  • “The APS MCC at Skyborne is a very demanding, but rewarding course. Over the last three weeks I’ve gained all the necessary skills needed as a commercial airline pilot, putting into practice typical real world scenarios in the UK’s first B737 MAX simulator. I cannot thank the instructors enough, the programme is very well-structured and they are always on hand to help wherever possible to ensure you get the most out of the course. Thank you Skyborne for everything you’ve done and I look forward to sharing my success with you.”

  • “As an RAF fighter pilot, the short time to complete the Military Conversion Course was a challenge, but thanks to Skyborne’s professional approach, impressive facilities and positive learning environment, I was able to pass first time. As Skyborne is expanding, I foresee this airline academy going from strength to strength. I would highly recommend Skyborne to any colleague looking to make the step from military to civilian aviation.”
