CTC developing Indian training programme

Flight training company CTC has announced that it will be developing an airline pilot training programme exclusively for Indian students.

CTC’s CEO Rob Clarke, who is currently accompanying David Cameron on his market trip to India, said: “We are actively engaged with a number of Indian airlines to launch an airline pilot training course that is tailored to suit their specific needs and we have secured agreement from at least one Indian airline to consider these pilots post the training.”

The company plans to commence marketing and selection for the initial intake of ten Indian nationals during the first quarter of 2013. Successful candidates will train at CTC’s facilities in the United Kingdom and New Zealand.

The training provider is also developing a pilot retraining program for unemployed pilots in India.
