US pilot institute plans more tie-ups, expansion

The American School of Aviation, a US-based pilot training institute, has firmed up plans for major expansion and diversification in the country, which includes air-taxi operations, a pilot training school and tie-ups with domestic airlines such as Jet Airways.

Ms Reny Kozman, Vice-President, ASA, US, told Business Line: “We propose to start our flight school in India by mid-2008 so that we need not take the students to the US to train them.” It is estimated that there is a need for about 5,000 pilots in the next five-seven years.

She was here to attend a seminar organised by ASA India’s Hyderabad office.
