Seminar in Papua New Guinea

Seminar in Port Moresby and Lae, Papua New Guinea

Seminar in Port Moresby and Lae, Papua New Guinea (Pilot school)

Al Asia Aviation Academy, a flight school in the Philippines had the seminar in Port Moresby and Lae, Papua New Guinea in June 2014.
It was the second time to open the seminar in Papua New Guinea.
The event was held at Airways hotel in Port Moresby on 21st and 22nd June and at Lae international hotel on 23rd and 24th June.

We believe the pilot demand in PNG is quite high. The good example would be Air Niugini, a national flag airline in PNG.
It lowered the requirement for pilot applicants and is now open to new pilots who just completed training in a pilot school and have commercial pilot license with instrument rating.
Besides, currently the most of current pilots in PNG are foreign pilot.
The country itself is likely to prioritize its local pilots.
That is why we believe our PNG pilot cadets are able to get hired as soon as they complete the training with us just like one of our alumni, Terry who went back to PNG lately. He is now hired and being trained for Fokker.

As PNG needs a number of pilots because of its geography with all the mountains, every time the academy has the seminar, there are many participants who are highly interested in taking a pilot training.

This time, approximately 200 participants attended, seeking for an opportunity to be a pilot.

We are aiming to recruit more PNG pilot cadets, produce local pilots and contribute to Papua New Guinea.
This is our mission as a flight school.
