We love aviation. And we love to fly. Because we strongly believe that people need to travel to meet family and friends face-to-face and to discover new places and cultures. But to be able to continue to fly in the future, the environmental footprint of air travel must be reduced. This is an evolution that Green Flight Academy wants to be a part of.
The World’s Most Sustainable Flight Academy.
Our core values is Consideration, Innovation and Openness.
Consideration for the future and with respect for the changes that need to be made to reduce emissions of flight training. Our concern also extends to the student. We want our students to be and feel safe with a comfortable and rewarding stay in Skellefteå. Therefore, we attach great importance to taking care of our students before and when they arrive in here, from arranged accommodation to a solid on-boarding program.
Innovation by using technology that reduces the environmental impact of our flight training. But innovation is also about constantly challenging ourselves to consider novel ideas and make education better and not limit ourselves to traditional patterns.
Openness means that we want to be open when it comes to our process; ups and downs, mistakes and successes. We believe that openness is crucial in a safety culture but also an important key for improvement. We are implementing a feedback culture with our students and staff early on in training to help us improve.
