Just checked it out (online). They have a fairly complete website, with plenty of information. Apparently good facilities/airport to train from, plus a large fleet. However, while their quote for integrated ATPL is reasonable, some of the licences/ratings in the modular option are very expensive. Exemple: 11,500 Euros for an EASA PPL - seriously? You can do that in a French aeroclub for half that price. Same goes for CPL and MEP. If you break down their quote by flight hour, some of those cost in excess of 300 Euros/hour with instructor - on a Cessna 172! Not what I call cheap... On the other hand, 2,500 + Euros for an MCC course on an FNPT II is ok. Also, they describe the integrated ATPL course duration as varying between 12 and... 36 months!

The bottom line when choosing an FTO for commercial training is always to go and visit them, armed with all the info from their website etc, and to ask lots of questions. Don't part with your hard-earned cash unless you are satisfied with your visit (and their answers). You are the client, so drive a hard bargain!
