After 11 years in Évora AAE closes operations in Portugal
After 11 years operating in the skies of Évora the Aeronautical Academy of Europe operations come to an end. The Academy was part of the CAE group that now has joined the Oxford Aviation group and the shut down of Évora facility is the result of the new strategy to the new formed group.
Earlier this year AAE already reduced the number of employees to the minimum and since last November that the AFIS of the airfield ceased operation due to the reduction of the AAE workers and this service was provided by the flight academy this service was a very good aid to pilots in an airfield that had a considerable amount of traffic specially student pilots. One thing I am sure is that CAE/Oxford won't get in Brussels Oxford or Amsterdam the same meteorological conditions to fly all year.
