Hello Folks! Welcome to Our Blog.

Bhanu Choudhrie, the founder and executive director of C&C Alpha Group and also the Alpha Aviation Group (AAG) which he formed in 2006 to develop more cost-effective means of educating pilots for budget airlines by giving commercial airline pilots with simulator training. Though the airline industry is infamously slow to change, the world-wide COVID-19 pandemic is forcing it to adapt far more quickly than usual and AAG has led this revolution, including a digital-first, simulator-driven approach to commercial pilot training.

Budget airlines typically lack the financial resources of big carriers to build their own extensive training programs, thus they must contract out much of their training. When industry regulators authorized Multi-Pilot Licensing (MPL), AAG was one of the first training companies to provide it. MPL uses simulators more than traditional training, significantly cutting in-flight training time from 230 hours to 70 hours.

AAG’s training method increases safety standards for new pilots by introducing them to the passenger planes they will be flying early in their training. This necessitated Bhanu Choudhrie’s team investing substantially in-flight simulators, and they now handle 11 of them, the latest of which is an Airbus A320 2.0 simulator in use in the Philippines. To date, Bhanu Choudhrie and AAG have trained over 1700 pilots across Asia, with cadets from more than 40 nations enrolling in AAG’s programs.

Bhanu Choudhrie intends to make modifications to pilot training that would make it more accessible to people in distant areas. On these and other concerns, AAG has been working with government authorities to ensure that they are addressed after the original crises have passed. Despite the inevitable failures, Bhanu Choudhrie believes that the aviation sector would gain immensely from these improvements in the long term.
