Patria Pilot Training in Finland is one of the largest basic flight training organisations in northern Europe. Patria is an EASA Approved Training Organisation (ATO). The School was founded in 1998 and has trained hundreds of professional pilots during the 20 years of its operations.
Patria's new training center at Tampere-Pirkkala airport is a top modern base for a large flight school. The building has been in operation since May 2017.
All necessary functions to run the school are located under one roof: classrooms, meeting rooms, large hangar to house a fleet of 16 aircraft, in-house aircraft maintenance, three Flight Training Devices, flight planning areas, comfortable Student lounge, kitchenettes and office space.
Patria's fleet is among the newest in the business. We currently fly two different models of aircraft, depending on the training phase:
- Diamond DA40 NG for basic training and basic instrument training
- Diamond DA42-VI
- Diamond DA42 NG FNPT II
- Airbus A320 fixed base simulator
