Libyan students achieve full type-rating on A320

Posted 20 June 2014 · 1 Comment

Three Libyan students who recently graduated from Progress Flight Academy have successfully achieved a full type rating on the Airbus A320 at the Airbus Training Centre in Toulouse.

The three young pilots have since been successfully screened by Afriqiyah Airways for their ‘standard and quality of qualifications’ and have now been appointed First Officers. 

Captain Mohyedin Saadawi of Afriqiyah Airways, father of First Officer Munir Saadawi, said that the students achieved an excellent standard on the A320 course thanks to the high quality of training at Progress Flight Academy. 

Other Progress Flight Academy graduates are flying for Libya Airlines as First Officers in the Airbus A320 and the Canadair Regional Jet CRJ 900 having achieved type ratings at Toulouse and the Lufthansa Academy at Bremen. 

A large proportion of private students at Progress Flight Academy are the sons of airline pilots and airline personnel or others connected to the industry. This indicates an appreciation in the industry of the high quality of graduates from the Academy. Every single PFA graduate who trained for a jet type rating at a European Aviation Academy has successfully qualified. 

An increasing number of students from Libya are enrolling at Progress Flight Academy. Before commencing flight training most of them complete six to eight months study at an English Language School to achieve a high ICAO level 5 in English Language proficiency which is necessary to tackle the ATP theory training.
