Skywest Aviation began in 1990 as a registered flight training facility, providing a professional quality service to clients whilst operating in strict accordance with the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) standards. We have three bases; Weston Airport Dublin, Cork Airport and Newcastle Airport Co. Wicklow.
Training pilots since the company’s formation we have developed into Skywest Aviation, the only helicopter Authorized Training Organization (ATO) in Ireland and fully EASA compliant.
With an established reputation for training pilots with accuracy, airmanship and quality we currently offer courses for Private Pilots, Commercial Pilots, Flight Instructors and the issue or renewal of Type Ratings.
We can take you from your very first experiences in a helicopter, all the way to flying for a career and teaching others; all courses are defined by the European Joint Aviation Authority Regulations. On issue of a licence or rating it is applicable within any of the JAA states and is highly respected by other licence issuing authorities due to the rigorous training and testing of candidates.
