What our Graduates say

“I believe that nowadays it is of extreme importance that pilots are trained in aircraft fitted with glass cockpit displays, i.e. the Garmin G1000 system installed in ACS fleet of Twinstars. The technology behind it and the presentation of information is almost identical to what you would find in a commercial airliner. I had never flown an aircraft this technologically advanced before, so I thoroughly enjoyed flying ACS DA42s!” 


A lot of reviews you will read on flight school websites can almost seem the same as I am sure you will have read many by this point. However I can give my full personal endorsement to what Graeme and his team have built at ACS. I completed my hour building, MEP, ME/IR and CPL with ACS all in minimum hours and with first time passes.  This was mainly down to the dedication and depth of knowledge of the instructors and staff.  It’s not only a school which will do anything they can to make sure you are looked after from start to finish but one which will go the extra mile to ensure their students have the best possible environment to learn in. No need to read any other flight school websites you’ve found where you need to complete training already, I hope you have as good a time as I did.
Completed my hour building, MEIR and CPL with ACS Aviation at Perth, Scotland throughout 2018. From start to finish the Directors, Head of Training and instructors were extremely friendly and approachable. The instruction I received throughout my MEIR and CPL was second to none and put me In a great position to start my professional flying career. Whether it’s hour building up the Scottish west coast visiting Broadford on the Isle of Skye & Plockton in Lochalsh, flying in turbulent Scottish weather under the hood in the DA42, or planning and flying routes through challenging weather and mountainous terrain on the CPL, flying with ACS from Perth really does set you up well and I’d recommend them to all.

I have recently completed training at ACS for a Multi Engine Instrument Rating and Commercial Pilot License. The quality of training was second to none and my instructors were outstanding, with decades of experience. There has been a great deal of investment in the school in recent times with the addition of a modern Diamond DA42 aircraft and state of the art Alsim42 flight simulator with g1000 ‘glass cockpit’. This, together with an efficient operations department, fantastic training environment and friendly atmosphere make ACS and excellent choice and I’m extremely glad I chose them for my commercial flight training.
