Urbe Aero

Our history

Urbe Aero was born in Sabaudia (near Rome) as Diamond Aero – exclusive agent of Diamond Aircraft Industries (DAI) – back in 2003.

The company has evolved rapidly in their over 20 years of life in the aviation market.

In 2009, Domenico and Pasquale Calia’s business intuition made them decide to broaden their services, offering training to pilots and maintenance service for their aircraft and third party aircraft.

The company’s strategic location – in Rome Urbe airport – and the licence achieved from ENAC – The Italian Civil Aviation Authority – allowed Diamond Aero to start working as an ATO.

This is how Urbe Aero Flight Academy – one of the most important flight schools in Italy and Southern Europe with over 10 years of experience – was born.

Not only training, but also technical support and maintenance.

Thanks to its affiliated company Urbe Aero GmbH – with its headquarters located in Vienna and many centres around Europe – the school has now become the main reference point for the maintenance of aircraft all around Europe.

Nowadays, Urbe Aero stands for excellence, reliability and professionalism.

The school offers top quality training to its students. Pilots who got their licence and training in Urbe Aero ATO definitely stand out in the aviation market.

The school’s international credibility has made airline companies themselves request our newly trained pilots, since they are aware of the high standards achieved through our training.
