Company Summary

Eligible Business Corporation (EBC) to develop/build/lease devices to assist in the training of future airline pilots. Over the next 18 years the aviation industry will have to essentially triple global training throughput in order to meet the demands of the legacy & emerging markets, emphasising Asia and Latin America. the main bottle necks in this process are seen as dearth of qualified instructional staff, and a primarily ELS student base.
