Founded in 2015
Andorra Aviation Academy is located in Principality of Andorra. Inspired by a group of aviation enthusiasts, the agreement to set up this unique aviation degree program with the Andorran Government and University of Andorra was signed in June 2015.
Andorra Aviation Academy offers a pilot training program (18 months Fast Track course) and a 3 years Bachelor of Aviation degree course recognised in the whole of Europe and in 47 states in total (180 ECTS European Credits Transfer System according to Bologna process).
- Pilot training programs
- Approved by EASA
- Taught in English language
Andorra Aviation Academy and its partners offer pilot training courses approved by EASA EASA ATO.0033.
The Academy provides a professional university and flight-training environment that promote the best-in-class airline standards in terms of safety, quality, standardisation, and performance. In addition, it develops managerial skills to consolidate critical-thinking, decision-making in complex environments, leadership and communication. Based on latest university research in pilot and complex environment training, we have developed a teaching method called “mindful training” to allow students to cope with complex and unexpected situations and promote “mind mapping” in students. Pilot training is by its very nature, expensive. To lower the cost of training while keeping high standards, we have set up agreements with which are ‘general aviation’ friendly partners in Europe. France south west particularly does not suffer from the same inclement weather often present in other locations. All these advantages contribute to faster completion times, to standardise the quality of training based on European EASA requirements.
We provide an all-inclusive program (no hidden costs) that is tailored to the specific needs of each student. The head of training directly contacts parents upon completion of each phase.
The Principality of Andorra is a small independent state located in the Pyrenees, in Southern Europe, between France and Spain. In the middle of the Pyrenean mountains, the country enjoys more than 300 sunny days per year due to the Mediterranean influence on the climate.

Throughout our training, we have airlines requirements oriented to allow our students to gain legal, safe and operational behaviours.
We have established an agreement with SunExpress an airline (Headquarters in Frankfurt) that is a joint venture between Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines, two of the most important world airlines for our student recruitment and selection, according to their needs after their Pilot’s License or their Bachelor of Aviation and Pilot. The fleet include 66 B737NG and 6 A330 200, in constant expansion, www.sunexpress.com
