Our Core Values


We are dedicated to safety and security, the elimination of hazards and protecting people, property and our environment




ACS Aviation are based at Perth Airport, which is the hub of General Aviation in Scotland, located centrally between Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow.



ACS Aviation have announced a series of new multi million pound investments and commitments as it moves to begin the renewal of its aircraft fleet in 2023. Scotland’s largest commercial pilot training academy, which currently operates 20 aircraft from its main base at Perth Airport, will eventually say goodbye to the older aircraft with sale and leasing agreements in place, as it welcomes the next-generation of aircraft into service in 2023. The new P Mentor aircraft offer up to a 60% per cent reduction in carbon emissions compared to the legacy training fleet which operate from Perth Airport. 

After an incredibly successful year and strong growth in 2022, ACS are pleased to confirm the new aircraft order will commence from summer 2023 onwards. The company will also become the first Tecnam aircraft service centre in Scotland offering specialist aircraft maintenance and technical support to its customers. The move follows a successful period for ACS Aviation where a record number of graduates have secured positions as first officers with leading UK airlines.

“Tecnam’s P-Mentor aircraft will allow us to significantly reduce our carbon footprint in Commercial Flight Training and Upset Prevention Recovery Training with the added benefit of state-of-the-art instrumentation that will help us propel, even further, into our sustainable double-digit growth”. Said Craig McDonald, Technical Director at ACS Aviation.
“Tecnam has always provided an excellent combination of technical specifications and value for money. With the P-Mentor, Tecnam has taken a huge leap forward with the addition of an affordable and smart IFR trainer. This will change the entire pilot training industry for IFR training.” says Tecnam’s Chief Sales Officer, Walter Da Costa.
