Air India is reportedly mulling to set up an aviation university to cater to the demand for aviation courses particularly for pilots and cabin crew.

According to sources its Centre Training Establishment in Hyderabad can be converted into a full-fledged aviation university by upgrading the existing facility on minimum investment.

The nearly 60-year old premium aviation training institute currently offers courses in all aspects of aviation including for pilots, cabin crew, engineers, aviation security and ground handling among others.

“The demand for aviation professionals is rapidly growing but market is unable to cater to this demand as there are not many facilities, offering such courses under one roof,” said the source.
