We are proud of our long-standing association with certain airline customers. We have been training for the Qantas Group since the early 90s, Cathay Pacific since 1994 and Dragonair since 1998. The secret to our customer retention is built on three principles:

  • Listening to the customer and understanding their needs.
  • Operational flexibility to deal with changing customer needs.
  • Exceeding customer expectations.

Since 1982 we have trained a large number of major airlines from all continents with the exception of the Americas. Exposure to airlines from all over the world has given us invaluable insight into different training practices and cultural differences.
