Iceland Aviation Academy the largest flight school in Iceland

Keilir Aviation Academy and Icelandic Flight School have now merged under the name Iceland Aviation Academy.

The school is now one of the market leading flight schools in the Nordic region, with experienced staff, an inspiring flying environment and state-of-the-art aircraft.

Theoretical courses are taught both in the greater Reykjavik area and at our main campus in Keflavík, and students have the opportunity to take practical lessons both from Reykjavik Domestic Airport as well as from Keflavik International Airport.

The school held the largest graduation of ATPL students in Iceland’s history on June 12th this year were 78 students received their diplomas.

“In recent years many international students have made the decision to come to Iceland for their ATPL studies, as the conditions here for flight training are rather unique. Iceland has an “open-sky” policy which means that there are no restrictions or areas closed off to flight training. Students therefore have an opportunity to take their practical lessons in challenging situation and land on some of the most scenic airports in the world. Our staff is our greatest asset, as our teachers hold a wealth of knowledge and experience” says Arnbjörn Ólafsson, Director of Marketing and International Relations.

One class has already been filled for the coming fall semester and the school is now taking applications for a second one. Application deadline is on August 15th and courses start on August 31st.
