Airbus has announced that it has opened a training center for commercial pilots and maintenance engineers in India’s National Capital Region of Delhi. In an announcement, the aircraft manufacturer said that the opening of the center is part of its move to foster and nourish India’s civil aviation sector.

“Airbus forecast a need for more than 25,000 new pilots in India over the next 20 years to keep pace with the current double-digit growth in its commercial aviation industry,” it stated.

The center features an A320 flight simulator plus various training modules, programs and courses.

Of particular note is the new facility’s ‘Upgrade to Command’ module, which is intended to enhance the skill-set and maturity of co-pilots. It is hoped that the center will be a complementary addition to Airbus India’s current training center, which is located in Bengaluru.

Offering his comments, Anand E. Stanley, president and managing director, Airbus India & South Asia, said, “Providing a robust training infrastructure to support our customers’ businesses is a priority for us. One pillar of our customer services mission is proximity to the customer, and another one is safety. In that respect, having a training center located in the country is proof of our commitment towards both.”

Michael Chemouny, head of training services, Airbus commercial aircraft, was equally enthusiastic in his comments.

“The new training center in India is part of our worldwide development plan to address the growing demand for pilots. Over 500,000 new pilots will be required worldwide over the next 20 years. Our increasing footprint also aims at providing service closer to airline customers.”
