What do you enjoy most about being a student at Airways Aviation?

Airways feels like a family. We get an amazing chance to work with people from all over the world with different backgrounds and cultures. Everyone knows everyone, and we all support one another to achieve the same dream of becoming commercial pilots.

Our instructors clearly care about us as individuals and want to see us become the best pilots we can be.

Our class sizes are small and normally have no more than 15 people per course. This makes it much easier to focus and you can ask as many questions as you need without feeling like you’re taking up too much time.

What did you do before you started training?

Before starting my integrated course at Airways Aviation in Oxford, I Studied Aeronautical Engineering at Tripoli University in Libya. I helped me a lot with subjects like Aircraft General Knowledge and Principles of Flight as I had studied most of it before at a more basic level.

What advice would you give to anyone considering training as a pilot?

It’s not going to be easy! As the Airways team will tell you from your first conversation to the first day of school, this will be the hardest training you will undertake in your life. But it’s so worth the ride.

Fulfil your dream of becoming a pilot and you will meet people from all over the world studying for that same dream.
