Miami Nov. 28, 2012 — Flight International, a global aerospace weekly publication produced in the UK, has recently produced a special interactive on-line “iMagazine” entitled: Aviation Training 2012, offering an in-depth look at current commercial aviation training practices, challenges, and issues facing airlines today.  The interactive publication also highlights Pan Am International Flight Academy, a world leader in training with headquarters in Miami Florida, and is the fourth in a series of specialized interactive magazines the publisher has produced since 2011.
 
Founded in 1909, Flight International is the world's oldest continuously published aviation news magazine with a team of journalists and correspondents around the world. It provides global coverage of aerospace manufacturing and aviation operations in the areas of air transport, business aviation, defense, general aviation and space-flight.

Our iMagazine format is unique in that readers have the on-line experience of reading substantial articles, streaming compelling video, and browsing dynamic hot links to extended the content in a very engaging and informative way.”

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.

The Chinese delegation consisted of the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC); Air China, China’s largest private airline; China Eastern Airlines; China Southern Airlines; OK Airlines; Aviation Industry Corporation of China, a state-owned aerospace and defense company employing over a half million people; COMAC, a Chinese aircraft manufacturer; and maintenance and repair companies AMECO and GAMECO.
 
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.”

 A scheduled stop during the 12-day mission included the China Air Show in Zhuhai China, endorsed by the Chinese central government, with 600 companies from 35 countries worldwide and more than 100,000 visitors. Delegates were honored to attend a special reception held at the show for the trade mission by US Ambassador to China, Gary Locke and U.S. Minister for Commercial Affairs to China, Mr. William Zarit.
 
Pan Am, one of only ten U.S. companies invited to participate, has the largest, most diverse fleet of full-motion jet simulators in the world, including the B737-300, B737NG, B747-400, B767-300, B777, and A320 for immediate training in Asia. They specialize in Type Rating Training for most international civil authorities, Airline Crew Training, Cabin Crew and Safety Training, Dispatcher Training, Aircraft Maintenance Training, ATC Training, and Aviation English Training.
 
The next scheduled cooperative aviation trade mission between the two countries is expected to be held sometime during the next year.
