Blue Islands are the only airline based in the Channel Islands (UK) that are certified to provide their own approved ATR training to pilots and cabin crew, both in-house and externally. The local airline is approved under the European regulator EASA as an Approved Training Organisation. The approval means that Blue Islands can now train for initial, annual, recurrent and revalidation training that is required by all flight and cabin crew to become type-rated for the ATR aircraft. The training can be completed at the Blue Islands main operational base in Jersey and their simulator base in Morlaix, France. In addition, Blue Islands were one of the first airlines in Europe to gain approval to issue cabin crew attestations.
