27/11/2019 - British School of Aviation flying high

The world-renowned Monarch Airlines Engineering Training Academy facilities at London Luton Airport have been purchased from the joint administrators at KPMG, by British School of Aviation (BSA).

BSA has chosen the former Monarch Airlines Engineering Training Academy building as the base for its first ever Aviation Academy, with plans to expand into more facilities nationally and internationally over the next five years.

The School launched its first UK Civil Aviation Authority approved Engineering courses in November, with other aviation disciplines to follow. 

With a need for improved diversity within the aviation sector, BSA aims to open up the airline industry to all, working with local communities to encourage more students to train for careers in aviation.

Industry experts Anoop Singh Bamrah, Shonu Bamrah, Matt Harvey and Richard Cooper form the directors of the Board at British School of Aviation, alongside Peter Kara (a non-executive director of Veruth Holdings). The launch has been equity and loan financed by:

  • Veruth Holdings Ltd
  • Peter Kara
  • Falcon Flying Services

Director of BSA, Matt Harvey, comments, “We are so pleased to have secured this lucrative investment from Veruth Holdings. We now have the capacity to grow exponentially and we are confident that this investment will ensure the long-term growth of British School of Aviation.”

BSA will provide a new and simplified model of training for the aviation industry, which will enable airlines to outsource all of their requirements for a broad range of key specialist aviation personnel to one industry leading training organisation. The aim is to create a footprint in the UK, which will ultimately be adapted at a local level worldwide.
