Eduardo

EDUARD – AIRLINE PILOT IN AIRBUS A320

“Professionalism and commitment so students can fulfill their dream”

I had always wanted to be a pilot, it was something vocational. Why Aero Link? At that time there were only two flight schools for the training of Airline Transport Pilot: TOP FLY and AERO LINK. This school truly cared of my education. I would definitely recommend them !

Estela

ESTELA - AIRLINE PILOT IN AIRBUS A330

“I choose Aero Link and today I am sure this was the best choice I have ever made !”

As a student I really enjoyed the training, largely thanks to high quality instructor training that I had. During my time as a student and later as a Flight Instructor, I have had many experiences that I wouldn’t change this for anything, I could develop my career as a pilot through continued training and apprenticeship from my colleagues, students and all I lived in Aero Link.

Arnau

ARNAU – AIRLINE PILOT IN AIRBUS A330-A350

“I recommend Aero Link without any doubt, is the safest option”

I and my classmates are an example of how a dream can come true and Aero Link has been part of this reality. Their airline agreements helped me in my job placement. Because of their instructors, fleet and maintenance facilities, but above all, because of their great human qualities, I would definitely repeat my training at this flight school.
