Late last year, Moorabbin Aviation Services (TA Australian National Airline College) entered into a contract with China Southern Airlines to train its Airline cadet students at Mangalore Airport, just over an hour north of Melbourne.
We received our Chinese Civil Aviation Authority (CAAC) approval and commenced training cadets from ab initio right through to Commercial Pilot Licence, Multi Engine Instrument Rating and High performance Aircraft training on our twin turbo prop King Air’s.
We are very excited to be working with and training for China Southern Airlines. Based in Guangzhou and with a fleet of 545 aircraft, its is the world’s sixth largest airline measured by passengers carried and Asia’s largest airline in fleet size, revenue and passengers carried. China Southern operates more than 2,000 flights to 208 destinations daily.
Our Mangalore campus provides a great training ground with plenty of good weather and easy access to Melbourne. Our cadet students stay at the nearby town of Seymour, just 15 minutes away.
We appreciate the opportunity to bring our expertise to China Southern and to be training the Airline Captains of the future.
