A brand new flying training academy has opened its doors in the UK and is offering future young pilots the opportunity to learn the foundation skills required to pursue a career in aviation.
Virtual Aerospace UK features 3 professional level fixed base Boeing 737-800 simulator to give students the most realistic training experience available.
Course modules are split between briefings where the student learns the theory involved in flight and the simulator … where students apply the practical knowledge they have learnt.
The 5-hour Future Young Pilot Program is designed to equip senior school students (aged 13 years and upwards) with the skills required to move onto the formal stages of training and a full ATPL course.
The student will leave this course with an above average knowledge of the 737-800 aircraft and practice the key skills required to become an airline pilot. They will receive a digital certificate of completion and if required, they will be eligible for their 2 bars (2 Epaulettes) on course completion.
