    After searching round many flying schools with the aim of perusing a career in the Civilian helicopter industry I was recommended this academy. Not only was the location perfect but on first impressions the staff were very helpful in providing me with all the details I needed to make my informed decision.

    I was an experienced military pilot but had never flown procedural before but thanks to the very professional and knowledgeable instructors I passed the IR test first time. Overall the friendly team of both management and instructors made the IR course a great and pleasurable experience and therefore I would not hesitate in endorsing this academy.
