Cambridge Airport selected for new UK professional flight training centre
Pilot Training College (PTC) has selected Cambridge Airport as the location for its new professional flight training academy, Pilot Training College (Cambridge), pending CAA approval, which is expected by Autumn this year.
The new partnership enables Pilot Training College to establish a noteworthy presence in the UK in addition to its existing Training Centres in Ireland at Waterford and Dublin, and in Florida, USA. PTC trains up to 300 pilots per year and has contracts with leading airlines from around the world such as Flybe, Nasair, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines and Air Astana. Initially PTC will be basing a new Boeing 737 simulator, an FNPTII procedures trainer and a fleet of Piper Seminole aircraft at Cambridge Airport.
