About us

Atlantic Airways Aviation Academy, located in the Faroe Islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, operates Europe's most advanced and versatile simulator centres.

The rugged, pristine, and beautiful Faroese landscape provides the perfect backdrop for all your training needs.

Founded and operated by Atlantic Airways in 2022 with the ambition to be Europe's most advanced Aviation Academy - we look forward to welcoming our first "students" in mid-2024.

Atlantic Airways has operated helicopters since 1994 for scheduled passenger flights and HEMS/SAR/HOIST operations since 2001.

Atlantic Airways ATO (previously TRTO) was established in 2005.

We started using Bell212 (later Bell412SAR) as our primary operating platform. The First AW139 was purchased in 2008, and since 2016, we have exclusively operated with fully SAR-capable AW139 helicopters.

Our experienced instructors and pilots have flown countless real-life SAR missions in and around the Faroe Islands and Greenland - Offshore operations in the Danish, Dutch, and UK sectors and Qatar, Iran, and Yemen.
