Diarmuid O’Riordan, ASG’s founder stated: “We’re excited to announce our partnership with Skymates Flight Academy and our continued expansion in to the US Pilot training market. Established in 1996, Skymates is one of the most prestigious flight training academies in the US having successfully trained over 3000 Pilots at their purpose built facility in Grand Prairie (Texas) with a fleet of over 25 aircraft. We’re looking forward to working with the team at Skymates and we’re delighted to be able to make ASG’s high quality ATPL theory training available to their students at exclusive rates. Uniquely, with our hybrid classroom concept, Skymates’ students in the US will be able to login and attend our EASA Approved theory classes without ever having to travel to Europe. We have invested in 4K webcams, RØDE broadcast quality microphones, a dedicated instructor login station, and a classroom facing flat-screen display where the faces of those attending remotely will even be displayed to the students who are attending physically so that each student, whether attending physically or remotely, feels part of our classroom”.
ASG is an Approved Training Organisation of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) permitted to deliver training for the award of an Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL). Since its foundation in 2015, ASG’s approach to ATPL training has been characterised by providing students with a bespoke, high quality, and personalised training experience. The training philosophy is to provide premium quality instruction which will benefit prospective airline pilots throughout their career in aviation, from job interview to operations as an Airline Pilot, and not simply to pass the theoretical knowledge examinations.
Class sizes are limited to ensure the optimum learning environment. The ASG team supports students throughout their ATPL training journey and deliver the highest standards of theoretical knowledge instruction. The team of 25+ instructors are operational in the aviation industry and include: current airline pilots, type rating instructors, aircraft and avionics technicians, human factors specialists, military pilot instructors, aeronautical engineers, and air traffic controllers. Our professional team truly differentiates ASG from other training providers; each instructor is chosen for their subject matter expertise and practical industry experience—invaluable resources to the student experience and helps to bring the ATPL subjects to life.
