The World comes to ITPS!

The world’s air forces and industry send their best and brightest to ITPS to learn about flight testing. Our outstanding international team, comprised of 23 full-time fixed and rotary wing flight test instructors, provides a world-class education in flight testing in one of the most diverse and exciting training aircraft fleets in the world.

ITPS is an EASA ATO approved for Civil Pilot CAT-1 and CAT-2 Flight Test Ratings and Lead Flight Testing Engineer courses for fixed and rotary wing aircraft. Our one-year Masters Level course for military customers is recognised by the Society of Experimental Test Pilots (SETP) and the Society of Flight Test Engineers (SFTE). To date, students from over 25 air arms have graduated from this course.

Pilots and Engineers at ITPS are immersed in an active flight test organisation undertaking the development of aircraft modifications and upgrades, avionics systems development, and fly-by-wire flight controls systems testing.

ITPS is also a post-graduate degree granting institution offering Master of Science programmes in Flight Test Engineering and Flight Testing either as part of its flight test courses or as standalone programmes.
