IFTI and CAAC sign flight test training agreement


In response to its growing need for highly skilled, well trained test pilots and flight test engineers, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) will begin training flight test pilots and flight test engineers at the International Flight Test Institute (IFTI) at aviation’s hallowed ground of Mojave, California, USA.

Students will attend a comprehensive refresher course covering all topics involved in civil aircraft certification training, from performance and flying qualities to all types of aircraft.

“With our world renowned training staff and some 35 different types of aircraft and helicopters available, we look forward to a long lasting relationship providing state-of-the-art training to CAAC personnel,” said IFTI’s CEO, Bill Korner. “We believe strongly that there is a significant, unfulfilled demand for skilled civilian test pilots and flight test engineers, and we’ve invested heavily in meeting that demand – we are very proud of the amazing cadre of instructors and fleet of aircraft we’ve assembled.”
