What our partners and students say about us
"We have chosen Airline Flight Academy as our exclusive cadet training partnership and our second based APS MCC pilot training partner in Ireland. We are pleased to lend our operational expertise to Airline Flight Academy especially in the provision of what will be an outstanding Type Rating and Airline Pilot Standard MCC. This combination will be the best possible preparation for an airline career with Ryanair"
Capt. Senan O'Shea, Head of Crew Training, Ryanair
"I cannot fault the training I received during my APS MCC at AFA. The three week intensive course was not only a brilliant introduction to the multi-crew environment, it offered a fantastic exposure to airline operations and line flying. The training (conducted in AFA’s state of the art 737 MAX simulator) was very practical, SOP driven and of the highest possible standard. The instructors were incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and encouraging. After completing the course, I felt prepared to sit my airline simulator assessment, and I also feel more equipped now going into my type rating. Big thank you to all at AFA for helping me to this point - I really enjoyed my experience there and already miss it.”
Blaithin, APS MCC student, Ireland
"Taking my APS MCC training at AFA has been both exciting and enjoyable. At the beginning I was debating whether it would have been useful for me as a new CPL pilot to apply for this extensive APS or to go for standard modular MCC, but after finishing I have no doubt it has been worth taking the APS MCC course.
At AFA I found very professional instructors, teaching in a calm and efficient way, and clarifying every single question I had. I can honestly say that this course allowed me to build solid knowledge and skills and made me feel confident, prepared, and ready not only for my future line work but also for my next airline assessment.
Customer service has been also great, and I felt very relaxed even though it has been my first time in Ireland. The overall organization of the course has been outstanding. I received an extensive welcome pack, quick replies from the department in charge, and my schedule has been arranged in such a way that there were no pauses during my training process."
Aleksandr, APS MCC student, Estonia
"I really enjoyed my 5 weeks of training at AFA. Brand-new devices, very professional and knowledgeable instructors and a super-friendly family-kind atmosphere made my training very pleasant and effective. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to enjoy Dublin much due to restrictions, but I will for sure have a lot of fun when I will be coming back for my recurrent training in the near future."
Stefan, Airbus A320 type rating student, Germany
"My experience with AFA has been fantastic: the whole team is really friendly and helpful, and the training sessions I had with the instructors have been really rewarding since the beginning.
I can only be thankful for the professionalism and support from Airline Flight Academy. Thank you for giving me the best possible training that has enabled me to successfully be accepted to take part in the Ryanair Cadet Pilot Program"
Antia, Simulator Assessment Preparation student, Spain
"I passed my Ryanair Mentored APS MCC at the Airline Flight Academy on the Boeing 737 Max. It was a really nice training, the pedagogy and knowledge of all our instructors helped us a lot and It was really nice to learn in a such good atmosphere! We were really happy with the ground and flight lessons of our instructors. They are just really great!
The whole AFA team was also very friendly and welcoming! It was also really nice to learn in a brand new center with new Simulators!
I highly recommend the AFA for the APS MCC."
Ludovic, APS MCC student, France
"Great facilities with the latest equipment, and instructors who truly go the extra mile to help you. Well worth a visit if you are in need of a sim session!"
