Bhanu Choudhrie, a career investor and entrepreneur, is turning his attention to disrupting the aviation industry. His bread and butter has been guiding investments in emerging markets as the executive director of the C&C Alpha Group. Now he heads up Alpha Aviation Group (AAG) and he sees an opportunity in aviation training.
Airlines Needs Trained Pilots, Quick
Airlines are trying to grow their fleets and routes. But there’s a problem. Many seasoned pilots are retiring. Traditionally, airlines would recruit pilots after they had finished a five-year training program. But that model might not be the way forward, especially for budget airlines. Bhanu Choudhrie’s Alpha Aviation Group offers two-year training on high tech simulators to get pilots in cockpits sooner.
The training is efficient and cost-effective. Pilots train intensively in the simulated cockpits of actual commercial airliners. They don’t have to spend hours flying in small or small or outdated planes. The training ends up being safe, effective, and affordable for smaller airlines trying to grow.
Alpha Aviation Group also specializes in recruiting under-represented students to become pilots, such as women. The aviation schools are in different parts of Asia, from the Philippines to United Arab Emirates. Being open to a bigger talent pool means AAG can meet the demand for pilots that the airlines need.
Bhanu Choudhrie is happy to be a long-term partner to smaller airlines trying to build into something bigger. He sees updated pilot training as a critical tool to be used by budget airlines that need to keep pace with new technologies. More pilots mean more flights and more access to remote locations of the globe. Bhanu Choudhrie sees the potential out there in the skies and wants to lead the way to know more click here.
