Indonesia airline flag carriers years by year increasing fast. Now in Indonesia have more than 5 players in this sector which each player have more than 5 airplanes to serve both domestic and international route. Hiring international pilots are not best option for long term. Meanwhile sending the local students to foreign to acquired skill and license to piloting a certain type of aircrafts are quite expensive. To solve this problem, Indonesia minister of transportation allocate some national budget to build national pilot academic to answer the demand in the future.
Most of our pilots are acquiring pilot license skill in Australia which cost to USD 100,000 to complete study. The domestic academic will just only cost 50% cheaper than study in Australia with the same level of skill. The turbobrop jet trainers for the flight academic will be completely delivered by this end of this year. Is Cessna trainer turboprop light airplane were chosen to fill the academic airfield. Cessna is the private jet manufacturer in the United States of America.
About the end of this year, 2 more new flag carriers will set to launch. Both are low cost carrier airlines. Meanwhile just about few weeks ago, Indonesia vice president, Jusuf Kalla has been attended to celebrate the new open domestic airport in Makassar. The Airport is Hassanuddin. Hoping the airport could serve better domestic passenger which has been increasing up to almost 90% from total passengers in Indonesia.
Academy Location : Letkol Wisnu Airport, Gerokgak district of Buleleng, North Bali.
I will put in the contact person as soon as the school is ready to launch lately this year. Just be patient.
