The Airways Aviation Group has announced the acquisition of Coventry UK based Atlantic Flight Training (AFT) during the recent opening ceremony for its new pilot training and air charter facilities in Montenegro.
AFT is a key component in the Airways Aviation Group realising its greater strategic objectives including an expected rapid international scaling and expansion of its modular and integrated EASA training programmes. AFT is also planning to introduce Helicopters alongside of its existing Aeroplane Pilot Training offerings. Airways Aviation is currently the only academy in Australia that offer both Private and Commercial Fixed and Rotor Wing flight training.
The expanded group now boasts bases in Coventry and Bournemouth in the UK, the Gold Coast and Caloundra, Australia and Podgorica, Montenegro along with facilities in Aqaba, Jordan via its partnership with Ayla Aviation Academy.
The group has also started to offer bespoke Aviation Foundation and Pilot Pathway courses in Dubai with further classes also beginning in Amman and Kuala Lumpur in October, 2014.
“Our research and due diligence provided strong indications that Atlantic Flight Training Coventry was one of only a few properly established & resourced academies in the United Kingdom that offered EASA approved modular and integrated courses and that also carried Tier Four Visa approvals allowing international student recruitment. AFT is therefore a significant investment that is tracking to provide a great enhancement to our overall strategic objectives” says Romy Hawatt, Group CEO – Airways Aviation.
