Taking the integrated route is more expensive but you do everything with one training organisation

Skyborne Airline Academy launched at Gloucester Airport in 2018 with brand new, state-of-the-art facilities. In April 2019 it launched its inaugural EASA Integrated ARPL course and Pilot interviewed one of the cadets on the programme, Alisha Jassar.

What inspired you to go flying and what drew you into commercial flight training?

I have been passionate about aviation for as long as I can remember. When I was growing up, I used to really enjoy watching the various light aircraft that would fly over our house. I can remember wanting to experience this for myself and those memories have stayed with me ever since, particularly during flights for family holidays.

When I was sixteen I had a trial flight at Sibson Aerodrome in Peterborough, and I immediately knew that I wanted to embark on a career as an airline pilot, so I began researching training options and institutions.

How did you select your ATO(s)?

When I first encountered Skyborne Airline Academy I was immediately impressed and found its values really refreshing. The commitment to delivering excellence in every department, including its brand-new facility at Gloucestershire Airport and innovative training methods, made Skyborne stand out for me compared to other schools.
