Air India mulling setting up aviation university

DELHI

Government-owned Air India is mulling setting up of an aviation university to cater to the increasing demand for aviation courses particularly for pilots and cabin crew.

Air India already has a near-ready infrastructure and required faculty at its Centre Training Establishment (CTE) in Hyderabad, which can be converted into a full-fledged aviation university by upgrading the existing facility on minimum investment, airline sources told PTI.

Spread over 20 acres of land, the nearly 60-year old premium aviation training institute currently offers courses in all aspects of aviation including for pilots, cabin crew, engineers, aviation security and ground handling among others.

“The demand for aviation professionals in the country is rapidly growing but market is unable to cater to this demand as there are not many facilities, offering such courses under one roof.
