Skyborne takes a truly integrated approach to your airline pilot training, using our many years of experience to devise the best curriculum for you to learn the necessary skills to become an airline pilot. Training takes place in five phases and the whole course takes approximately 18 months to complete.

Your aircraft flight training will start earlier than in most other flight schools. The ATPL theoretical knowledge training is delivered in two parts, with the initial flight training sandwiched in between. We accept applications year-round with each course having no more than 20 trainees.

We review all online applications and subject to you meeting our entry criteria, you will be invited to complete our initial web based selection process. This is a series of online psychometric, numeracy and aptitude assessments.

We use the AON assessment tool to help determine whether or not you have the core competencies needed to successfully commence the course. The next stage of the selection process will be to attend an online assessment with Skyborne. This includes a series of non-technical activities and an interview. During your training with Skyborne, we help you develop those core skills, knowledge and attitude to become an effective commercial pilot.

Unlike most flight training organisations, we do not charge for selection.
