What Our Students Say About Us

Ben Colman - Ryanair

I completed my CPL ME/IR and Night Rating with ACS, finishing in January 2020 with first time passes. The combination of DA42 aircraft and the AL42 simulator made for a seamless transmission between the aircraft and simulator sessions during the instrument rating course, with aircraft availability never an issue due to the onsite maintenance facilities. The standard of instruction was incredibly high and I felt constantly pushed to achieve my potential from day one. The instructors depth of knowledge combined with well structured courses really contributed to my development throughout the training. Choosing the right flight school is an important decision, and ACS more than delivered with the professional set up and friendly atmosphere they have created at Perth airport. I really enjoyed my time at ACS, and flying over this spectacular part of the country was a great experience.

ACS Flight Training have been a well-kept secret in the aviation industry, I feel like that may well change in the future as modular has seen a rise recently. My advice would be to get onboard with ACS Flight Training before everyone else figures out how good they are. The training at ACS without a doubt set me up with everything I needed going forwards and I came away having learnt so much from the courses – it’s exactly what a flight school should be like, so thanks for everything!

Here are some things for you to consider to help you make the right choices in achieving your aviation ambitions.

Visit some schools

A good first start is to visit some schools, talk to the staff and instructors, ask lots of questions and get a tour of the facilities and aircraft. This will give you a good idea of the options available to you and will help decide if the environment is right for you.

Seek advice

Those currently learning or qualified pilots are also a good source of advice. Most schools should be more than happy for you to talk to some of their members and students. From this you will likely gain some valuable impressions as well as answering questions you may have about the process and what to expect.

Take a trial lesson

Before committing any significant time and money to flying, a sensible option when you are researching schools is to take a trial lesson to make sure flying really is for you.

Check out the Facebook and Google reviews online

Most flight schools are reviewed and rated online and on social media. Check out the student feedback and reviews online for the latest infomratiion and pricing. 


Prior to starting training for any pilot’s licence it is worth considering the medical standards required, please see the CAA Medical page for more information.
