FTA Global officially merge with Apollo Aircraft Maintenance

Alexandra O'Loughlin22 Oct 2020

Apollo Aircraft Maintenance and FTA Global are pleased to announce that they have now merged as a single business. The aircraft maintenance company and flight school have always worked closely together, referring to each other as ‘sister’ organisations. The change means that Apollo Aircraft Maintenance, now FTA Maintenance, has become the school’s dedicated maintenance division.

The acquisition is part of a host of changes FTA Global are introducing. They have recently refurbished their facilities and added to both their training fleet and flight instruction team. Having a dedicated team of engineers on site is a major benefit to a busy flight school, as Managing Director for FTA Global, Sean Jacob, explains:

“An effective service and maintenance provision for our flight school is integral to our business. This month our company flew almost 1,000 hours, which is a record for FTA Global. Safety and efficiency are core values our businesses share. Engineering excellence and operational efficiency is a significant asset which is appreciated by our students.”
