On Friday, 16th November, HE, Mr. Li Manchang, the Ambassador of PRC China in Serbia visited SMATSA Aviation Academy in Vršac, together with his associates. “I really have great impressions. I did not know that Academy is so big and modern and at such a high level” said Ambassador.
Mr. Predrag Jovanović, CEO of Serbia and Montenegro Air Traffic Services SMATSA Llc, who was the host of this visit, presented to China’s Ambassador, capacities of Aviation Academy in Vršac, as well as pilots’ training possibilities.
“This is unique complex in this part of Europe. Pilot’s school and private airport are placed on 350 hectares, with one concrete and two grass runways, aircraft maintenance services and air traffic control. We can offer this complete process to you.
Keeping in mind the forecast that we will have a shortage of almost 800,000 pilots in the world in the following 20 years, and that they will be needed mostly in the region of Asia and Pacific and the most in China, I think that we can offer to our Chinese partners a qualitative training with acceptable prices. Mr. Jovanović pointed that “Chinese students would learn in friendly environment since Chinese citizens are always welcome here”.
