Location

With flight training available at both Thruxton Airfield in the UK and in Tampa, Florida in the USA we can tailor your training package in the most time efficient and cost effective way. We are also able to provide accommodation and travel options at both locations.

Experience

Undoubtedly you will be leaving the Military with a wealth of Instrument flying. This will see you joining the wider world of commercial aviation with a huge skill-set to offer.

Accreditation

The accreditation that your military flying affords you can be complicated but at Vantage Aviation we will tailor all your training to your exact needs dependent on background and your intended career path in the Commercial world.  The civilian course depends on what type of IR you held in the Military; in simple terms a Procedural Rating (Non-Restricted) will allow training as required to issue a Civilian IR.  Please contact us so we can discuss the options available to you.

Location

Flight training is available from both Thruxton Airfield in the UK and in Tampa, Florida in the USA.  We are able to provide accommodation and travel options at both locations.
