Delhi. Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp., has completed more than 5000 student days of training at its customer training center in Hyderabad, India since commencing operations in September 2015. This is one of three Pratt & Whitney training centers globally, offering specialized DGCA and EASA Part 147 approved training for airline customers and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities, as well as academic skill development programs to spur the growth of the aviation sector in India. Multiple leading aerospace organizations have extended their support to the skill development initiatives undertaken by Pratt & Whitney and will consider providing career opportunities to students trained by the company.

Pratt & Whitney’s customer training center works with more than five state governments and leading state and private universities and has successfully conducted specialized short-term training programs for the benefit of faculty and students in the country. The center has successfully delivered its programs 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 programs in the country. These partnerships are aimed at facilitating the growth of an aviation ecosystem in the country through development of an industry-ready talent pool in support of the massive growth in the aviation sector in India.

Speaking about the milestone, Palash Roy Chowdhury, Managing Director, Pratt & Whitney, UTC India, said, “As a company we firmly support the ‘Make in India’ campaign that has provided significant impetus to India’s economic growth since its launch. We believe that ‘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 center in Hyderabad getting an opportunity to work at leading aerospace organizations like Belcan. We would like to thank Belcan India for their participation in this important initiative and continue to work closely with other parties to establish a robust aviation skill development platform in the country.”
