Miami Oct. 29, 2012  — Pan Am International Flight Academy recently completed a successful exhibition as a key exhibitor and presenter at CAATS in Sanya, China, the Civil Aviation Administration of China’s first Ab-Initio Training Symposium.

The CAATS Summit experienced a crowd of over 300 key aviation professionals and airline executives, as well as senior CAAC officials who addressed China’s exploding demand for trained pilots and the need for fast development of reliable flight training programs and facilities. Although meeting the demands for well-trained pilots is a global issue, there is a particular urgency in meeting China’s internal needs.

Pan Am International Flight Academy participated in the Summit as one of a handful of training academies with CAAC Certification, providing training to the region through their training partner, Panda Fight Academy in Tokyo, Japan.

Mr. Gregory Darrow, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing for Pan Am was in attendance, and summarized: “ There was an huge amount of energy and anticipation for this show, organized by the Chinese who are very committed to increase their capacity to field qualified pilots and meet their demands. We are pleased that Pan Am was received so enthusiastically because of our training options and capabilities in the region.”   

The company received strong attention from Asian carriers interested in their core competencies and Asian training solutions including CAAC Type Rating programs, Airline Crew Training, Cabin Crew, Dispatcher, Aircraft Maintenance, ATC, and Aviation English Training.  In addition, the training academy has the most diverse fleet of full-motion simulators in the world, and offers B737-300, B737NG, B747-400, B767-300, B777, and A320 full-motion simulators for booking immediately in Tokyo.

Pan Am owns and operates training facilities throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia, offering a comprehensive list of customized training programs—and traces its training heritage to the earliest days of aviation.

Oct. 4, 2011– MIAMI  "What a great night for all of us Pan Amers and Pan Am kids!  I have been a news reporter and anchor in South Florida for 13 years, but it took the premiere of the new t.v. series "Pan Am" to bring me to the Pan Am Flight Academy for the first time!  What a perfect setting to share a trip back in time through the new show.

So many donned their original Pan Am uniforms.  I couldn't believe their hats and gloves were still in perfect condition as if they could pass inspection at that moment!  The funniest moment came after the first commercial break in the show.  The scene showed a stewardess popping champagne and stealing a quick sip before placing it in the ice cooler.  A whole group of ladies in the audience just howled in laughter, saying "Oh my gosh!  We used to do that!".

The only thing that would have made the night better, would have been to share it with my step-father, Captain John Harris.  He was chief pilot out of JFK Airport in the early '80s, and he literally showed me the world — Clipper Class!  John passed away a year ago this week after a long battle with prostate cancer, but he leaves me with endless memories of those great coupon books where we could write our own ticket; travelling with fellow Pan Amers who always knew the best places to shop and eat; and dressing up to travel because it was something to be appreciated and respected.

I will always feel blessed to have been a small part of the Pan Am family."
