Welcome to the Airline Pilot Club’s (APC) own page in our partner ATO, Bartolini Air. Bartolini Air and APC have combined to provide you with the best possible preparation and delivery of high-quality airline pilot training. You will see that Bartolini Air are encouraging you to come to APC, do our Indicative Assessment and get Ready for your Airline Pilot Career. Here are APC’s 8 Steps to an Airline Pilot career:

APC was founded by Captain Andy O’Shea and Captain Petter Hornfeldt. You might well know Petter as Mentour Pilot, and his hugely popular YouTube channel. Together we have the experience, credibility and reach to help you and your family make good choices about how you could become an Airline Pilot.

One of the most important aspects of this is Andy’s experience in working with flying schools (ATO) as the former Ryanair Head of Training. Andy dealt with many, many ATOs over those 18 years. Through his wide network, he has a great insight into what it takes to be a successful candidate and eventually an airline pilot.

This is why Bartolini Air is one of APC’s first partner ATOs. Bartolini Air has proven itself to be a really effective training organisation. It provides great training and great value. It has a proven track record of providing successful applicants to EASA airlines.

We in APC have full confidence that you will get good training and great career opportunities by completing your training in Bartolini Air.

Indicative Assessment

APC and the experts in airline pilot assessments, AON Assessment Solutions, have combined to produce what we call an Indicative Assessment (IA). The IA is designed to give you and your family a strong indication as to whether you have the abilities and personality characteristics necessary to become an effective and happy Airline Pilot. You will be able to complete it in the comfort of your own home.

 The result of the IA will be one of 3 outcomes: READY, ALMOST READY & NOT READY. You can do the IA and not join APC, but we strongly recommend that you do so! See below for information on APC member benefits.
