The Martinair Flight Academy originated 40 years ago and is part of the AIR FRANCE / KLM Group. The academy is the oldest in the Netherlands that runs all practical flight instruction from a Dutch aerodrome. Therefore we use a modern and young fleet that has its home base at Lelystad Airport.
This intensive integrated training course takes about 24 months and starts 3 times per year. The theory is given by using a Computer Based Training system and is fully integrated with the practical flying lessons. This means that the theory is alternating with practical flying lessons, hereby the theory can be applied directly into practice.
Monthly there is an orientation day at the flight academy, here you get all the information you need and to explore and understand the Martinair Flight Academy. The selection can start any time and can be completed in approximately 3 weeks.
Martinair Flight Academy is very proud of the modern fleet, four TB10 Tobago GT’s. These fully equipped four-seaters have a spacious cabin that provides excellent ergonomics and comfort. As a basic trainer for students and instructors it’s a pleasure to fly!
The TB20 GT Trinidad, fully IFR equipped, includes autopilot/flight director, GPS, stormscope and not to forget, like the TB10, the spacious cockpit making the TB20 one of the best equipped single engine training aircraft in the Netherlands.
Obtaining the Diamond DA42NG and replacing the Piper Seminole PA-44 is part of the latest training development at the Martinair Flight Academy. The DA42NG is the twin engine, ‘glass cockpit’ training aircraft used for the final actual flight training part of the ATPL program.
Flying training increasingly consists out of synthetic flight training. Martinair Flight Academy did choose the “state of the art” FNPT 2 procedure trainer, popularly known as simulator.
