New staff and updated procedures for Training Academy bookings.


We are delighted to announce that our Training Academy has recruited two new instructors: Dave Baggs UKV1283 and Iain Fleming UKV1549. They join Darren Klenk and Peter Faase, our Training Director, to form a team which is now up to strength and has a wealth of both flight sim and real world aviation experience and expertise.  The TA team are also working on a new and updated suite of training courses and documentation, which will be phased in this year.


The Training Academy provides three services:


·         ‘Self help’ documents covering a wide range of subjects.

·         Training courses aiming to help our members get the best out of our hobby and also covering a wide range subjects. In line with our company ethos, these courses are delivered in a ‘fun and friendly’ manner and receive much positive feedback.  They are delivered as a 1-2-1 session with each course typically taking 1 hour.

·         Formal assessments for the VATSIM P1 and P2 ratings.


Full details can be found here: https://flyuk.aero/en/index.php?page=new_training_acad. All member are encouraged to look at what the TA offers.  If you are considering booking a training course, please read the ‘Important Training Academy Information’ popup first.


As with all our Staff, the TA team are volunteers.  To help make the best use of their time, as well as yours, we are introducing 2 changes:


·         A minimum hours requirement for some courses

·         A revised policy for training course ‘no shows’


Full details are given at NOTAM MIKE here https://flyuk.aero/en/index.php?page=notam&id=289  which will remain in force until the relevant webpages are amended.
