Keys to choose the best flight school for your training


When you choose a career, you also have to choose where to study. In some cases, the choice is easy since there is only one center that offers such studies. In others, the choice may be more complicated since the offer is very extensive.

Here are some tips to help you choose the most suitable training center:

  • First of all, it must be a Flight School authorizedto give courses and training for pilot licenses and qualifications related to the aeronautical sector. It has to be what it is call an  ATO – Authorized Training Organization, approved by the State Aviation Safety Agency (AESA). Visit our article What is an ATO? to solve your doubts.
  • Qualifications offered– It is essential to evaluate the type of courses, exams pass rates,   flight instructors experience, aircrafts models and number available as well as their age and maintenance. World Aviation Maintenance is our own maintenance shop, with more than 25 years of experience.
  • It is also important to consider the weather conditionsin the area where the ATO is located. There are some meteorological minimums required by the authority so that schools can carry out flight operations. On the days these minimums are not met, the planes remain on the ground and scheduled flights are canceled, so to find a favorable location is crucial in order to have a non-stop training.
    World Aviation has three operational bases  in MadridMálaga and Girona, which allows training under different weather conditions and flight rules. Our pilot school in Malaga is located at the International Airport, with unbeatable conditions for training.
  • Instructors, school team and environment. A nice school atmosphere with a team of experienced professionals who will supervise the student’s training and progress at all times, being close and reachable, is key for a smooth apprenticeship.
  • The school facilitiesmust provide all what’s necessary for the students to develop and complete both their theoretical and practical training.
    World Aviation has more than 2,500m2 in continuous growth, with a fleet of 10 fixed-wing aircrafts and 9 rotary-wing aircrafts, 2 Airbus A320 simulators, 1 Airbus A330 simulator, and 1 helicopter simulator, in addition to five types of drone, to offer the best and widest pilot training so as to meet the strong demand in the sector.
  • An important disbursement will be made, so the Pricesmust be transparent, making clear what is included and what is not, as well as the Payment Conditions.
