With seven first class academies located across France, the UK, Spain, Montenegro, and three in Australia, Airways Aviation today boasts the largest privately-owned group of multidisciplinary aviation academies of its kind having delivered professional education & training to in excess of 8,000 Airline Pilots, 12,000 Cabin Crew, 3,000 Aircraft Maintenance Engineers and 10,000 Ground Handling students.

The Airways Aviation Group currently also owns and operates the largest fleet of Diamond DA40 and DA42 pilot training aircraft in Europe and is also owner of one of the largest Diamond Aircraft training fleets in the world. The Airways Aviation fleet flies in excess of 45,000 hours per annum and anticipates an increase of flying activity of between 12% and 15% over 2020. Airways Aviation are also a certified and approved Part 145 service and maintenance facility and plan a further increase of its fleet by up to 22 new aircraft over the period 2020 - 2023 based on projected demands on its pilot training business.

“The volume of recruitment by the industry for aviation professionals and in particular commercial pilots, is unprecedented.  Therefore, it flows that students graduating after having received their training with us should quite literally have an abundance of employment and career choices available to them internationally. We always aim to train our student pilots at the highest standards and on only the best aircraft. Diamond Aircraft fit that requirement perfectly.” says Romy Hawatt - Founder and Executive Chairman of the Airways Aviation Group.

Liqun Zhang, CEO Diamond Aircraft Austria: ”We are proud of having Airways Aviation Academy in our Diamond Aircraft Family. They are one of the best examples of a high-standard flight school benefitting from the most sophisticated flight training tools on the market today. It perfectly shows that Diamond’s approach to offer the most complete and modern piston training aircraft fleet, ranging from single engine basic to advanced multi-engine trainer aircraft, is one of the major drivers for the success of a flight school. We are looking forward to support the academy with more airplanes in the future.”
