Air Service Training Ltd (AST) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Perth College UHI, part of the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI). AST themselves have been a world leader in the field of Aviation training since 1934, making it arguably the longest-established organisation of its kind in the world.
Since its formation, AST has had a long and successful history of providing Pilot and Engineer training for the world's airlines, maintenance organisations and military formations. Training Pilots and Engineers for two of the most demanding professions in the world requires a very special approach, and complete dedication to the highest safety standards. From its earliest beginnings, AST has focussed on the delivery of high-quality training ensuring the most stringent of safety standards.
The AST flight training facilities are situated on the spacious Perth College UHI campus and at Perth Airport, which is four miles north of 'The Fair City' of Perth in Central Scotland. It has an attractive rural location and is less than two hours flying time from London, while the major Scottish cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee are all within an hour's drive.
