We are the aviation education and training people!

The International Air & Space Training Institute (IASTI®) is a team of experienced professionals committed to educating and training the next generation of aviation professionals. 

We work with aircraft manufacturers, airlines, educators, trainers, and governments to face the global challenges of a shortage of skilled people, environmental sustainability, and keeping ahead of technology.

The IASTI® concept was created by Simon Witts, a 40-year aviation professional with board-level expertise and experience across airlines, engineering, flight testing, certification, operations, education and training.

In a unique 'Collaboration before Competition' approach, IASTI®'s network will span the globe creating a sustainable supply of people from all backgrounds, opening up the industry to those who had no access or connection possibilities.

“I am immensely proud to be leading the industry partners on the IASTI® Stakeholder Board as we launch our scale-up based on the successful UK ‘pilot’. The world needs a sustainable supply of the right people from truly diverse backgrounds, centred on ability and opportunity, and I am confident that we have found the right solution to achieve that. I encourage all of industry to get behind this initiative with its ‘collaboration before competition’ approach"
