  • "Fantastic Training"

    IAGO helped me with fantastic training both in the classroom and simulator to complete my type rating and base training to become employed as a First Officer by Thomas Cook. I currently fly the A321 around Europe and North Africa.

    A highlight of my training would have to be going out to Larnaca, Cyprus to complete my base training. The views were incredible and it was really fun flying an empty A319!
