Keilir Aviation Academy is a part of Keilir Group, which was formed after the US Navy left Keflavik NAS in 2006. The Aviation Academy is a part of the Transportation and Security Division and offers training for aviation professionals in a wide variety of studies.

The pilot curriculum is based on JAR-FCL and approved by the Icelandic CAA, which is a full member of the JAA and conforming to the standards set by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Courses being offered are PPL(A), but in March 2009 CPL, IR and ATPL courses started. Keilir - Atlantic Center of Excellence has set ambitious goals and will only use state of the art equipment including Diamond DA-20, DA-40 and DA-42 aircraft, which are purchased brand new from the manufacturer.

The Cabin Crew curriculum has been developed with JAR-OPS and EU-OPS as a reference, but also with participation from the Icelandic Flag Carrier - Icelandair. This will serve the purpose of adapting the training curriculum to the airlines requirements, thus reducing the amount of time needed for airline specific training.

The Aircraft Mechanic Training is a breakthrough in Mechanics training in Iceland, as this training has not been offered for decades. The curriculum is developed according to JAA Part-147 and is prepared in close cooperation with Icelandair Technical Services.

Air Traffic Controller Basic Course started January 2009. This course is prepared in accordance with Guidance and Regulations from Eurocontrol on ATCO Common Core Content Initial Training. This training will include Aerodrome Control Instrument Rating with TWR Endorsement (according to syllabus ADI/TWR). The training includes synthetic training in a TWR simulator. Further studies are being prepared including Academic Studies on the Aviation Level.
