The Airline Pilot Club Announces Partnership with ASG

APC and ASG have announced the launch of a partnership that is aimed at providing aspirant airline pilots with professional career guidance and high-quality theoretical training as they move along the Modular route to an airline pilot career.

APC has established an 8-step process that guides people and their families through all the key issues associated with becoming an airline pilot. ASG has earned a reputation for providing high-quality ATPL Theory training, including a “virtual” IAA EASA approved ATPL theory course.

APC’s process provides an online assessment of an individual’s suitability for the airline pilot career. Member webinars are designed to improve preparation for, and awareness of, the airline pilot career. A key element of the APC process is to connect its members with high quality Approved Training Organisations (ATO) such as ASG.

APC founder, Captain Andy O’Shea FRAeS along with ASG Managing Director, Diarmuid O’Riordan have unique experience and connections in the airline industry. This partnership will allow them to leverage these wide-ranging resources so that APC members and ASG trainees benefit from introductions to well-known airlines throughout Europe and the best possible start to an airline pilot career.

Commenting on the announcement, APC founder and CEO, Captain Andy O’Shea said “We are very pleased to announce the launch of our partnership with ASG. I am very aware of the quality that Diarmuid O’Riordan and his team provides to ASG students. We are excited to give our members access to these and other ASG training services at preferential rates, available only to APC members.

We have combined to provide ASG’s great ATPL theory training, APC’s unique Indicative Assessment and full membership of APC for the sum of €2700.

Diarmuid O’Riordan, ASG’s founder added: “We’re excited to be partnering with the APC. The modular flight training market can prove to be a real challenge to navigate for prospective Pilots with the many options, permutations, and potential pitfalls. The wealth of industry knowledge, training acumen, and experience that both Capts. Andy O’Shea and Petter Hörnfeldt bring to student Pilots is immense. By becoming an APC member, future Pilots can effectively reduce the risks associated with what is a sizable investment – the APC vets its partner ATOs and accepts only those who share their philosophy towards training quality and student success. Moreover, before spending significant sums of money, students who complete APC’s indicative assessment receive a realistic appraisal of their suitability for the role of an airline pilot and, therefore, their likelihood of achieving employment in the future. We’re delighted to be able to make ASG’s high quality ATPL theory training available to the APC membership at exclusive rates”.
