For those wanting to learn to fly, the largest flight academy in Iceland will soon be accepting new students.

Iceland Aviation Academy has become the largest flight academy in Iceland, becoming a market leader in the Nordic region. IAA graduated its largest class ever with 78 students receiving their Airline Transport Pilot Licence (APTL) in June. It was the largest in the history of the academy and the history of Iceland.

Instructors at Iceland Aviation Academy are seen as a precious resource due to their level of expertise and experience flying in Iceland’s notoriously unpredictable weather. They pass that same knowledge onto their students who are given the opportunity to learn to fly in challenging conditions and at some of the most scenic airports in the world.

Arnbjörn Ólafsson, Director of Marketing and International Relations says,,

“In recent years, many international students have made the decision to come to Iceland for their ATPL studies as the conditions here for flight training are rather unique. Iceland has an ‘open sky’ policy which means that there are no restrictions or areas closed off to flight training. Students therefore have an opportunity to take their practical lessons in challenging situations and land at some of the most scenic airports in the world. Our staff is our greatest asset, as our teachers hold a wealth of knowledge and experience.”

Iceland Aviation Academy is centrally located and offers theoretical courses in both the greater Reykjavik area and at the main campus of the aviation academy in Keflavik. Practical lessons take place at Reykjavik Domestic Airport and Keflavik International Airport.

Students from around the world come to Iceland Aviation Academy to learn to fly for many reasons including:

  • Learning from motivated instructors with a depth of knowledge and experience.
  • Gaining the invaluable experience of flying in challenging environmental conditions.
  • Flexible training.
  • Use of a well maintained state-of-the-art fleet of planes.
  • Flying in an environment that is not only challenging but beautiful.
  • Centrally located - Iceland Aviation Academy has locations in both greater Reykjavik and Keflavik.

Iceland Aviation Academy will soon be accepting students for the spring semester. The deadline for applications is January 11.
