Portrait of Trainee pilot Manvir
Travel & Aviation student Manvir is soaring to new heights after being selected to train as a pilot!
She starts her EASA Integrated Pilot Training next month with Airways Aviation.
Manvir was invited to attend selection at the London Oxford Airport-based Academy, where she passed a Compass/Aptitude assessment and face-to-face interview with flying colours.


Manvir said: “I was really nervous because I didn’t know what to expect, but I’m so happy to have successfully completed both stages and earned my place on the Elite Pathways Programme. I’ve always thought that you had to have A* grades in maths and English, and some academies ask for a university background.
“When I left school I wanted to be in an airline related profession and my lecturer encouraged me to apply for this programme. Only three per cent of pilots are women and it’s always been my dream to be one.”
