Save money with outsourced flight crew training without compromising safety.

Flight Training International, a leading flight training center, announced today its silver sponsorship of WATS 2012, World Aviation Conference and Trade Show, on April 17-19. This event hosts an impressive cast of training and simulator experts at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, Orlando, Florida.

“We agree with WATS, this is the best place to position and align our branding with the most recognized individuals in the aviation industry. We are looking forward to the networking opportunities with colleagues, customers, and developing new relationships,” said Mike Medley, co-owner of Flight Training International.

With over 900 aviation colleagues, including the top decision makers and executives from more than 40 countries and 350 companies, the WATS 2012 show is the largest annual event for aviation training professionals to meet and discuss the latest industry trends.

“This event provides a conduit to powerful conversations and business development in advance of potentially unprecedented expansion in the aviation training industry,” said George Smith co-owner Flight Training International.

“Overseas regulators are also looking for schools to partner with, because in many countries, the airline sector and its development is seen as a national economic asset and enabler. A lack of airline personnel threatens that development,” Andy Smith, Publisher Civil Aviation Training magazine.

Flight Training Internationals’ sponsorship aims to touch on how global growth and competition is dramatically affecting aircrew training departments around the world. How operators manage new safety regulations, recruitment demand, and aircrew training while controlling costs will be a major topic at this year’s WATS conference. As a sliver sponsor, Flight Training International’s primary message, “Save money with outsourced flight crew training without compromising safety,” will reach audiences not just at the show, but it extends to pre and post event promotions and to the event website, which has just passed its millionth page download. It will also be featured in the global database of CAT magazine with its readership of about 70k per copy.

“At the moment, the airline industry has an almost unbelievable safety record-our aim and that of everyone at the event is to help keep it that way,” said Andy Smith.

“We work with industry leaders who have recognized that taking their in-house training and outsourcing some or all of it is an overall effective solution. This allows them to efficiently use their existing workforce to focus on their core competencies as operators in a global market without compromising safety,” said Medley.
