ASG awarded Aviation School of the year 2021 at Irish Enterprise Awards

Irish ATO ASG, who specialise in ATPL Theoretical Knowledge, has been awarded Aviation School of the Year 2021 at the Irish Enterprise Awards. Now in its fourth year of showcasing exemplary Irish business, the awards programme has continued to highlight and recognise the enterprises that are thriving across the entirety of Ireland. Whilst it is an understatement to say that the last year has been a challenging one, the COVID-19 pandemic has also been a catalyst for immense change. There have been times of uncertainty that have forced a colossal transformation of global business; however, many Irish enterprises and businesses have achieved great things despite the obstacles facing them. Ultimately, every success – whether a minor victory or major achievement – should be celebrated as an extraordinary accomplishment given these unprecedented times.

Speaking about the award, Diarmuid O’Riordan, ASG founder, commented that: “We were first contacted in December 2020 and were advised that we had been nominated for this award. This past year has left aviation training organisations with little choice but to innovate, improvise, and to overcome the unprecedented challenges facing us as all a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. We have invested significantly throughout the pandemic with our hybrid classroom concept and feel that we are now well positioned to grow as the aviation industry recovers, and to deliver for our students across what is now a location independent global aviation training market.  Winning this award is a validation of how the ASG team has responded to these challenges and continue to go from strength to strength in order to enrich the learning experience for our students”.
