Airbus Boosts Indian Facilities

Airbus has opened a new training centre in India for commercial pilots and maintenance engineers to support the rapid growth of the nation’s civil aviation industry.

The manufacturer is forecasting a requirement for 25,000 new pilots in India alone over the next 20 years if airlines are to keep pace with the double-digit growth the civil aviation sector is currently experiencing. The new facility, in the National Capital Region of Delhi, will complement Airbus India’s other centre in Bengaluru which has taught more than 4,500 maintenance engineers since it opened in 2007. The new centre incorporates a full-flight A320 simulator as well as programmes on aircraft procedure training, computerbased classroom teaching, standard pilot transition instruction, including an upgrade to command course aimed at improving the skills and maturity of co-pilots as they transition to the lefthand seat.
