EASA Examination Centre
Aerodynamics Academy is an official EASA examination centre. It is thanks to this that our students can complete their training and sit for their exams in our own premises, without having the need to commute.
In-house maintenance equipment
We own our maintenance equipment, which has been certified according to EASA PARTS 145 and 147, CAMO and CAMO PLUS. This means that our fleet is maintained in optimal conditions 24/7, and therefore that we are permanently ready to operate from Mondays to Sundays under high-performance standards.
The approval of part 145 of EASA is a certification at enterprise level that subscribes to the European Commission regulation standards in design, production, maintenance, and operations, regarding aircraft components.
Malaga has an average of 300 days of annual sunshine that warrant optimal weather conditions for flight training year-round. This allows us to expedite the course’s practical part, ensuring that our students complete the Integrated ATPL within the desired term.
Aerodynamics Academy has been certified by AESA (Spanish Aviation Safety Agency) under the centre number E-ATO226, and it is compliant with EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) regulations, which allows us to work through virtually all countries of Europe.
Over our 25 years of experience, Aerodynamics Academy has become a company of international prestige and a reference to both national and international airlines that choose us to train their pilots, mechanics, and crew members.
Within this period, we have also trained thousands of pilots that are currently active not only in Europe, but around the world.
