AP’s first pilot training centre to come up soon near Kurnool Airport
Andhra Pradesh will soon have its own pilot training centre at the Orvakal Airport near Kurnool. Three private companies including Wings Aviation and Star Aviation are showing interest to impart pilot training to aspirants. Two years ago, the airport became operational and some airlines are operating domestic flights from Kurnool.
The AP government will soon invite the financial bid for handing over 600 acres to an aviation training academy near the airport. The training academy has to build the infrastructure in the land allotted to it. It will also utilise the airport for pilot training.
