Flight Dynamics Instructor

Our client's training school was established in 1943 and shapes talented pilots, engineers, and aircrew into flight test professionals who deliver powerful strategic advantage and real commercial value. Modern flight test programmes are complex and expensive endeavours, requiring a high level of knowledge, skill and hard work in order to get the maximum capability for defence from their air systems. Realising this potential while ensuring our aircraft remain safe to operate requires trained specialists with expertise in a broad range of theoretical, practical and analytical disciplines.

What To Expect

Modular, Cost and Time Effective Courses
Delivered by expert tutors at our state-of-the-art training facilities, our enhanced modular courses cover experimental, development and systems flight test. We can design bespoke programmes to meet specific requirements, run refresher courses in key subjects, provide tailored training for specialist tasks, or conduct conversions to upgrade existing qualifications (for example Cat 2 to Cat

Unique Learning Management System
Our new, bespoke digital learning management system (LMS) is the only one of its kind among leading flight test schools. It provides advanced, specialist tools for interactive digital and face-to-face teaching, and supports collaborative learning. Accessible from anywhere in the world on almost any conceivable system, the LMS enables teaching at a time and place convenient to our students.

State-Of-The-Art Fixed Wing and Rotary Aircraft
Our aircraft have all been modified to create 'flying classrooms' which meet both military and civil requirements. Their innovative glass cockpits have built-in flight test instrumentation suites to provide live flight data and enable realistic training scenarios. These enable training in specialist test techniques, such as air-to-ground radar testing, and the replication of entire sorties in the classroom for debrief and further study.
