Lufthansa Flight Training and CTC Aviation engage in new training alliance in Phoenix, Arizona
UK-based flight training provider CTC Aviation Group (CTC Aviation) is using the infrastructure of the Airline Training Center Arizona (ATCA), a 100% subsidiary of Lufthansa Flight Training GmbH, so it can also train future pilots in North America as of April 2014. A corresponding cooperation agreement was signed by both companies in November 2013. CTC Aviation will initially station a fleet of eleven new training aircraft in Phoenix, while ATCA will support its new cooperation partner with flight instructors, planning and dispatch services, trainee accommodation, and office space. In addition, ATCA will take on the maintenance of the CTC Aviation aircraft fleet. CTC Aviation’s first trainee pilots will start their flight training in Phoenix in April 2014.
