Welcome new GlobeAir Pilot Training Partnership with Ireland-based international flight school Atlantic Flight Training Academy. The goal is obvious - to train cadets for their future careers as commercial pilots in 2023/2024.The candidates involved in the pilot training programme as part of the partnership between GlobeAir and AFTA will receive 18 months of extensive training in Cork and Waterford airports in Ireland. By partnering with AFTA, GlobeAir candidates will be selected and monitored by the school from day one; cadets will embark upon a unique route of training which takes them directly to the role of First Officer on board a C510 Mustang aircraft flying routes across Europe for GlobeAir.

Bernhard Fragner, GlobeAir CEO, commented: “GlobeAir continues to identify innovative partnerships to help us stay at the forefront in the private aviation sector. We have carefully selected AFTA as our pilot training partner due to their high standards and commitment to excellence. By working with them, we hope to provide a path for a new generation of aviation enthusiasts to join the GlobeAir #DreamTeam” 

New pilot training partnership between GlobeAir and AFTA will see successful student cadets fly AFTA’s next-generation G 1000 NXI Glass cockpit Cessna 172’s for the initial phase of the flight training, followed by the Diamond DA42 NG, B737 NG and 737-8200 simulators for the advanced phases.

 Managing Director at AFTA, Mark Casey, said: “We are proud to have been selected by GlobeAir to train cadets for their future careers as commercial pilots in 2023/2024. Our new partnership with GlobeAir is testament to AFTA’s successful record of helping leading global airlines to train their pilots to the highest possible EASA standards in a training environment designed to challenge and enhance their cadets flying skills. AFTA will celebrate 28 years training commercial pilots in their careers next year and we look forward to the next 28 years expanding the business on the world stage.”
