About Dibden Manor

Dibden Manor is the official Group Headquarters for CTC Aviation Group Limited.  On a day to day basis it is actively used as our Crew Accommodation Centre and Crew Selection Centre, but we do also run training courses here during busy times.  

Located in the village of Dibden, near Southampton on the south coast of England, the Manor was built in 1906, in the style of Edward Lutyens and stands in nine acres of beautiful private grounds, between the peace and natural splendour of the New Forest and the thriving city of Southampton. Providing a relaxing, self-contained environment, visitors regularly comment on the welcoming atmosphere and the friendliness of staff. Away from the normal working routine, they are able to focus on their interview or studies and reap the full benefits of being immersed in an aviation environment mixing with fellow course applicants, course mates and our instructor teams. 


Dedicated selection facilities are equipped with the technology to assess applicant's aptitude skills using 'PILAPT' - the Pilot Aptitude Testing system which sets the industry standard in computer-based-assessment for selecting military and civilian pilots - as well as assessment rooms for both group discussion exercises and more formal interviews. 

Dibden Manor provides full board catering for up to 40 people. The centre has 18 comfortable en-suite bedrooms – each with study area – a relaxing lounge, bar and putting green. There are also plenty of free car-parking facilities for applicants and visitors.

A golf course is situated adjacent to the Manor and there is an excellent sports centre with a full size swimming pool just five minutes away. The beautiful New Forest is within a few minute’s drive enabling access to country walks and jogging/cycling routes.

The Crew Training Centre’s spacious classrooms are fully equipped for traditional and computer based training, and internet access is readily available to all trainees.

Simulator training is integral to our pilot training courses and CTC’s state-of-the-art simulator facility at Nursling, just eight miles from Dibden Manor, provides high-level training support for both Airbus and Boeing aircraft. 

Trainees on our ab initio programmes for client airlines or CTC Wings are likely to find themselves staying here at various points of their UK based training.  It's like home from home with our great team looking after you, full board accommodation and a very relaxing, homely atmosphere.
