The AviationCV.com Pilot Training/Educational Cadet Program and the Line Training Program have already been joined by 9 pilots from Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, the Great Britain and the Netherlands. The programs will not only enable pilots to gain the B737 CL or A320 type of qualification and more than 500 hours of flying experience but will also allow them to enjoy a pilot career in airlines for at least 6 years. Another 200 candidates are waiting for the next screening to begin.
According to Locatory.com, in the next two decades the global MRO revenue should increase from USD 40 to 100 billion. Although today the Asian Pacific region accounts for a fifth of the entire market, the MRO industry in China and India grows by on average 8% per year. Passenger flows have already reached 700 million annually. Therefore, with the expected 11 thousand new aircraft within the next 20 years, the number of air passengers should grow to 2 billion. The number of low cost airlines is expected to increase accordingly (by 50%). However, the optimistic growth scenario is still being clouded by increasing costs attributed to unscheduled aircraft downtimes.
Gediminas Ziemelis, the Chairman of the Board at Avia Solutions Group shares his ideas on how to select the right A320 NEO engine: ’Airlines should take into consideration the following: company’s past and current cooperation experience with engine manufacturers, aircraft fleet phase-in and phase-out plans and general strategy, route network optimization, fuel suppliers, MRO providers and independent engine maintenance experts. Proper combination of these factors will help airlines to achieve the best possible balance between operational reliability, fuel efficiency and exploitation expenses, regardless which type of a new generation engine they choose.’
