On Oc­to­ber 25, 2019, fol­low­ing the Joint Ven­ture agree­ment be­tween Avia Solutions Group and He­nan Civil Avi­a­tion De­vel­op­ment and In­vest­ment Com­pany signed in July, 2019, con­struc­tion of BAA Train­ing China, a mod­ern six full-flight sim­u­la­tor avi­a­tion train­ing cen­tre com­menced. The train­ing cen­tre is sched­uled to be func­tional in the sec­ond half of 2020 and will be de­signed to pro­vide 40,000 flight hours per year and train ap­prox­i­mately 4,000 pi­lots. As avi­a­tion ex­perts pre­dict, Asia Pa­cific area de­mand for new com­mer­cial pi­lots will ac­count for 38 per cent of the global de­mand with more than half of it for the mar­ket in China. Boe­ing has just re­cently up­dated their fore­cast for the up­com­ing twenty years, stat­ing that Chi­nese car­ri­ers will need 8,090 new planes till 2038, which ex­ceeds the pre­vi­ously pre­dicted fig­ure by 5.2 per cent.

With the land plot of al­most five hectares cho­sen in Zhengzhou Air­port Eco­nomic Zone (ZAEZ) the com­pa­nies are to build a state-of-art train­ing fa­cil­i­ties of al­most 5,000 square me­ters ac­com­mo­dat­ing six Air­bus and Boe­ing fam­ily full-flight sim­u­la­tors, train­ing de­vices, mod­ern class­rooms and lux­ury lounge zone. Strate­gi­cally lo­cated in Zhengzhou Air­port Eco­nomic Zone, the train­ing cen­tre will be 15 min­utes’ drive from the Zhengzhou Air­port, al­low­ing pi­lots to cut down on time spent trav­el­ling for train­ing. The well-de­vel­oped in­fra­struc­ture is ready to fulfil not only the tech­ni­cal needs for the train­ing cen­tre es­tab­lish­ment, but also the fu­ture de­vel­op­ment projects. Not only we are ea­ger to en­ter China’s avi­a­tion train­ing mar­ket, but also work on syn­er­gies with lo­cal govern­ment and part­ners in or­der to con­trib­ute to the He­nan avi­a­tion mar­ket de­vel­op­ment projects”, shares Egle Vaitke­vi­ciute, BAA Train­ing CEO.
