The unique center will allow Armenia to be in tune with global trends in development of small aviation

The General Department of Civil Aviation of Armenia has opened the only center in the region for training private pilots, Sergey Avetisyan, the head of the Department, said on Wednesday. 

The unique center, he said, will allow Armenia not only to be in tune with global trends in development of small aviation, but will also allow it to be the regional flagship in the training of private pilots.  

In his words, people from Georgia and Russia express interest in the center and the first application for training has already been received. 

The pilot-training center has been opened in cooperation with the United States’ Piper aircraft manufacturer and with support from its official representative in the Commonwealth of Independent States and Simon Mnoyan, director of SimAvia Company. 

Drew McEwen, vice-president of Piper, said that the opening of this center in Armenia is an achievement for the company and a step forward in development of small aviation in Armenia.

Training in the centre costs AMD 10 million, and the curriculum, including theoretical knowledge and practical classes, will last two months. 

The company has provided Piper PA-28-181 aircraft for practical classes.
