“This agreement shows the confidence ANA has in the quality of L3Harris’ training capabilities,” says David Coward, Vice President and General Manager, Airline Academy, L3Harris.

“The ANA Group already entrusts us to train its pilots for Peach Aviation and now we will play an even more important role in preparing pilots for its flagship carrier.”

From March, ANA cadets will attend a 60-week single and multi-engine flight and ground school in England, before returning to Japan.

L3Harris did not provide the length of the contract, or the financial terms involved. 

Back in the Japan they will complete their Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau License.
