Green Flight Academy Joins the Airline Pilot Club: Championing Sustainable Aviation for the Next Generation
25th October 2023, Dublin, Ireland – The Airline Pilot Club (APC) proudly announces its newest member, Green Flight Academy (GFA). This partnership underscores both organisations' mutual commitment to advancing sustainable aviation in the industry.
"At Green Flight Academy, we want to be the world leader and innovators in sustainable flight training" states Operations Manager, Cecilia Holmlund from GFA. "Our unique training curriculum emphasises not just the latest in green technology, including electric aeroplanes and new, fuel-efficient diesel aeroplanes, but also imparts a green mindset. By training with us, students don't just become pilots; they become ambassadors for sustainable aviation."
The addition of GFA to APC heralds a new era of aviation training, one that prioritises the environment, the economy, and the essential role of pilots in the journey toward sustainable aviation. The pilot's role extends beyond mere flying—they become a cornerstone of the airline's sustainability work. The right culture is instrumental for a safe and commercially viable transition to a greener aviation industry. GFA ensures that its graduates are not only highly skilled but are also deeply committed to the principles of green aviation.
Benefits of the Partnership:
- For APC Members: This partnership offers prospective pilots an opportunity to be trained in cutting-edge green technologies and methodologies, preparing them for a future where sustainable aviation will be at the forefront. The younger generation, which is deeply concerned about the environment, can now align their career aspirations with their values.
- For Flight Training Schools: GFA's inclusion can serve as a beacon, highlighting the tangible benefits and imperatives of integrating sustainability into their curriculum. Other flight schools can look to GFA as a model for how to marry top-tier flight instruction with eco-conscious practices.
- For Airline Partners of APC: Airlines stand to benefit immensely as they will have access to a pool of pilots trained in the latest sustainable aviation practices. These pilots, with their green mindset, can play an instrumental role in helping airlines achieve their sustainability goals, ensuring a smoother, more informed transition towards green practices.
This collaboration between APC and GFA is not just a step, but a leap towards a sustainable future in aviation. As the industry stands at the crossroads of innovation and responsibility, such partnerships will pave the way for a brighter, greener tomorrow.
