Pilot Training

A course is the study of a particular topic within a wider subject area and is the foundation of a qualification. A typical course includes lectures, assessments and tutorials.

Pilot training is a challenging, yet incredibly rewarding process of becoming a successful pilot. The aviation industry continues to grow rapidly, meaning there is a large demand for pilots with this extensive training. Those who have completed pilot training and have acquired a license will have a variety of jobs to choose from.

Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state and a member state of the European Union. It is located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. Spanish universities regulate access to their own degrees and they fix the academic fees. They can also offer unofficial postgraduate degrees. The capital city Madrid has possibly the largest number of bars per capita of any European city and a very active nightlife.
