LIFT®, or Lombok Institute of Flight Technology®, is located in Selaparang International Airport on the island of Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. LIFT, which commenced operations in November of 2010, is a fresh and exciting professional flight training academy. It is our mission to provide the highest quality professional flight training programs for both domestic and international students through the utilization of modern aircraft, avionics and flight simulation facilities.
Our training facilities in Lombok are built to a high international standard, equipped with multiple classrooms, briefing rooms, projector and lecture halls, self-study rooms, dining rooms and dispatch offices. We do not "cut corners" when it comes to the comfort and optimal learning/work ing environment of our students and instructors.
LIFT also operates a large 3-storey office building in Tangerang - Jakarta district. This office is primarily used for LIFT student/instructor enrollment procedures, student selection days, flight support services and other cental administrative tasks.
In order to maintain a high level of flight training standards, akin to those upheld by the FAA , CASA (NAA) and the EASA, we aim to employ only high calibre international aviation professionals with solid experience in taking flight students from zero hours to ATPL licensing level. Most of our flight instructors are multilingual pilots with multiple-authority licenses (such as DGCA, FAA and EASA). Most also posess an ATPL, a university degree and all flight instructor ratings (CFI/CFII/MEI). A clean safety record is a must for all our FIs and we strive to maintain one of the highest standards of flight training safety in Indonesia through the employment of competent flight and ground personnel.
Why are we different from anyone else?
