Strategic move brings leading pilot education and training provider to London Oxford Airport
London, March 4, 2016: Airways Aviation is establishing global headquarters at London Oxford Airport, United Kingdom, supporting its rapid global expansion strategy.
Airways Aviation relocates to Airways House at the Oxford-based airport in April, as demand for high-calibre commercial flight training has seen its UK-based cadet numbers doubled in 2015. Cadet numbers are predicted to rise to at least 150 in the coming year with similar numbers expected at other Airways Aviation Academies in Australia and approximately 30 in Montenegro.
As well as receiving EASA-approved training at London Oxford Airport, cadets will be able to fly from Airways Aviation’s recently opened fair-weather flying base in Huesca, Spain. The strategic move to a new global HQ at Oxford, from the company’s previous UK base in Coventry, positions Airways Aviation for significant international growth in the coming years to meet increasing industry demand for skilled commercial pilots.
Airways Aviation CEO says:
“Airways Aviation is growing rapidly and our new Oxford base gives us much-needed space to expand our world-class training facilities. Cadets will have access to unrivalled training technology including DA42 simulators, latest eLearning system, high performance Hawker Business Jet and small class sizes that will deliver resilient training and prepare them for the aviation industry.”
“From our recently launched Elite Pathways programme to our collaborations with universities, Asia-based cabin crew training and foundation schools, we are carefully crafting an outstanding aviation training and education solution that goes beyond simply teaching to internationally-recognised standards. It is our goal that every cadet graduates genuinely industry-ready, capable and able to tackle the challenges that aviation presents,”
Andi Alexander, London Oxford Airport managing director, says:
“Having another global player in the professional pilot training arena based at Oxford further confirms our historic position as one of the world’s pre-eminent pilot training hubs. We’re delighted that Airways Aviation will bring innovative new capabilities and methods to an airport that has seen the start of tens of thousands of pilots’ careers, who have joined more than 90 airlines around the globe over the last 75 years.”
Alongside the new HQ, Airways Aviation has a strong portfolio of pilot training academies across the globe, including EASA-certified schools in Spain and Australia. The Australian flight school is also CASA-certified. It boasts a worldwide network of foundation schools including China, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Dubai and Lebanon, with plans to bring another 30 online within the next 18 months.
