Join the Avion family

Avion Group is a Dutch company focusing on Full Flight Simulator design, manufacturing, and operation. The simulators are qualified at the highest level and we have an EASA Approved Training Organization (ATO) and operate Flight Training Centers in Malta and London. This summer, we will open a new center in Athens, Greece.

At Avion, we set up regional Flight Training Centers at our customer’s locations, designed to our customer’s specific needs and requirements. This substantially lowers flight crew training costs by avoiding hotel costs and daily allowances. It also reduces travel risks and improves the crew productivity of an airline. More importantly, we deliver an ultimate training experience that excites even the most seasoned pilots in the world.
