  • Appointed Capt. Rob Bryce Smith as Head of Training.

  • Launched the AirlineReady™ MCC+JOC following a year in development.

  • Began offering engine ground run training for aircraft engineers, with Boeing themselves becoming our first customers.

  • Added new Flight Training Coordinators, Ian Watson and Jack Newman, to our office team.

  • Extended our office opening to 362 days a year, so you can reach us when you need us.

  • Appointed a dedicated Student Liaison, Cheryl Elliott-Edwards, to look after the needs of visiting students.

  • Recruited over 15 new instructors, mostly current airline Captains, providing capacity to train 200 MCC+JOC students per year.

  • Forged new strategic partnerships with ATOs across Europe, and expanded our links with airlines.

We continue to be inspired and energised by helping aspiring pilots to fulfil their ambitions.

2014 was a record-breaking year for Virtual Aviation Flight Training, and we’ve got some more exciting developments in store for you during 2015.
