Aviation Academy Austria

Aviation Academy Austria (AAA) is a provider of professional pilot training for air operators and private individuals. The business is focused on vocational training only, from the first flight of a student pilot in a single-engine aircraft to type ratings for airline and business pilots on modern full flight simulators.

The company was founded in 2004 by a group of young pilots and started with the purchase of the first Level D full flight simulator. The participation of the regional investor Athena Burgenland put the company on a financially stable basis. In the following years, further simulators were purchased and the building was extended to six simulator spaces. The training centre is located in Neusiedl am See and operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Currently the company runs 5 full-flight simulators and various other training devices, like cockpit procedure trainers and fixed base simulators. The ATPL Academy has access to a fleet of almost 20 training aircraft and a capacity of 50 graduates per year.
