A new partnership between Keilir and Embry Riddle Aeronautical University

We were delighted to learn that Keilir and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University signed a cooperation agreement that strengthens each other’s pilot training. According to the announcement, Embry-Riddle has been called "The Harvard of the Sky" and has a history dating back to the early days of aviation making it the world's oldest, largest, and most prestigious university specializing in aviation and aerospace. It is the only fully accredited aviation-oriented university in the world. This is a great fit for Keilir’s Aviation Academy which is also known for having a highly experienced staff of airline pilots and instructors along with excellent affordable housing and brand new Diamond DA20, DA40 and DA42 aircraft. Another excellent example of the broad range of partnerships between Iceland and the United States.
