HAITE Aviation Training, a subsidiary of Sichuan Haite High-Tech Co. Ltd. of Chengdu, China (HAITE Group), and Malaysian Airlines Berhad (MAB) Academy, a subsidiary of the Malaysian Aviation Group, signed an agreement to collaborate on joint commercial flight crew training services in Malaysia.

MAB Academy provides all aspects of airlines operations and management training, is endorsed by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) and is a strategic regional training partner with the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

HAITE and MAB Academy will work together to develop and implement turnkey pilot training solutions to various airlines in the Asia Pacific. The companies will also explore the setting up of a joint venture to provide high-fidelity simulator training for commercial pilots. In addition, both parties will work towards conducting a Multi-crew Pilot License (MPL) program, and jointly explore the provision of cabin crew training equipment to MAB Academy’s new facilities.

Ben Lam, Managing Director of HAITE Aviation Training Division said, “As an independent aviation training centre, HAITE Aviation Training has been playing a key role in developing and implementing skill development programs for aviation pilots and cabin crew across Asia Pacific. This MOU opens the pathway for closer collaborations between HAITE and MAB Academy to provide regional airlines with a one-stop, sustainable and effective training solution.”
