Its all smiles from Charlie! 

Charlie recently joined Isle of Scilly Skybus flying on the DHC-6 Twin Otter as First Officer. She joins several of our former students who are already working for the diverse company providing a lifeline to the island community.

We manage to catch up regularly with Charlie and we can safely say she’s settled into the Cornish life with ease and she’s certainly enjoying flying the Twin Otter and the challenges that come with it.

BCFT and Airline Pilot Academy are becoming uniquely positioned in the U.K, we train our pilots on traditional instrumentation, with our students completing Instrument Ratings flying on traditional gauges and dials meaning they can transition easily to modern glass or easily continue flying traditional gauged aircraft, something thats essential for Isle of Scilly Skybus!
