Asia looks to ramp up training to head off predicted pilot shortage. Currently, all the forecasts about the future of Asian aviation are exceptional, except for one -the forecast that Asia will need 253,000 new pilots between now and 2036. Simply put, there are not enough currently being trained to fill all those cockpit seats as contributor Michael Doran explains.
Alsim has been developing and manufacturing FAA & EASA certified FNPT II, FNPT II MCC and AATD flight simulators since 1994. One of their most recent installations was an Alsim ALX for Aeronav Academy based at Lanseria.
