APC and Skyborne Airline Academy are launching a partnership that will provide aspiring airline pilots with professional guidance and high-quality theoretical and practical training as they progress on their route to the flight deck.

APC’s free membership allows anyone who registers with APC at Airline Pilot Club to have access to a free AON produced, Pilot Career Psychometric Assessment and free access to airline training department standard e-learning.

APC founder, Captain Andy O’Shea FRAeS along with Skyborne CEO, Lee Woodward share unique experience and connections in the airline industry. This partnership will allow the organisations to leverage these wide-ranging resources so that APC members and Skyborne students benefit from introductions to well-known airlines throughout Europe and the best possible start to an airline pilot career.

APC founder and CEO, Captain Andy O’Shea said: “I am very aware of the quality that Lee and his team provide their trainees. We are excited to give our members access to Skyborne’s training services. With our new free membership and access to great preparation for airline pilot training we are confident that this partnership will provide a superb service for APC members and Skyborne students.”

Skyborne CEO Lee Woodward added: "I have known Andy O’Shea for a long time and have always admired his skill and judgement when it comes to working with FTOs to offer pilot career pathways. As such, Skyborne is delighted to partner with APC. We recently underwent an audit by the APC team in order to be approved. We found the whole review and audit process to be professional, fair, and constructive. I really am delighted with the way things went and am pleased to be working with APC.”

Skyborne has two training locations at Gloucestershire Airport, UK and Vero Beach in Florida, US.
