Egnatia Aviation Academy

Egnatia Aviation Training Academy is one of the leading Flight Training Organisations in Europe, providing pilots to many airlines around the world. It is approved by EASA to provide airline pilot training at all levels. The excellent weather and the low-cost environment of Greece, the unrestricted operation in 2 different bases and the excellent locations enables us to deliver consistent training all year round. We operate at international airports with modern navigation facilities rather than small General Aviation airports without the instruments required to provide airline training, said George Triantafyllidis, Business Development Director of Egnatia Aviation.

Egnatia Aviation provides training to the cadets of major airlines such as Olympic Air, Aegean Airlines, Iraqi Airways and Wizz Air. In addition, we provide pilots to EasyJet, Qatar Airways, Emirates, Air Arabia, Kuwait Airways, Oman Air and others, meeting local Authority and Airline recruitment needs. In all our courses we mirror the Airline procedures, methodology and environment (e.g. airline call-outs, iPads rather than paper etc.) focusing both on technical and non-technical skills (competencies). Our main goal is every graduate finds work, therefore the cooperation with Cockpit4U is a win-win situation for everyone, said Triantafyllidis.


Cockpit4u is one of the leading Approved Training Organisations (ATO‘s) in the world. We’re based in Berlin-Schönefeld – an excellent training location near the Airport SXF. At Cockpit4u, we believe that excellence in aviation is the result of precise hands-on training with highly-skilled instructors. We are committed to safety and impeccable standards. Our services cover the complete spectrum from Type Rating, MCC and SFI/TRI training to airline related cockpit crew training on Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier aircrafts. It doesn’t matter if you are a newcomer or a 10,000 hour captain – you will find exactly what you are looking for.

“Teamwork in flight” is not just our slogan, it’s our business culture. Career starters on their way to the airline cockpit and experienced professional pilots who need to learn how to fly a different aircraft type can both expect Cockpit4u to cater to their individual needs and support them throughout all stages of theoretical and practical training. Combined with the latest technology, we offer you the best prerequisites for your success. Most of our trainers are professional pilots who work for world renowned airlines. Flight Training Organisations and Airlines consider us to be the right partners for them. This is because we – and our instructors around the world – cater to your needs as we work together with them. The similarity of the business philosophy of Egnatia Aviation and Cockpit4u form a symbiosis for contemporary training in the aviation industry. Therefore, I agree that the cooperation with Egnatia Aviation is a win-win situation for everyone, said Christos Diamantopoulos, Managing Director of Cockpit4u.
