This programme allows cadets training towards pilot licenses from the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to complete basic flight training at the US Airline Academy. The first UK class began training in May 2022.
 
The move, in response to commercial airline industry and cadet customer feedback, allows L3Harris to expand its UK and European training and maximize its international Academy footprint.
 
“It has been a long-term plan for us to offer our cadets the opportunity to train for their UK and European qualifications at our US Academy,” said David Cox, US Flight Academy Director, L3Harris. “It will allow us to more efficiently use our world-class facilities, while providing cadets an exciting opportunity to live and fly in ideal weather conditions and be close to world-famous tourist destinations and beaches.”
 
The Academy offers pilot training programs by experienced instructors for unparalleled learning experiences and offers cadets best in class facilities on campus, including modern training aircraft  in a fleet of over 60 single and multi-engine aircraft and the latest flight simulators.
