The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has selected Pratt & Whitney to form a partnership that will offer executive leadership training programs for Chinese airlines, CAAC management and those in maintenance, repair and overhaul. “We are looking forward to the success of this program, which will surely help Chinese airlines to reduce their maintenance costs while promoting their safety operations,” said Zhou Kaixuan, CAAC deputy director general of flight standards. Under a five-year agreement, up to 30 executives will be selected annually by the CAAC to participate in nearly four months of training that will take place at the Civil Aviation Management Institute of China and Pratt & Whitney’s Huapu Aviation Engine Training Center in China, and Pratt & Whitney’s Customer Training Center headquarters in East Hartford, Conn. Training topics will include aero engine awareness and engineering management, achieving competitive excellence, change management, supply chain, regulatory environments, leadership, program management, MRO cost strategies, aviation finance, engaging employees in a global environment and other management and business topics.
