What Our Students Say About Us

Elliot Lamprecht - Jet2.com

I completed the full ACS fast track course from July 2021-December 2023, including my PPL, night rating, ATPL’s (with Path2Pilot,) CPL, MEIR, and UPRT. Training in Scotland has been a challenging but thoroughly rewarding experience. Coming from London, the mountainous terrain, varied weather, and stunning scenery came as quite a shock. However, I quickly grew to love and appreciate it, and firmly believe that doing your flight training in Scotland will prepare you extremely well for life as an airline pilot. Scotland provides a dynamic flying experience, where every day is a learning day. ACS provided me with an excellent level of instruction throughout the course. I felt that each instructor genuinely cared about each students progress. They have a vast amount of experience, and are passionate about what they do. ACS run their fast track course in a similar way to an integrated course. The difference is that it is more flexible, cost effective, and personable, while still getting you from zero hours to first officer efficiently. Training at ACS is like being part of a small family, where everyone knows each other well, and you leave with a solid group of friends, that you’ll keep in contact with throughout your career. Perth is in a central location, making it easily accessible throughout Scotland. ACS’s fleet is also reliable, and efficiently maintained, with in house maintenance minimising the amount of time that aircraft are out of service. I would highly recommend anyone who is currently looking for somewhere to train, to book a tour or trial flight, meet the staff, and get a feel for ACS.

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.
