ACS growth plans get airborne following £1m investment
ACS Aviation, Scotland’s leading flying school and aircraft maintenance company has set a course to become one of the leading commercial flying schools in Europe following a £1 million investment in aircraft, airside facilities and online presence.
Founded in 2007 the company has increased the number of would-be pilots for its wide range of commercial training programmes after extending the range and flexibility of its training offer. Allowing flying students, a “modular approach” ACS Flight Training courses enable trainees to fit instruction and flying hours around work commitments. The range of competitively-priced courses has enabled ACS Flight Training to compete with large multinational training schools such as Oxford Aviation Academy and L3 Airline Company based in England.
Recent enrolments include would-be pilots from as far afield as the Netherlands and Italy, as well as those generated by ACS’s marketing operations around the UK.
ACS is based at Perth Airport, the former WWII airfield owned by Morris Leslie Group and earmarked as a potential site for further development in the projected UK and Scottish Government-backed Tay Cities Deal. Potential upgrading of the airfield and its surrounding facilities under the plan would enable ACS to boost its offer compete better with European and UK rivals, bringing substantial business and tourism benefits to the Tayside economy. Future development, including improved retail and accommodation facilities and housing would also improve the business case for ACS to expanding the widely-praised apprenticeship programme it offers in its expanding aircraft maintenance division.
