„Due to this forefront education, I was able to fulfill my life’s dream.” (Andreas Klikovits)

I completed my training at Aviation Academy Austria in 2014 and have been flying the Embraer 195 as a pilot with Austrian Airlines for almost 3 years.

I am very grateful to Aviation Academy Austria for the superb training, as I can put the knowledge and experience I have gained there into practice every day.

Following my completion of the training, I got a job as an airline pilot very quickly and without any problems.

The reason why I decided to join Aviation Academy is very simple:

You are perfectly prepared for your career as a future airline pilot right from the start!

The road to become a pilot: Could it be for you?

For many people, the profession of a pilot is an absolute dream job.

What many miss...
Is that it does not need to remain a dream.

But how does one become a pilot?

At Aviation Academy Austria!

We train YOU as a future pilot for all international airlines.

Why train at Aviation Academy Austria?

It's simple - we live to fly and you'll see that as soon as you join us!

The company was founded in 2004 by a group of young airline pilots, started with the purchase of a Fokker 70/100 Level D full-flight simulator and expanded rapidly. Very soon afterwards, the ATPL Academy was founded at the airfield in Wr. Neustadt East. The goal to train successful airline pilots has remained true since the beginning – transferring the wisdom of professionals to future professionals.

All our flight instructors are either airline pilots or commercial pilots with a very, very large training experience. Due to our clear commitment to professional training, we provide the basic training solely with glass cockpit aircraft paired with the strict training guidelines of airlines.

Our focus is on flying as a profession. In short: "Aviation Academy Austria represents professional, personal and high-quality training."

Can I do the training on a part-time basis?

We offer our training as intensive courses and partly weekend courses.

What are the career opportunities as a pilot?

The demand for commercial and airline pilots is highly dependent on the economic situation and can therefore fluctuate greatly. However, forecasts by aircraft manufacturers and airlines indicate a strong expansion of worldwide air traffic and therefore a worldwide demand for pilots is necessary in the long term.
