ACS Aviation enter negotiations to add electric aircraft

ACS Aviation are looking to become one of the first UK pilot training schools to place an order for all-electric powered training aircraft.

Producing zero CO2 emissions and using clean, renewable energy; the all electric planes will be added in adddition to ACS Aviation's ever-growing fleet. We estimate these aircraft will eliminate 8 million metric tons of CO2 generated every year during airline pilot training worldwide.

We are radically redefining every aspect of airline pilot training and that includes incorporating all-electric aircraft into our fleet as we invest in the latest technology for our trainees and staff. These are great for the environment, economical to operate and have the right blend of avionic technology and handling characteristics required to train our future airline pilots. A significant reduction in global carbon emissions is the goal for most socially responsible organisations in our industry, and with the help of the manufacturer we aim to lead the way in the UK. It’s vital for the next generation that we invest in measures to make flying more sustainable. Electric is the future of aviation.

Working with Local Charities

Thank you to everyone that attended the Perth Airport Festival of Flight in April 2022. We raised over £1400 for Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance.

SCAA who respond, on average, to one time-critical emergency call out every single day. SCAA are a national charity and receive no statutory government funding, so rely 100% on donations from the public to fuel our life-saving flights.

INVESTMENT IN THE COMMUNITY

ACS Aviation participates in various trade, business and industry associations to contribute to the growth and governance of the aviation industry. We also make donations to various non-profit organisations for humanitarian and charitable purposes. We do not provide any donations of a political nature.
