Pilot Training

Welcome to the VATSIM UK’s Pilot Training Department.

Who said learning can’t be fun! Here at the Pilot Training Department in VATSIM UK we believe that the key to enjoying the network to its full potential is Pilot Training. Pilot Training offers you the opportunity to learn and understand the simple and more complex elements of flying allowing you to really test those controllers!

The United Kingdom Division is a well respected Authorised Training Organization providing some of the highest standards of training. Our mentors and examiners excel in training students to a high standard which allows us the maintain and improve our 89% pass rate over more than 300 exams.

Our training packs contain everything you will need for each rating, so there is no need to go searching for the answers, we provided everything.
