Skyward’s expert consultants will meet you where you are, providing in-person or online training sessions to streamline the program launch.

In-person

Three-day training course – our most comprehensive training option, including classroom lectures and hands-on flight training

Hybrid

1.5 days online classroom lectures and 2 days hands-on flight training. Best for minimizing COVID-19 risk while delivering quality training.

Remote

1.5 days of fully online lecture sessions. Provides valuable skills for programs without the need for travel or face-to-face interaction, but lacks hands-on flight training.

The training, both the classroom and the hands-on training were fantastic. We were able to accomplish all of our goals to be compliant, safe, insured, minimize our risks in a fashion and in a timeline that was far compressed from what we could have done on our own.
