CAPA to develop AeroPark academy in GCC

CAPA’s South Asia Director, Binit Somaia, stated CAPA plans to open a satellite academy of the CAPA AeroPark in the GCC region (Emirates 24|7, 03-Nov-2010). Mr Somaia identified the UAE as the most likely location but added the precise location is yet to be determined. CAPA and SCDC Group signed a JV agreement to develop CAPA AeroPark in Bangalore, with plans to roll out satellite academies in Mumbai and Delhi.

CAPA: "Given the rapid growth of the aviation industry in the Gulf with its large fleet orders and major airport development projects, establishing a Capa AeroPark academy in the UAE is a natural extension of our initiative … Our immediate focus is on establishing the flagship campus in Bangalore and the satellites in Delhi and Mumbai, so a final decision on the location and scope of our expansion into Gulf will probably be taken towards the end of 2011," Binit Somaia, South Asia Director.
