Cebu Pacific, Canadian firm to put up aviation training center in Clark

by Carlo Lorenzo J. Datu

CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga, Jan 17 (PIA) -- Budget carrier Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) recently signed a joint venture agreement with Canadian firm CAE for the establishment of an aviation training center inside Clark Freeport.

In a statement, CEB president and chief executive officer Lance Gokongwei disclosed, “the aviation academy is scheduled to start operations by the third quarter of 2012 with joint investments from $40 million to $50 million.”

It will initially cater to Airbus A319/320/321 series pilot type-rating training requirements and provide “wet” instructor-led type-rating training for CEB’s current and newly hired pilots.

Initial, recurrent, conversion, and jet indoctrination training will be available to other Airbus operators.

The state-of-the-art training center will be developed in consultation with CAE’s training facilities design team and will primarily be equipped with two Airbus A320 FFSs with capability to expand by two additional simulators.

Gokongwei added that, “the school will help enhance the Philippines’ tourism and aviation potentials by producing world-class pilots as well as contribute in the vibrant aviation industry of the Asia-Pacific region.”

Apart from pilots, the academy is also set to train other aviation personnel such as cabin crew in the future. (WLB/CLJD-PIA 3)
