No wonder why there are so many negative reviews about flying academy here.

It was one of my biggest mistake of my life considering flying academy.They will will be so nice and friendly till the date to get you enrolled. Once you make the payment they will be even not talk to you anymore.

I left my training half way and started in another place from zero so lost around 4000 euro for nothing.

I am writing this just let you guys know that its gonna be your biggest wrong choice to consider flying academy. I wouldn't recommend this place unless you don't care about your money then go ahead.

Try Bartolini in poland.its one of the best ATO in the European countries. positive student satisfaction, better training facilities and so cheap and so on.
flying academy will steal your money with their hidden charges and then when you trying to talk to someone in management they will avoid you.

Flying academy Europe

The school is not so bad neither the aircrafts. The time you will do the training will be fast, in other places is slower . But the things which the school will **** you up are others behind the scenes - THE EXAMINERS. Do not go for Austrian license because the school is based in Czech republic they have huge argues with Czech CAA and you will get delayed with the Czech examiners will be their excuse - no it is not like this. Czech examiners will come on time and all will be fine. Why I talk about that they will ask you to change your license to Austrian - because they will bring private examiner who will rip you off with the price but this is again not the case. The case is that the examiner and the school they work together and if he wants he will FAIL YOU INTENTIONALLY .

NO MATTER HOW GOOD PILOT YOU ARE. I SAW THIS !!! at the beginning the examiner was nice and good after that he got jealous because he was not able to get all the money for himself due to the school brought other examiners from Austria and he started dealing with the school and filing the students.

Remember during your skill test there are no cameras, nothing - all depends on the examiner. I regret i Changed my license to Austrian and went through this shit. DO not listen to the others, also Austrian licence is super expensive. Will cost you more than 1000 EUR for one piece of paper which in Czech rep. is 4-5 EUR. If you are Russian speaking you will get the best examiners because the whole administration are russians and they will give you examiners to pass. When you are from other country you are not their people so they will screw you with examiners to fail you. Failing means - more hours, more skill tests, more money. This is how the school work !!! Working with examiners behind you. The training is OK - level went down after I finished but was OK. My recommendation is to stay with Czech license and do not spend money for nothing. Good luck

I know some guys at Austrian, former coworkers. But I never heard of this thing that examiners try to let you fail. Before you spend your money at Flying Academy go and try other schools first.

Flying Academy Prague Base

Flying Academy robber is an infamous school. You go for a 7,000 Euro PPL license, but you pay 12,000 Euros. They make a lot of hidden payments. They make 3 flights, then they say there is no money in your account.

The education quality is very bad, the planes are very old.

In particular, I tell Turkish Citizen friends, don't believe the Turkish speaking rogue person there.
