We love aviation. And we love to fly. Because we strongly believe that people need to travel to meet each other face to face and to meet new people and new cultures. This is a basic need for us humans to understand each other and the planet that we all share. But to be able to continue doing this in the future then flying needs to have as low environmental footprint as possible. This is an evolution that Green Flight Academy want to be part of.

Our lead word is Consideration. Concideration for the future and with respect for the changes that need to be made to reduce emissions during flight training. Our concern also extends to the student. We want our students to feel safe with us and have a comfortable and orderly stay in Skellefteå.
