Safety - Quality - Rigor - Skills Development
Since 2011, from Portugal to the world.
The LUSOFLY brand was born in 2011 with the aim of fostering aerospace knowledge among the sector’s enthusiasts. It emerged as a result of a project of an aeromodelling club from Tomar: the Youth Club Os Aerocalminhas, which since 1987 has inspired several young people in the discovery of a future career path, in the aerospace sector.
Over the years, several activities have been developed, such as aeromodelling, virtual flight, spotting and presentations, connecting young people from all over the world. Identifying the growing need to train pilots
to train pilots and because we believe that we can bring an added value to the aviation sector, our multidisciplinary team, composed of professionals from various areas of aerospace, decided to bet on the development of a new project with the creation of LUSOFLY Academy. With this decision we give continuity to the initial project, contributing to the aeronautical culture and training professionals
professionals of excellence in the aviation sector, making us a reference in training.
