Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Wednesday, 26 September 2007

Qantas Group Flight Training and Nippon Cargo Airlines this week signed a five-year contract for Qantas to provide Boeing 747-400 training for up to 200 Nippon Cargo Airlines pilots.

The first intake will commence training in October at the Qantas Group Flight Training facilities in Sydney and at Avalon in Victoria.

"Each pilot will undertake a nine-week course with Qantas instructors in 747-400 simulators and aircraft prior to the Japanese regulator giving final approval," said Qantas Executive General Manager Services, Curtis Davies.

"Qantas Group Flight Training is in negotiations with a number of international carriers to provide simulator endorsement training on a range of aircraft types."

"This new stand-alone flight training business will train more than 3,000 new pilots for the Qantas Group over the next 10 years and a significant number of pilots for other airlines, now including Nippon Cargo Airlines," Mr Davies added.

Qantas Group Flight Training will operate independently of the airline by the end of 2007 with its own profit and loss responsibilities.
