Should you decide to continue your commercial flight training with Skyborne, we offer the DGCA CPL Programme at Skyborne academy in Vero Beach Florida.

We have always been forward thinking and navigated towards training tools that are innovative and most effective in the arena of pilot training.

The launch of SKYWORX is one such programme by Skyborne, which we believe will provide a high quality, standardized training platform required for our IndiGo cadets completing ground school.
