Leading Edge Legends!

Published on March 29, 2019

We’d like to thank Amir and Gus for being our first two students for having the courage to take control of their training and join us. Their dedication and trust have paid off and we are very pleased to announce that they both passed their IRs first time.

Their next phase of training starts on Monday as they depart Oxford and train with our friends in Cambridge. VA Airline Training will be their home for the final phase of airline pilot training to undergo the brand-new Airline Prepared Standards Multi-Crew Cooperation (APS MCC) course of training. Moreover, they will be the first pilots in Europe to undergo APS MCC training on VA’s new Airbus A320 simulator.

We wish you all our best over in Cambridge and we’ll see you back in Oxford soon.
We are very proud to have Gus and Amir as our first two Leading Edge Aviation graduates. They took control of their career, aimed higher and set the bar for future trainees.
