Obtaining your Jump Pilot Authorisation is a great way to improve your Aviation skills putting you in good stead for the higher demands of operating complex aircraft.

Apart from the fun-filled environment you will experience during the course, your knowledge of aircraft management, handling and coordinating skills will improve substantially. Your confidence will increase and you'll have greater ability to navigate through complex situations.

The role of a jump pilot is not only challenging, itโ€™s rewarding.

We will assist you in putting these components into practice, whilst making command decisions in complex flying situations.
