Leveraging our FAA and EASA-certified flight school, IDAG has graduated thousands of pilots from courses that range from ab initio training to the most advanced mission training scenarios.

This allows us to step in when initial training contracts expire, when traditional flight-schools do not teach advanced tactics, or to provide a cost-effective regional solution that reduces travel and per-diem costs for students.
