Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp, has completed more than 5,000 student days of training at its customer training centre in Hyderabad since commencing operations in September 2015.

This is one of three Pratt & Whitney training centres globally, offering specialised DGCA and EASA Part 147 approved training for airline customers and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities, as well as academic skill development programmes to spur the growth of the aviation sector in India. Multiple leading aerospace organisations have extended their support to the skill development initiatives undertaken by Pratt & Whitney and would consider providing career opportunities to students trained by the company.

Palash Roy Chowdhury, Managing Director, Pratt & Whitney, UTC India, said, “As a company we support the ‘Make in India’ campaign that has provided significant impetus to India’s economic growth since its launch. We believe ‘Make in India’ will only be successful if Skill India succeeds. Skill development will be a cornerstone of aviation growth.”

“It is heartening to see students trained at our world-class training centre in Hyderabad getting an opportunity to work at leading aerospace organisations like Belcan,” he said.

Pratt & Whitney’s customer training centre works with more than five state governments and leading state and private universities, and has successfully conducted specialised short-term training programmes for the benefit of faculty and students in the country.

The centre has delivered programmes in Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Haryana, and has trained students from more than 30 operators, representing 20 nationalities.

Additionally, Pratt & Whitney has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with leading global universities to provide aerospace and aviation skill development programmes in the country.

Amit Pathak, General Manager, Pratt & Whitney’s Customer Training Centre in India said, “This announcement is a testimony of our commitment to ensuring a pool of skilled aviation talent in the country. Completing more than 5,000 student days is a major milestone for us, and such an achievement will go a long way in developing skilled aviation talent in the country.”
