Pilot Programs

Iceland Aviation Academy offers ambitious flight training in one of the market leading flight schools in the Nordic region. Our programs are open to Icelandic as well as foreign student pilots. The courses are based on a pan-European curriculum for the issuance of flight licenses issued by EASA - the European Aviation Safety Agency and are therefore taught according to EASA Part-FCL standards. The programs are approved by the Icelandic Transport Authority and are supervised by them.

Private Pilot Program

Private pilot training is primarily intended for those who want to practice sport flying, for the enjoyment of themselves and others. Upon completion of your studies, you will obtain a pan-European Private Pilot License (Part-FCL) which entitles you to fly a single-engine airplane in a passenger flight with passengers free of charge around the world. Private pilot training is both fun and challenging, which is divided into theoretical and practical training.

Airline Transport Pilot Programs

Airline Transport Pilot training is an exciting course for those who want to acquire the right to operate passenger aircraft anywhere in the world. Those who complete their commercial pilot training at the Icelandic Aviation Academy acquire all the rights that airlines require when hiring pilots on modern passenger jets.

There are two options for commercial aviation training, modular commercial aviation training or integrated commercial aviation training. Both methods give the same rights at the end of the study, but various additions, emphases and length of study separate the programs. For example, integrated studies (organized studies) are conducted entirely at the same school, which means that the school can graduate a student with much less flight time (150 hours), than in the modular program. The modular program, on the other hand, is based on increased time (200 hours) and is based on different courses that are taken separately. In addition, the school offers individual courses in practical training that are offered under integrated training, as well as conversion.

Flight Instructor Certificate

The Flight Instructor Certificate is a good way to gain more experience after you have completed the commercial pilot training, and it gives you the opportunity to improve skills that are in demand by airlines, e.g. cooperation of two pilots, identify hazards and intervene when necessary and guide another pilot in the right direction.
