During the years a lot of pilots have completed their pilot training at the flight school, for example military pilots has been trained to civilian air transport pilots, and pilots were trained for Scandinavian Airlines, SAS, and Linjeflyg. The flight school was the first school in Sweden to get the permission to train pilots in integrated Ab-initio programs.
