Pilots are one of the most highly trained workers in the aviation industry. Bhanu Choudhrie, Chairman of Sahara World Air and Chairman of MAS, discussed the status of the pilot market in Asia, how to prepare pilots for the future of pilot training, how to prepare the pilots for the future of aircraft operations, and how to prepare aviation companies for growth.
Bhanu Choudhrie likewise chairs the Audit Committee of MAS Aircraft, an aircraft leasing company; Chairman of Savari Technologies, a private equity and infrastructure fund focused on the transportation, real estate and services sectors, and Global Blackstar Aviation. How safe is flying? What are the limitations of flight simulation? These are questions that many people across the world want answered, and more and more companies are turning their attention towards the aviation industry.
One of the world’s leading aviation experts, Bhanu Choudhrie, shared his thoughts with us on the future of pilot training and the importance of artificial intelligence on it. Bhanu Choudhrie is a founding member of the Choudhrie Group, a business advisory and management consulting company. He is the Executive Chairman of Jain International Airlines and has over 40 years of aviation experience. His career in aviation started as an aviation management consultant with Price Waterhouse & Co. In 1994, Bhanu left the firm and set up his firm.
Iconic early-stage venture capital firm BanyanTree Growth Ventures is announcing its third fund with capital commitments from leading angels, strategic partners and high-net-worth investors to invest in early-stage aviation companies. The round was co-led by BanyanTree founder, Bhanu Choudhrie, and existing investor, Seed Funds. BanyanTree previously raised funds with early participation from over 35 angels, including Mohamed Alabbar, Zaha Hadid, Matinas, and other well-known investors.
The impact of artificial intelligence is permeating across all sectors, from healthcare and financial services to finance and media. Over the past two years, a wave of pilots has left the airline industry, either to pursue other opportunities, or to retrain as pilots-in-training. There are many benefits to training pilots, but the primary reason they train pilots is because they know there will be a need for them in the future.
