Bhanu Choudhrie Finding Opportunities in the Mundane

Alpha Aviation Group is a world-class pilot training business that has grown over the last 14 years. The AAG was established as a stopgap measure for the commercial pilot shortage experienced by the aviation industry. The aviation group has trained over a thousand students in 40 countries.

The Alpha Aviation Group is a subsidiary of the C &C Alpha Group which has been incubating and growing companies for the last 18 years. The group has a diverse portfolio that includes aviation, real estate, hospitality, banking, health care, and utilities. It has an international outlook with a significant presence in the US, India, the UK, and the UAE.

The group is headed by Bhanu Choudhrie, who is also the founder and CEO. The British-Indian investor and businessman focus is on emerging markets such as India and China. Through Bhanu Choudhrie leadership and dedication, Bhanu Choudhrie has managed to bring needed innovation to the aviation industry. With its 11 flight simulators, they have managed to make flight training faster and easier.

With the simulators, pilots only need two years of training as opposed to 5 years in the more traditional training method. This accelerated training program is cost effective, especially for smaller airlines that don’t have the required budget to train pilots for their airline. This price reduction has enabled the airlines to grow.

With the success of this program, Bhanu Choudhrie hopes to make pilot training accessible even in remote places. Although aviation and hospitality industries have been the most affected by covid-19, he sees this as an opportunity to keep innovating.

Apart from investments and business, Bhanu is a philanthropist and the director of the path to success, a charitable organization started by his mother. Path to success aims to help people with limited financial ability access education and helps support those with long-term health concerns and little financial capability. He is also part of the board of directors at customers bank and the Atlantic Coast Financial Corporation.
