be some of these reasons.
Numbers do matter
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.
To maintain the rankings
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.
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.
