Commercial pilots to be trained in Vietnam
The Vietnam Airlines Corp. and the Bay Viet (Viet Flight) Flight Training Joint Stock Company have made a deal to train 60 pilots in Vietnam during the 2010-2012 period.

Under the contract, signed in Ho Chi Minh City on October 14, every 72-week training course will be held in Vietnam and France, each with 20 trainees. The training courses will be completed by the end of 2012.

Vietnam Airlines estimates it will need at least 636 pilots by 2010, 60 percent of them Vietnamese. To raise the rate of Vietnamese pilots to 75 percent by 2015, the carrier plans to recruit at least 100 extra pilots a year to raise the number of pilots by 10 percent during 2011-2020.

The Chairman of Vietnam Airlines Corp Nguyen Sy Hung said that the contract with Bay Viet, the first pilot training centre in Vietnam to have an Air Transport Pilots Licence (ATPL), will help the airline to take the initiative and train its own pilots, cutting costs and raising efficiency.

The deal also proves the airline’s commitment to its domestic partners to implement its strategy on personnel development to ensure sustainable growth and fulfill its plans to develop the country’s aviation industry.

Bay Viet’s General Director Nguyen Nam Lien, said the company will start four other pilots courses for other airlines in Vietnam and around the region in 2010 and 2011.

In the first phase, Bay Viet will work with Vietnam’s Aviation Academy and provide flight training at Cam Ranh Airport in Nha Trang.
