VA Placement Support

90% of our Graduates secure employment within 3 months of completing their training with us. We are very proud of this statistic, but are committed to improving it further. Graduates of selected VA programmes are able to call upon our support to help you secure your first airline role. 

VA’s strength lies in our ability to build and maintain strong partnerships. Our airline customer relationships are as important to us as is our relationship with our cadets and graduate pilots. Maintaining this focus means we are trusted to recommend our graduates to a growing number of airlines.
