Due to limited availability, Airways are unable to offer full CPL ME-IR courses to rotary pilots, but have agreed to run MEP courses on the DA-42 aircraft for rotary pilots. This allows you to keep your booking elsewhere but use the ELCAS status at Airways to reduce your overall course cost by £2000.

Why book through UKFlying? Firstly, there is no extra cost, this a free service. We'll ensure that you get the right course based on your military experience and at the lowest price. You'll also be linked to a Dropbox account with all of the pre-course reading, what to expect, exam guides and DA-42 tech plus examiners favourite test questions! This will make the conversion process much easier.
