Addressing the Pilot Shortage in Southeast Asia

Since 2006, Bhanu Choudhrie has been training pilots through Alpha Aviation Group Ltd. However, this was not the first time he invested in aviation. Before starting the aviation centers in the UAE and Philippines, he was operating Deccan Air. He bought the airline in 2003 when they only operate a few flights every day. Three years down the line, the airline was operating more than 200 flights every day. In a year, they would fly up to seven million passengers. Bhanu Choudhrie started Alpha Aviation Group Ltd to meet the rising demand for pilots in the Southeast Asia. According to him, the world would need close to half a million more pilots by 2026. He notes that the demand for pilots was brought about by the increase in the number of people in the middle class. As more people seek affordable air travel, the airlines must increase their flights every day and with that the number of pilots.

For many years, Bhanu Choudhrie has been able to observe and take advantage of trends. In the aviation industry, he notes that economic growth in developing countries has been steady. According to him, it will require a significant investment to transport people and goods from one country to another. For Alpha Aviation Group Ltd, they hope to take advantage of the retirement of baby boomers in the US and other regions to supply pilots.

In their training centers, they offer training that ensures their pilots are experienced enough to handle the most challenging situations. To ensure that the schools meet this need and that the business brings success, he works with a strong management team. Today, the pilot training school works with airlines, such as Cebu Pacific, VietJet Air, Air Arabia, and Philippine Airlines. By 2020, they had produced more than 350 pilots and placed them with the airlines above.
