"I found Skies through the recommendation of another satisfied customer. I was not disappointed.
I completed my ATPL conversion via distance learning, and the MCC course shortly thereafter.
The school was incredibly flexible and helped me achieve my goals while still working full time overseas.
The flight instructors are friendly and incredibly professional. The support staff on the ground are amazing. They respond quickly and clearly to all communications and were an absolute pleasure to work with.
I highly recommend Skies Aviation Academy."

The school provides a good Infrastructure, staff are very friendly and professional and were always helpful in every situation.

" I had the great luck to complete my professional training at Skies Aviation Academy. Not only I was trained by the highest training standards, I was given the chance to finish everything in minimum time and minimum hours. My interaction with the people of Skies Aviation Academy has been an amazing experience. "
"From the moment I enquired about the conversion course right up until completion, Skies Aviation was helpful in all ways. They maintained a professional attitude towards my training yet made it very comfortable and fun! The instructors are knowledgable and had in depth understanding of what it’s like to be an aviation student which really helped. Although there were some delay due to weather, we still made most of the time by studying and making sure I was ready for the Skills test. I passed my FAA to EASA Conversion course flying colours and even stayed to complete my MCC/JOC which was the most fun I’ve had! I would definitely recommended the flight school! "
