We believe that a quality education provides a solid platform for any career. In aviation, however, it is non negotiable. Our programmes provide candidates with the tools they need to operate at the forefront of the industry with confidence. HAIL has proudly partnered with Henley Air Flight School and Blue Chip Flight School, and now offers both helicopter and fixed-wing versions of our programmes through these premier partners - you simply won’t find a higher standard of training anywhere.
