Our history

Founded back in 1961, we have an established heritage in aviation. We began as a school for military pilots converting to civilian flying using flight simulators and a fleet of Beagles, trading under the name Airways Training. Over the past 60 years we have evolved and developed into the global aviation services group we are today. 

Acquired by Wheels Up in April 2022, Air Partner continues to operate with the same values and customer-first principles that have set us apart for over 6 decades.
