Airworks Aviation Academy participated in the 5th China Aviation Training & Education (CATES) Summit 2015 (April 9-10) held at Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, in Shanghai, China.

With the rapid growth of China civil aviation industry, the shortage of aviation pilots becomes a major obstacle that hindering the industry development. According to data released, the number of pilots in the country rose 13% last year, but China still faces a potential shortfall of about 1,000 pilots a year. Analysts estimate the expanding aviation industry will need 3,000 pilots a year as air travel expands, but schools are so far producing only about 2,000.

Airworks Aviation Academy is looking forward to working with Chinese airlines /partners in meeting the huge demand for world-class flight training and English-proficient pilots in China.
