2019 saw the 10th Anniversary of the Alpha Aviation Academy that is providing training to pilots in the Philippines. This milestone is an important one for the leading MultiCrew Pilot License system in the Middle East. The company is a subsidiary of C&C Alpha Group which was first founded in 2001 by the native of India Bhanu Choudhrie. Over the years, he has become an expert in the world of aviation and he plans on growing the company even more in the future in order to build recognition of their name. Bhanu Choudhrie considers diversity important through his many business and investment ventures and this is especially true When it comes to Alpha Aviation Academy. The outreach program of the pilot school hopes to enroll students from 65 different countries, including more women.
Currently, Bhanu Choudhrie serves C&C Alpha Group as their Director and he is also a leading philanthropist in London. Throughout the years, he has gained a lot of recognition for his different accomplishments. He obtained an International Marketing and Business degree from Boston University and later attended Harvard studying management techniques. When Bhanu Choudhrie began investing in aviation, he knew that there would be a greater need for licensed pilots as the demand for airline travel increased. It was a considerable challenge to take on, but the new concept managed to pay off and it jumpstarted the aviation industry in India after it had been facing issues due to the economic depression that caused a jump in oil prices.
In order to ensure that there would be positions for available for the people graduating from the pilot program, Bhanu Choudhrie made partnerships with Boeing, Airbus, Cebu Specific, Jet Airways, and other airlines that need qualified pilots. The aviation school has an extensive outreach program designed to break down the barriers of diversity and gender in the aviation industry. Out of all of the commercial pilots flying today, only around 3% of them happen to be women. Dozens of women have already graduated from their programs and they are working to increase the percentage of women in the industry.
