Who are L3Harris?

“Welcome to the future of commercial aviation.”

L3 Harris Airline Academy, formerly CTC Aviation, was founded in 1929 with a vision to provide outstanding training to commercial airline Pilots and Cadets. Their long-standing reputation and commitment to providing the most premium training available have ensured they continue to attract experienced and aspiring pilots from across the world to their state-of-the-art $100 million facilities, which were unveiled by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2019.

With the most experienced Flight Instructors in the industry teaching their cadets as well as their strong relationships with countless global commercial airlines, in 2019 a staggering 95% of their graduates were placed with an airline either in the UK or Europe. With the academy providing the highest calibre of training it is hardly surprising that graduates of L3Harris are in high demand with many leading airlines, including Air France, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, EasyJet, Norwegian, Jetstar and WOW.

L3Harris also support many commercial airlines in training their experienced Pilots to the highest levels to ensure they are up to date with regulatory standards.
