Pan Am International Flight Academy has announced a new business relationship with Flight Experience, owned by Pacific Simulators 2010 Limited, based in Christchurch, New Zealand. The agreement will allow Flight Experience to offer initial Pilot Training through Pan Am, and advanced Type Rating courses at Pan Am facilities to customers planning to pursue a career in aviation.
Gregory Darrow, Pan Am’s Senior Director of Sales and Marketing stated, “We’re excited about this new agreement with Flight Experience. It’s win-win for both companies. Flight Experience will now be able to offer customers interested in pursuing a career in aviation a comprehensive Pilot Training track from zero time to First Officer and a Type Rating — training locally at first at their facility, then moving on for extended training with Pan Am.
“Now a young person who has thought about aviation as a career and wants to know what it’s like flying a big jet can now, not only have Flight Experience as an affordable introduction, but seamlessly transition into a Pilot Training programme conducted by Pan Am to help them achieve their goals.”
Flight Experience will begin offering private seminars and local scholarships to qualified individuals, customers who ‘fly’ one of their simulators then contract to pursue a commercial pilot license. Operating out of twelve locations across eight countries, Flight Experience is in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Singapore, Paris, Kuwait, Bangkok, Hong Kong, and Jakarta.
