France - ATO Certified Flight School.
AeroPyrenees Flight Centre trains 200 pilots every year. Aeropyrenees began training pilots in 1970, the year in which Gerard Pic opened the first professional piloting school in the private sector. In 2009, this flight school is still steady on course by adopting new didactic methods, along with modern equipment, which allow to ensure the training timetable is duly respected and much shorter. Since its inception, the school has trained students for over 350,000 hours and eight Airbuses A380 would not be enough to carry all the students that have obtained their licenses and qualifications here.
Based at the Perpignan Airport, Aeropyrenees possesses a fleet of 9 Pipers and Rallyes equipped with IFR. Its income reaches the 1.9 million Euros mark and the company is comprised of 11 full-time employees. Each year, 50 flight instructors and 150 professional pilots are trained. Since 3 years, a section for ATPL(A) has been created, with theory and practical courses for line pilots, of which, the first 2 sessions had a favorable outcome of 95%.
