Tendencies in the field of tourism are dramatically and rapidly changing.

Our school teaches these new trends to its students while helps them benefit from the changing market.

While students get aquatinted with tourism and the travel industry in depth, they uniquely receive a parallel training of aviation and commercial flying.
We are proud to have chosen the best professors and travel experts of Hungary as lecturers and professors in our school. The dual degree students receive, allows a global view on the complete field of tourism, while offering a professional and internationally accepted training and license in aviation, providing them with infinite possibilities for future jobs in practically all fields of the travel market. Having a double degree will guarantee our students several possibilities, and a competitive advantage, to other’s who only have one degree in tourism or a simple pilot license.
