Alsim is pleased to announce the delivery of an AL42 simulator to Skyborne, the UK’s newest and most innovative airline training academy, based at Gloucestershire Airport.

Set to meet the ever-increasing demands of the aviation industry with innovative, airline-focused training, Skyborne is the brainchild of three leading figures in aviation training; Tom Misner (Chairman), Lee Woodward, (CEO) and Ian Cooper (COO).

The founders’ extensive experience in commercial aviation, education and training sees Skyborne adopting a fresh approach to pilot training with a focus on quality and individual aptitude. The company has selected the Alsim AL42 Simulator to ensure that only the highest standard of teaching, safety and relevant airline-style training is offered.

Ian Cooper, Skyborne COO, says: “We are delighted to be offering our cadets the opportunity to learn to fly using the very latest in simulator technology. Alsim’s AL42 Simulator has an extensive database that reproduces different scenarios and flying conditions, exposing the cadet to real-life situations, vital for developing the quick decision-making skills needed in the cockpit.
“It is also an exact replica of the DA42, which makes the transition to the Diamond, the aircraft we train in, a much more seamless experience.”


Skyborne Airline Academy is a modern airline training academy based at Gloucestershire Airport in the United Kingdom, newly established by industry experts, bringing a fresh approach to airline pilot training.
The Academy offers full-time frozen Airline Transport Pilot License (fATPL) training. All training is conducted from its state-of-the-art facility at Gloucestershire Airport, complete with the UK’s first Boeing 737 Max FTD1 flight simulator. Trainees will also spend training periods at California Aeronautical University (CAU) and Florida Institute of Technology (FIT). 

Founders Tom Misner (chairman), Lee Woodward (CEO) and Ian Cooper (COO) have unsurpassed experience in commercial aviation, education and training. It is their vision to create a training environment where the highest standard of teaching, safety and relevant airline-style training is maintained and interactive instruction encouraged. 

Using a combination of tried and tested methods and the latest technology to assess competence, suitability, aptitude and resilience, Skyborne aims to recruit the very best candidates to minimise additional training, reduce failure rates and provide airlines with better pilots and cabin crew.
Skyborne wants to partner with leading international airlines to offer the best possible career opportunities for its graduates.
