Alpha Aviation Group Ltd is managed by Bhanu Choudhrie, who founded and managed C&C Alpha Group. Alpha Aviation Group is the only accredited flight school in the Philippines. Choudhrie’s background in the hotel, health care and real estate industries has enabled him to make intelligent investments in the aviation industry.
In 2003, Bhanu Choudhrie purchased shares of the Indian low-cost airline Air Deccan. This was his first investment in a business. Five years later, when the company was sold to Kingfisher, it was handling 7 million passengers per year on 200 flights per day. Bhanu Choudhrie founded Alpha Aviation Group in 2006 because the demand for pilots exceeded the supply. There are more middle-class people in Southeast Asia; Alpha Aviation established flight training centers in the Philippines and United Arab Emirates.
As living standards in developing nations improve and the global middle class expands, demand for commercial aviation increases. This is beneficial for the entire industry. Large commercial flights have a high demand for pilots, but it can be difficult to find qualified candidates because smaller airlines often need to pay more or offer the required experience.
Bhanu Choudhrie is incredibly proud that he was named Asian Entrepreneur of the Year by the United Kingdom in 2008. He believes that a notable development in the aviation industry over the next two to three decades will increase aviation investment in developing nations, particularly Asia. Because the baby boomer generation in the United States is aging, he continues, approximately 30,000 pilots will retire within the next few years. This will be a tremendous opportunity for Alpha Aviation and its training facilities. Choudhrie motivates his team to generate innovative concepts by carefully selecting which businesses to invest in. Then, he gives his portfolio companies money and strategic advice on how to grow and establish themselves in the market. He claims that his company’s success is due to his decision to invest over a long period of time in good management teams.
