Education Contents

In cooperation with South East Technological University (SETU) in Carlow, Ireland, GreyBird Pilot Academy now offers a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Pilot Studies.

The educational programme includes:

  • Introduction course at GreyBird Pilot Academy during the first month.
  • Nine months of living and studying in Ireland.
  • The remainder of the commercial pilot education for the next 22-24 months:
    • Theory lessons at your home base

All this in less than three years. 

With a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Pilot Studies, you will have what modern airline companies want. We have asked them what they need for their future pilots to learn, and our education is based on their answers. Among other things, they want you to learn coordination skills, problem-solving skills, management of aircraft, and they want maturity. In other words, they want highly skilled international commercial pilots – and that is what you will become.

SETU and GreyBird Pilot Academy make sure that you will experience a safe student journey.  We will plan all the steps for you so that you will not encounter any unforeseen surprises or expenses, and we will follow you from the beginning to end. In Carlow, one dedicated local person will make sure that everything goes according to plan, and representatives from GreyBird Pilot Academy will visit you several times during your stay. 

You will live in well-equipped student apartments within walking distance from the university. Living within the community will help improve your English and will make you accustomed to adapting to life in different countries and cultures.  South East Technological University is a state-funded public university.  It is modern and has state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. The university and the training programme have been approved by GreyBird Pilot Academy’s CEO, AM, CFI and CTKI, and we guarantee that at SETU, you will get a high-quality mix of theory and practice.
