CTC Aviation flies into the US

CTC Aviation, a UK-headquartered airline pilot training company, yesterday announced plans to expand in the US, opening a new crew training centre in Phoenix, Arizona. The firm, which was listed in the Sunday Times’ list of fastest growing UK private companies, is investing $7m in the move, which it says will expose it to the world’s biggest commercial aviation market. The company trains approximately 2,000 aircrew for more than 50 global airlines each year.
