Making dreams fly for pilots of the future!
Want to be a pilot? Get started at Atlantic AirVenture!
Do you want to know more about what being a pilot really entails and how to prepare yourself for training? ‘Future Pilots’ is an awesome experience for young people who want to be a pilot aged 14+ who are serious about planning their training and career as an Airline Pilot.
The course is conducted by an Airline Captain with many thousands of hours flight experience with major airlines. The day is organised as a combination of classroom theory and flight exercises in a Boeing 737-800 NG flight simulator.
Each Future Pilot will have the opportunity to test their natural flying abilities in the cockpit – flying a series of maneuvers under the guidance of their airline pilot instructor. This experience will also ingrain the importance of the STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Maths) subjects in aviation.
This is a unique course and great opportunity to get an invaluable insight into the day of a Airline Pilot, discuss commercial flight training options, flight training schools in Ireland and abroad.
We also give parents the opportunity to join in at the end of the day for a Q & A session.
I had the most awesome, unbelievable and marvelous day of my life! It was a day that won’t be forgotten in my life.
This course helped me understand the basics of flight and flying the Boeing 737-800.Flying with a airline captain was an interesting experience because any questions I had regarding airlines and flying were answered.
It definitely motivated me more now and I cant wait until my first introductory flight during the summer.
The memory that stands out about this course is the flight where I was instructed with another boy, It was extremely interesting and I got the feel of flying as a Captain.
That night I dreamed about flying in a real plane and it was GREAT!!
Thanks for this spectacular day that I will never forget
