What our students are saying

My experience with Airwin Portugal Flight Academy is something I highly recommend. It allowed me to do the PPL(A) in a continuous way, facilitating a better retention of knowledge and skills inherent to flight.
Castelo Branco aerodrome offers excellent conditions for a student pilot, as it is located in a region where the meteorology favours VFR flight. The reduced traffic in the region is also advantageous in the initial phase, helping the student pilot to concentrate on flight technique leading to rapid learning, for example, spending more time with the engine in the air instead of taxiing the aircraft, as well as doing more circuits and touch-and-go's.
The excellence of Airwin training at its base in Castelo Branco, coupled with the availability and freedom of schedules that is allowed, were the keys to my successful completion of the PPL course.
With state-of-the-art aircraft, demanding and highly qualified instructors and an excellent location in Castelo Branco aerodrome, I was able to train all flight scenarios safely. Any future pilot will be more than prepared for any challenge that may arise in the future.

Excellence in aeronautical training is our priority


Our main objective is to offer our students the highest quality standards so that they can get the most out of their aeronautical training.

A well-built and maintained aircraft, flown by a competent and prudent pilot, makes flying as safe or safer than many other forms of transportation.

The minimum requirements are to be 17 years of age and pass a Class 1 medical examination if you choose a Commercial Pilot License - CPL(A). For a Private Pilot License - PPL(A), or a Light Aircraft Pilot License - LAPL, as well as being 17 years old, you must pass a Class 2 medical examination. Airwin will be happy to provide you with the necessary information to obtain the correct medical certificate. For more information please contact us.

For LAPL and PPL, a limited amount of study is required on your own time. The ATPL demands a serious commitment to complete the required exams.
