Neil McKenzie – Flight Instructor

Neil has a wealth of experience and is able to instruct towards PPL (A), LAPL (A) and night rating, he is also able to conduct SEP Re-validations. When not flying jets around the world Neil still continues to enjoy instructing at Almat. His flying career all started with a trial flying lesson whilst he was still at school, he was later awarded a Royal Navy Gliding scholarship. After attending university he worked within various ground based roles in order to fund his flying training.

Upon completion of his flying training Neil started his first flying job as a full time flying instructor teaching primarily PPL. He then moved onto the airlines and has operated as a pilot on both passenger and cargo aircraft. Neil has experience flying the Jetstream 31, Boeing 757/767 and is currently a first officer flying the Boeing 787.

Had a lesson today, my second in 12 months. Todays instructor, Neil, took me up in a Cessna 152. Weather was gorgeous and I had control for most of the flight. Almat’s professionalism and attention to detail in all aspects, on the ground and in the air, was first class. Will certainly be back in the near future. Thanks guys.
