Aeroclub Varese Club was officially opened in 1948. It gradually increased its fleet and reputation and, by 1960, had made the important transition from a club for private pilots to a fully-fledged flying school geared to the training of professional pilots.
Our reputation has been built primarily through our training of pilots for the major airlines in Italy.
Alitalia in first place, followed by other airlines such as Livingston, Neos, Meridiana, Air One, Air Italy, Rayan Air, Wind Jet , Air Alps, to name a few.
The airport licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority, is a military infrastructure, home base of Aermacchi-Alenia aircraft manifacture.
It is located 15 miles NE of Milano Malpensa airport.
It has a 1.200 mt. long runway and its own ILS instrument approach aid.
Our facilities are modern and comprehensively equipped to provide student pilots with all the necessary tools to help them to learn and complete their training effectively and efficiently using the very latest technology.
The School structure
The ground training is conducted in our 3 classrooms. They are fully air conditioned and equipped with either digital projectors or large plasma screens to display our computer aided instruction, which supports our instructors to deliver training in an interesting and stimulating manner.
Our airline pilot training courses are well designed and delivered through the use of a mix of 13 aircraft and one modern flight simulator with a particularly capable visual system.
Our fleet includes:
- 8 Cessna C172
- 3 Piper PA28 Warrior
- 1 Piper PA32 Saratoga
- 1 Piper PA34 Seneca
Our aircraft are well maintained by our own in-house Maintenance Centre which have reputation for quality and workmanship of the highest standards.
There can be no compromise whatsoever when it comes to flight safety.
Capable and accurate flying on flight instruments is a primary skill expected of an airline pilot.
Since the foundation of the JAA, greater use of simulator technology (FNPTs) is now permitted on pilot training courses, thus significant investment in a high fidelity simulator reflects our commitment to providing high standards in the delivery of instrument training.
The simulator operated at Aeroclub Varese, is an advanced Ascent FNPTll-MCC synthetic flight Trainer manufactured by Mechtronix Systems Inc. a leading provider of flight training devices worldwide.
Although it is primarily an instrument trainer, it features a 180-degrees field of view panoramic cylindral Visual System with Rediffun Simulation Inc. RASTER flite Image generator. A real time visual software offering superior resolution and providing locally generated weather, moving models and special effects .
The system is so effective that visual circuit training and similar activities can all be incorporated effectively into a training syllabus.
It can be configured as EFIS B200 King Air Turbo-Jet Prop aircraft Equipped with Garmin 530 GPS.
Capable of operating to a maximum altitude of 33,000 feet and True Airspeed of 260 kts, is an effecitve tool to deliver Multi-Crew Cooperation training and to meet specific airline training requirements.
