“We have been a partner of Bristol Groundschool since we opened our flight school in 2009.

We chose to use their training material because of their reputation in the industry and also personal knowledge of their system. Based on our experience and student exam results, we are very happy and will continue to choose Bristol GS for our students!

We highly recommend flight schools to partner with Bristol Groundschool and use their high-quality training material.

Isabella Herl, Skyflight Air Academy


“I changed to Bristol Groundschool and my TKIs have been most complimentary. They love the graphics and videos in the CBT, which make difficult and confusing subjects exceptionally clear.

I have also had excellent feedback from students. As CTKI I have also had superb backup from the technical team at BGS. Any queries have always been resolved very speedily.

To sum up, I would not hesitate to recommend BGS to any ATO.”

Alastair Stevenson, Booker Aviation


“The trust our company has shown over the years in BGS is a strong indicator of the high quality of BGS’s products and services – from computer-based and printed training materials through to interactive videos and sample exams. BGS’s support and guidance has been thorough and timely, whether for day-to-day inquiries or more significant issues.

We would highly recommend BGS to any future client. They have provided the resources and expertise to successfully meet our requests on every occasion.”

Christina Eleni Christa, Global Aviation SA, Greece


“We had the opportunity to run a few courses requiring training material from various providers. I am not exaggerating, saying that BGS has been the best by far!

To start with the material is of high standards and so far has been easy for our instructors to explain and for our students to understand. The application is user friendly, and until now we had no issues working with it.

Finally, I would say the most important aspect of BGS service, is the support we have received from your organization, and especially from you. All our requests and questions have been answered clearly, and promptly no matter if it was a bank holiday or out of office hours.

Your professional attitude has created a comfortable environment for us as we feel fully supported by BGS.”

Christos Tsitsos, Head of Training, Crew Academy
