Miami Nov. 27, 2012 — The U.S. Department of Commerce declared their recent Aviation Trade Mission with the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC), held the first two weeks of November, to be “successful on all fronts.” The group met in five major Chinese cities including Shanghai, Guangzhou, Zhuhai, Beijing, and Hong Kong.
 
U.S. delegation members, including Pan Am International Flight Academy, a world leader in aviation training, held prescreened one-on-one meetings and networking sessions with Chinese partners and key aviation decision-makers from the Chinese government and industry with a common goal to promote business between U.S. commercial aviation and Chinese airlines and manufacturers struggling to keep pace with China’s rapid growth. China is the world’s fastest growing civil aviation sector and is expected to add 5,000 new aircraft valued at $600 billion over the next 20 years.

China’s commercial aviation opportunities exist in multiple sectors, including tier one suppliers, niche‐parts manufacturing, airport design/construction, pilot and mechanic training and general aviation.
 
Gregory Darrow, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing of Pan Am International Flight Academy expressed his satisfaction with the trade mission and his company’s participation this way: “We’ve been in this business a long time and been involved in a lot of global business, starting with Pan Am’s contributions in bringing international travel to the world in the early days…but to be asked by the U.S. Department of Commerce to represent the best in American aviation training and safety procedures was a real honor. This opportunity, has in effect, solidified our relationship with many of the key decision-makers and airlines there. We see China as a tremendous opportunity for us and we were thrilled to have participated.”

We are pleased that Pan Am has been invited to participate in this trade mission and has been so enthusiastically welcomed for our training options and capabilities in the region.”
