PFA and IAGO join forces

Sandefjord, NORWAY – 20 November 2020: Pilot Flight Academy has partnered with IAGO Flight Training to offer and deliver fully integrated training solutions for their customers. Pilot Flight Academy will now be able to offer type ratings and instructor courses beyond their Integrated ATPL program.
PFA’s Integrated Airline Transport Pilots Licence (ATPL) programme is designed around producing high quality First Officers with significant multi engine time, unlike many other Academies in Europe. Pilot Flight Academy is one of Europe’s largest and most modern flight academies and is located at Sandefjord airport Torp and Notodden airport Tuven. The Academy has a large international environment with 400 students. Frode Granlund, Chief Executive Officer PFA: “We are delighted to welcome our new partner IAGO Flight Training. PFA is gaining the worldwide recognition it deserves and we can now offer fully integrated commercial pilot training solutions with this new partnership.”
The Avion A320 Level D Full Flight Simulator (FFS) deployed to the Avion IAGO Flight Training Centre at London Gatwick will support this new training agreement. The Avion A320 FFS has the Airbus Standard 2.0 CEO and NEO configurations available. Designed to also ensure effective and industry leading UPRT can be delivered, Avion has developed an innovative, best in class simulator training platform. “More now than ever airlines are seeking flexible, cost effective and trusted training collaborations. The strengths of PFA and IAGO will combine to provide a first in class integrated training pathway”, explains James Kingdon-Leach, Managing Director IAGO. Over 20 years IAGO has emerged as a leading provider of differentiated commercial pilot training, increasingly recognised as the partner of choice to support innovative resource and training initiatives. “This is a partnership equipped to support the needs and aspiration of our customers now and well into the future.” 
Pilot Flight Academy and IAGO Flight Training plan to offer their airline clients and students access to a full suite of training courses on both EASA and UK approvals.
