On 1 March Entry Point North, one of the largest global ATS academies, opened its fifth training site in Europe, located in Madrid, Spain. The establishment of the Spanish training site is the newest outcome of its continuous global expansion with the aim to offer top quality training with local presence. Today Entry Point North offers training and services at its sites in Sweden, Denmark, Ireland, Hungary, Spain as well as at client sites in many other European countries, China, Thailand and the Middle East region.

The newly established academy will primarily deliver Initial ATC training courses for Spanish students who will work for ENAIRE or any other air navigation service provider in Spain.

Modern classroom and simulator facilities are fully established for Tower, Approach and Area Control training. Basic ATC and all Rating courses will be offered based on Entry Point North’s well proven training philosophy and methodology in full compliance with Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/340. The training will be delivered by a team of professional international and Spanish instructors with a close support from the headquarters in Malmö.

Currently two ATC training programmes are offered in Madrid, an APS+ACS+APP/ACP programme for the students who already hold ADI/ADV Rating and a full ATC Initial training programme for the ab-initio students.

The academy is located in the vicinity of Madrid-Barajas Airport in the San Fernando Business Park and is easily accessible from Madrid city centre or the airport.

“I am delighted to announce the opening of the fifth training site within Entry Point North Group. This gives us an opportunity to bring our top quality ATC training now also to Spanish students” – says Anne Kathrine Jensen, CEO.
