The aviation sector in the UAE and Asia is one industry that C&C Alpha has made massive investments in. Recently the UAE Aviation School Alpha Aviation Academy a subsidiary company of the C&C Alpha Group of Companies celebrated its tenth anniversary. The Aviation school is a leading pilot training academy in the whole of the Middle East region. The anniversary ceremony was held at Sharjah, UAE where the Academy is based. Alpha Aviation academy boasts of having trained more than 600 cadets in the ten years that it has been operational. Cadets from the school are highly qualified, and once they graduate, they secure piloting positions in Airbus A320 types of planes as second cadre officers.
The Academy lately has been focusing on empowering women in the aviation sector. There is only 3 percent of women commercial pilots in the whole world, something that Alpha Aviation Academy wants to change by allowing more women to study aviation. Currently, 20 women are undergoing cadets training at Alpha Aviation Schools, and more than 25 have already graduated from AAA school. The firm, besides empowering women, is seeking to encourage more professionals to join the aviation sector. The firm in a move to encourage more workers from different professions to enter the industry has raised the minimum age of training cadets for the MPL licenses from 33 years to 35 years.
During the event keynote speakers such as Bhanu Choudhrie had the opportunity to speak to the guests.
