L3Harris Airline Academy

About us and our
pilot training

At L3Harris, we are a global leader in airline pilot training. Thanks to our experienced instructors and our state-of-the-art facilities in the UK and USA, our graduates are highly sought after by the most prominent airlines across the globe.

You're in good hands

Our pilot training courses are designed to take you from little or no experience and give you the theoretical knowledge and flying hours to start your journey as a Co-Pilot. From there you will work your way up to the job of your dreams; a Captain or pilot.

We can also help if you’re looking to retrain to change your career, or if you are an existing pilot who is hoping to change where you live and work.

We know how important landing your job role is for you. That’s why all our Integrated ATPL, BSc (Hons) Aviation - Pilot Programme and Flexible ATPL students have access to both the L3Harris Training Assurance and Graduate Placement Pool on graduation. Our experienced team of graduate placement consultants will work to place you with an airline giving you the best chance of landing your dream job.

We’re proud to say that thousands of our graduates from all our Academy locations are now flying as Captains and First Officers for major airlines such as Wizz, British Airways and Ryanair.
