Malé, Maldives – Thirteen parties have shown interest to establish a flight school in Maldives in partnership with Island Aviation.

Island Aviation’s Communication Director Moosa Waseem informs that thirteen parties including companies belonging to EU, US, the Middle East and local companies have shown interest in forming a partnership to establish flight school.

Island Aviation states that the documents are being evaluated with the aim to form a flight school at the earliest.

Previously, Island Aviation informed to potential partners that the applying company must have the ability to form two flight schools out of their country for partners. Flight school management experience and financial ability is given priority.

Island Aviation which runs the Maldives national airline, Maldivian, is looking to establish a flight school after the previous flight school, Asian Academy of Aeronautics (AAA) has become defunct with students left with student loans looking for other options.

The contract with AAA ends next month.
