Myanmar Pilots Start Making Their Mark Thanks to This Aviation School

After more than 40 years of political and economic isolation, Myanmar has finally opened its door to the world in 2012. It is, in fact, shaping up to be Asia-Pacific flavor of the decade for its growth in the aviation industry. As such, foreign carriers have started to make their way into the country that is rich both in resources and population.

According to CAPA – Center for Aviation, the leading provider of independent aviation market intelligence, analysis and data services, covering worldwide developments, Myanmar’s aviation market is set to enter a major period of growth as more favorable business environment sets in the country.

“The opportunities for all types of carriers – local and foreign, domestic and international, low-cost and full service – face no limitations in the medium term as the Myanmar market is now the most underserved market in ASEAN and perhaps all of Asia,” the CAPA said.

Such regulatory reforms in the aviation sector, together with restructured investment laws, provide a lot of opportunities for both domestic and foreign private participation in the sustainable development of aviation in Myanmar.

The series of such developments signal the growing demand for aviation personnel. That’s why many Myanmar Nationals take advantage by studying aviation to pursue dreams in flying.

Myanmar Nationals choose Philippines as their flight training location due to the influx of aviation schools in the Philippines that offer quality education in the field of aviation.

Among these aviation schools is the WCC Aviation, which is considered as one of the premier pilot training schools in Asia, and one of the three schools that operate its own airport, airline, and MRO facilities. It is likewise the only school in the country to operate its own airfield.

WCC Aviation caters to both local and foreign students who are all provided with lots of ground experience to instill a solid base of aeronautical training needed in the industry.

Myanmar is one of the countries that regularly sends students to the WCC Aviation for pilot training. In fact, there are already 25 students who have trained in the flying school under the Fast Track Pilot Program and are now actively working with different airlines in Myanmar.

Myanmar pilots start making their mark in different major airlines in their homeland such as Myanmar Airways International (MAI), Air Began, Asian Wings Airways, Air Mandalay and Yangon Airways.

Among Myanmar’s list of distinguished pilots that got their training from WCC Aviation are: Htoo Zaw Aung (MAI), ye pyae (Air Bagan), tet tun kyaw (MAI), arkar si thu (MAI), arkar kyaw (MAI), sai khaung satt (MAI), kaung khat zaw (MAI), Thura tun (Air Bagan), pyae thet oo (Air Bagan), thu kha aung (Asian Wings Airways), wai yan min lwin, aung ko ko kyaw, sam min kyaw, may soe naing (Air Mandalay), pyie phyo lwin (Yangon Airways), zaw win aung (Air Mandalay), yar zar myo (Asian Wings Airways), terisa win maung (Air Bagan), myat soe htoo (Yangon Airways), kaunt tet tun, aung thu hein (Air Bagan), saw thar gay (Air Bagan), kyaw phone mo (MAI), khun lengg, and Nay min aung.
