Cessna Aircraft Company  announced during the Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium (APATS), that it has signed a multi-year agreement with Pan Am International Flight Academy. The agreement provides that Pan Am will purchase new, non-complex, single engine aircraft, which includes the Cessna Skyhawk 172, exclusively from Cessna for all of its primary flight training operations. In conjunction with this agreement, Cessna will also provide service support, parts discount and training.

“We are thrilled to work with Pan Am International Flight Academy, an industry leader in training support,” said Doug May, vice president, Piston Aircraft. “This new relationship with Pan Am will ensure student pilots have access to the world’s leading training aircraft, the Cessna Skyhawk.”

Headquartered in Miami, Florida, Pan Am International Flight Academy along with its subsidiary company, Pan Am Career Pilot Academy, is one of only a handful of training organizations capable of supporting all airline requirements through industry-leading flight training. The company provides flight simulation and training on nearly all major aircraft types with more than 200 professional training programs and experienced instructors. Pan Am is dedicated to being the preferred training choice for pilots, mechanics, flight attendants, dispatchers and airline cadets focused on transitioning to the airlines.
