Global Pilot Training Groups Expands – Opens Location in India

22nd Mar 2022

Global aviation education & training provider Airways Aviation Academy (AAA) will commence delivering its world class Pilot Foundation Courses as part of their Commercial Pilot Pathway Program in New Delhi from April 18th, 2022.

Industry leaders, students and parents are invited to join the opening ceremony followed by a series of seminars in New Delhi on March 28th, 2022.

Qualifying students will have the opportunity to join a bespoke program that delivers both a Bachelors Degree in Business along with their Commercial Pilot License (EASA fATPL or CASA CPL) conducted in English in conjunction with University Partners – Montpellier Business School (MBS) in France and either Griffith University or Southern Cross University in Australia.

“The Airways Aviation Foundation Course is the perfect option for aspiring aviators interested in beginning their studies close to home. Students will experience a tailored curriculum that has been developed by industry professionals to provide a meaningful introduction into the theoretical and practical aspects of aviation. Students will be assisted through those first critical steps and gain the knowledge required to progress, with confidence, to the practical full flight training phase.

We live in an age where we see the Indian community taking on an ever expanding socio-economic role as well as a rapidly growing physical presence on the world stage and after years of relatively slow starts, the recognition by the Indian Government of the need to direct substantial investment into essential infrastructure has provided a welcome shot in the arm for the Indian aviation industry.

We are now finally seeing the political and business consensus that recognises the unique solution that the aviation sector plays in the development of both the domestic as well as international economy and importantly (in recent times at least) we have also started to witness the build-up of development activity at leading airports as a result of a much more supportive policy framework.

These policy changes have given the positive push needed to allow the aviation industry to continue to spread its wings and play the critical role in helping the development & growth of the business and travel network. Aviation is critical in the development of any modern, vibrant society and an efficient, well managed aviation sector in India can only help in bettering the lives of its citizens generally.

The UDAN scheme aims to develop 100 airports by 2024 and invest approximately $1.83 billion in developing airport infrastructure.
India forecasts chronic pilot shortages over the coming years and as the country’s middle class rapidly rises, airfares become more affordable and the healthy competition amongst airlines burgeons, the market and demand for well educated and well trained commercial pilots with the right kind of license will only increase.

“The Arabian Gulf and South East Asian aviation sectors all forecast extraordinary growth over the next 20 years and holding the right kind of Commercial Pilot License from the outset opens a multitude of career pathway possibilities as well as opening the door to global citizenship. Subject to individual employment considerations, one must consider that airlines across, the Sub-continent, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, South East Asia and Australasia will readily prefer, sponsor and employ EASA and CASA License holders over most ICAO license holders. This provides Indian graduates a very broad base of future employment opportunities as a First Officer or Captain. An FAA License also presents opportunities but far less in the context of the territories just mentioned. ” said Romy Hawatt, Founder and Chairman of the Airways Aviation Group.”
