My training at Skies Aviation Academy has been the best experience for me so far! Professionalism is not a word in Skies Aviation Academy but a law, the training I´ve got raises up to the highest standards and the staff beyond this level.From the second I arrived in Greece I was helped to settle in to the area during my training also every single thing that had to be solved has been taken care of by the staff of Skies Aviation Academy.

I had the great luck to complete my professional training at Skies Aviation Academy. Not only I was trained by the highest training standards, I was given the chance to finish everything in minimum time and minimum hours. My interaction with the people of Skies Aviation Academy has been an amazing experience. Sakis

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone at Skies for making my time there really enjoyable. I recommend anybody who is thinking about revalidating or renewing their license to go ahead and do it with Skies Aviation Academy !! Skies offered the best price and the course was finished on time without any delays. Skies took care of all my transportation and accommodation needs while in Greece, making it very easy for me. Very friendly staff/instructors/examiner and of course flying in Greece is as spectacular as always with such beautiful scenery. Keep up the good work guys! Richard

Doing my training at Skies Aviation Academy in Thessaloniki has been a very good choice. The school provides a good Infrastructure, staff are very friendly and professional and were always helpful in every situation. I was able to complete my training in the time I had planned and learned a lot from my Instructors. In addition, having Thessaloniki Intl. Airport as the home base certainly is of benefit as you have to operate in a professional environment from the first flight on. Iason
