CTC Aviation Group Limited is a leading provider of aviation training and consultancy services to major airlines round the world as well as individual pilots.
Our Crew Training Centre, Nursling is a state-of-the-art simulator facility located on the outskirts of Southampton on the south coast of England - just a few minutes from our Crew Accommodation and Airline Selection Centre at Dibden Manor and approximately 25 minutes’ drive from our Crew Training Centre – Bournemouth. The centre provides high-level training support for the ATPL theory, Intermediate and Advanced stages of your CTC Wings training as well as airline specific training for qualified airline pilots from our client airlines around the world.
Cadets on the European programmes will spend the first 5 months of their training here completing their ATPL theory before heading off to New Zealand to start the flying training. You will then return to Nursling towards the end of your training to complete your Intermediate and Advanced training before joining your airlines. (Very occasionally some airlines deliver the type rating - Advanced - training themselves. On those occasions you may find that you complete your final phase of training with your airline rather than CTC. This could even mean a trip abroad again.)
Cadets from the New Zealand and Jetstar programmes will also get to experience the airline atmosphere at Nursling as you too will normally complete your Airline Qualification Course and type rating training with CTC at our Nursling facility.
CTC's Crew Training Centre Nursling is located three miles from the centre of Southampton on the south coast of England and just under two hours driving time from London.
1 mile south of junction 3 (the M271 junction) on the M27(W).
10 minutes drive from Southampton Central station, with frequent services to London and Gatwick.
15 minutes drive from Southampton International Airport, 45 minutes from Bournemouth Airport, approximately one hour from Heathrow and just under two hours from Gatwick.
Leave the M27 West at Junction 3 onto the M271 and proceed south along the M271 towards Totton. Take the first sliproad off the M271 and at the top of the sliproad turn right over the motorway and into Nursling Industrial Estate.
At the next roundabout take the third exit into Franconia Drive, left at the next mini roundabout into Mauretania Road and the Crew Training Centre will be a short distance along on your left.
