Exclusive Training Contract With Korean Airlines
Pan Am International
Flight Academy' Career Pilot division (PAIFA) has been awarded an
exclusive contract to provide comprehensive, airline-oriented
training to Korean Airlines (KAL). Training will be conducted at
PAIFA's Livermore (CA) training center, and will utilize the
Academy's fleet of Piper Seminole, Arrow and Archer aircraft. An
estimated 60 KAL students will train with PAIFA this year. Since
2001, the Academy has (also) been the exclusive primary flight
training provider to KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
"The Academy takes a unique approach to primary flight training,
because we indoctrinate students with an 'airline mentality' right
from the start. Our training process is intense, and continually
emphasizes the need for discipline, professionalism and
accountability," said Chuck Glass, Vice President and Executive
Director of the Academy's Career Pilot division.
The Academy operates training facilities in Miami, Orlando, Fort
Pierce and Vero Beach (FL); Cincinnati (OH); Memphis (TN); Dulles,
(VA); St. Louis (MO); Minneapolis (MN); Phoenix and Scottsdale
(AZ); Beaver Falls (PA); and Livermore (CA). Its Commercial and
