Requirements to become a pilot

You can become a pilot anywhere, but with us, you can become a captain pilot

Getting a CPL does not guarantee a job in a major airline. Many CPL holders cannot find a decent job despite the numerous job opportunities in the aviation sector. That is due to the lack of training on large aircraft. There is nothing in their training to help transition them from flying small training aircraft to flying large transport aircraft.
OxfordSaudia found the best solution for this dilemma. It is the only academy in the world to offer Type Rating for Airbus A320 as part of its training program. Our graduates get a CPL, PPL, IR and Type Rating for Airbus A320.
