GLOBAL AVIATION SA GREECE – Let Your Dreams Take Flight.


Global Aviation SA was founded in 1997 in Athens Greece. The founders’ mission was to build a boutique aviation organisation, offering high-quality aviation services. The four pillars of the organisation are:

  • Pilot Training
  • Cabin Crew Training
  • Aircraft Sales, and
  • Maintenance Services.


Global has a mission of offering its extensive knowledge and expertise in the fields of aircrafts sales, pilot and cabin crew training and aircraft maintenance.

Global’s Flight Academy is the oldest pilot academy in Greece. Having its administrative and ground school base in Athens, Greece and its flying base in the Civil Aviation Airport of Pachi, Megara (LGMG), Global Flight Academy has been training pilots for private and commercial courses, since 1997, when it was approved by the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA).

In 2004 the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA) inspected and approved Global Flight Academy as Flight Training Organization (GR-FTO-002) according to Joint Aviation Regulations (JAR). Global Flight Academy offers integrated and modular courses for:

  • Airline Transport Pilot (ATPL)
  • Private Pilot (PPL) licenses as well as the Instrument (IR)
  • Multi-Engine (MEP)
  • Flight Instructor (FI) and
  • Type Ratings

All courses are according to the JAR-FCL. Upon successful completion of any course, the student pilot is awarded the respective JAA (EASA) license by the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA), a member of the JAA and EASA.

Global Aviation is approved by the HCAA and EASA to offer Cabin Crew Training Courses as GR-CCTO-102. All theoretical training takes place in Global Aviation’s ground school base in Athens. The courses’ practical training takes place in approved locations including the Athens International Airport in accordance with HCAA and EASA.

Global Aviation offers 3-months long initial cabin crew training courses designed for individuals who wish to follow a career as cabin crew in the dynamic aviation industry and intensive cabin crew courses that can be tailored to meet the needs of domestic and international airlines.

Global’s Aircraft Sales Division is the exclusive distributor of “Piper Aircraft” in Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Romania and Bulgaria, as well as, a sales agent of “Bombardier Business Jets” in the region.

Global’s Maintenance Centre is offering top-quality, tailor-made aircraft maintenance solutions. Having its base in the general aviation airport of Pachi, Megara (LGMG), Global is certified by the HCAA and EASA to offer maintenance services for single and multi-engine piston and turbo-prop airplanes as Maintenance Organisation EL.MF.004.

Moreover, Global is a certified Continuous Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO) offering continuous airworthiness management services for single and multi-engine piston and turbo-prop airplanes as CAMO EL.MG.039.

Fast-track training:

The fast-track training, just like the course Global Aviation offers, is the quickest and least expensive route to becoming a commercial pilot. Fast-track programs are flight programs that allow students with zero flight hours to gain the necessary experience to become commercial pilots in a very short amount of time, covering the minimum training duration of one (1) year that EASA requires. These programs typically encompass a 10-month ground school training and a flight training of 205hrs in single and multi-engine aircrafts and in FNTP II Flight Simulators.

In addition to the specific training courses, there are several quality factors a prospective student has to consider when choosing a flight school. Global Aviation’s Flight Academy with more than 20 years of experience in aviation training is constantly evaluating these factors and offers the highest quality training services to its students.

Global graduates are working in the world’s most prestigious airline.

Great View

Not many people in the world can say they have an office in the clouds. Nothing beats the view from a cockpit. Most pilots say it’s a view they never grow tired of.
