Who are we?
Where aviation meets human potential. Being AAP means redefining excellence in the aviation industry by embodying a people-centric approach.
At AAP Aviation, we specialize in recruitment, total crew management, and operations support, providing a seamless experience for both our clients and their passengers. But beyond the ordinary, we strive to create a lasting impact from a people's perspective.
Embracing the digital-driven era, we understand the values and aspirations of our future generations. With that mindset, we collaborate closely with our flight school Pilot Flight Academy. Designed with the young aviators in mind, we want to foster their passion for flying and equip aspiring pilots with the skills needed to soar to new heights.
But our commitment doesn't end there. We are also involved in sustainability innovations, an integral part of the aviation industry's future. Through our project for electric regional air mobility, we aim to reduce our carbon footprint making the blue skies “greener”.
Discover limitless possibilities, fueled by our dedication to people, passion, and the planet. Together, let's redefine the future of aviation.
After a fantastic career in aviation and achieving his goal as a Captain and Chief Flight Instructor in SAS, Espen Høiby felt the call to look for new horizons – this time on the ground.
Inspired by the achievements of OSM Maritime Group – a leading global provider of Crew Management Services for the maritime and offshore industry – Espen teamed with Bjørn Tore Larsen, OSM Maritime Group’s founder, and founded AAP Aviation.
AAP Aviation entered the market in 2013, with a wish to renew the aviation industry, by introducing a new business model of how to attract, employ, and manage crews as a long-term and responsible employer.
AAP Aviation has in record time grown from zero to over 5000 employees and today we have several regional and international airlines on our customer list.
We have also entered into close cooperation with a number of international organizations and acquired a network of flight schools, to ensure a robust pipeline of future talent.
AAP Aviation is unique – we are the first company to offer total crew management, a full range of services including employment and management of both flight deck and cabin crew. We are responsible for the entire crew management process.
Our services include Crew Management, Recruitment, Training, Planning, and Scheduling.
The AAP DNA
Our values are the cornerstones in our daily work. Every decision and face-to-face meeting with people around the world should reflect the AAP Aviation values.
Our shared values of responsibility, team orientation, friendliness and always being on serve as ingrained principles that are meant to drive our behavior and signify how we interact with our peers and do business.
This is what defines "the AAP DNA" and professional business culture.
AAP Aviation operates within the aviation industry, which is responsible for up to 3 % of the world’s annual CO2 emissions (2016 figures). Even though AAP Aviation does not have any aircraft operations, this does not free us from the responsibility to contribute to reducing the industry’s strain on the environment.
