Flight Crew Connect

11 September, 2017 

We are very excited to release Flight Crew Connect. Over the past six months, we have been working on developing a Flight Crew Community which is easy to use, accessible and fun.

For our ATPLOnline students, Flight Crew Connect will be the place where you can get course assistance from our ATPL course developers. This now supersedes our email helpdesk system.

​If you are student pilot, private pilot, commercial pilot - including flight instructors, or an ATPL pilot - this community is for you. Flight Crew Connect is currently in beta. Access is currently limited to past and present students of So if this is you, then head over to now and sign up for free.
