ACS Aviation Managing Director, Graeme Frater highlights the significance of using modern flight simulators at the school: “The demand for pilots is rapidly increasing in the UK and Europe. Flight training is also evolving and there’s now a greater need for applications that offer total immersion and simulator devices that replicate the features and sensations of a real flight. Simulators are an essential component in the training of professional pilots to teach them about the instruments they will use to navigate and certain procedures they will encounter.”

In partnership with Scottish Enterprise, ACS Aviation has been working closely with Skills Development Scotland and ScotGrad to develop young people. In one of its latest initiatives, ACS Aviation has sponsored two young pilots towards their Fight Instructor rating with the guarantee of a permanent contract once qualified.
