„Thanks to the top training, I was able to fulfill my life’s dream.” (Andreas Klikovits)

I completed my training at Aviation Academy Austria and have been flying the Embraer 195 as a pilot with Austrian Airlines.

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!

Airline pilot - make your dream a dream job

We see our students as future colleagues. That's why we have a clear goal right from the start: to train you to become a responsible airline pilot in just two years!

At Aviation Academy Austria you will not only learn to fly. We are determined to equip you with all the skills you need for a successful career in the cockpit and thus offer you an incomparable learning experience. Teamwork, responsibility and airmanship are just some of the important points we emphasize.

We encourage and challenge in equal measure. With us you can expect a goal-oriented, action-packed and unforgettable study time.



Why you should come to AAA

Apart from the highest quality standards and professionalism, which is the base for us, our training goes far beyond the official minimum requirements.

We want to prepare you intensively for a successful pilot career and pave your way into the cockpit of a commercial aircraft.

Variety instead of boring standards

One thing we want you to do right from the start: Broaden your horizons. And we provide you with the best possible support in doing so. For this reason, we do not impose any restrictions on the choice of training airfields. You may and should get to know as many different airfields as possible.

"Ciao" and cappuccino in Venice? A delicious fish platter in Croatia and back?

Experience unforgettable moments during your solo flights! Our airfield LOAN is ideally located. You can reach mountains, the sea as well as the Hungarian lowland Puszta within shortest time.

Flying means freedom. And we live it every day. 

Turn our extra to your advantage

What does that mean?

We do not focus on minimum requirements, but train perfectly trained pilots. For example, our students complete their MCC (Multicrew Coordination Course), in which they learn essential communication basics and work processes in a multicrew cockpit, in the simulator of a large commercial aircraft. Airline feeling is guaranteed!

Our own simulator center reinforces our commitment to building strong relationships with international aviation companies. Of course, this also benefits our students enormously by giving them fantastic opportunities to pursue their pilot careers with international airlines.

Throughout the training, of course, fun should not be neglected. Quite the opposite. We live and love aviation every day and share your passion! Excursions, team-building events, a mentoring program or even just a simple coffee chat between aviation enthusiasts are part of our daily routine.



Step by step to your pilot training


  • Minimum age 18 years
  • very good knowledge of English
  • free criminal record

The decision about a flight school influences your further path to becoming a professional pilot. That's why we recommend you to look at several flight schools and choose the right one for you personally.
