The academy is being built on 10 rai of land at Nong Pok Village, Nong Pok Sub-district, Thawat Buri District, Roi Et province. The aviation academy, which will be one of the most modern in Southeast Asia, will help drive the local economy while establishing Roi Et a new hub of aviation training.

Mr. Chalitrat Chandrubeksa, President of Thai Aviation Co., Ltd., said, "My family has been in the aviation sector for four generations, since ACM Boonchu Chandrubeksa, Royal Thai Air Force Former Commander-in-Chief, (B.E. 2503 - 2517). We know very well that being a good pilot requires knowledge, training, and the guidance of experienced flight instructors, along with a proper airfield for practicing and an environment that contributes to the development of professional pilots. We see an opportunity to train civil pilots in compliance with ICAO standards. The company is investing over 200 million baht in the Thai Aviation Academy - Squadron 101 in Roi Et, where the province's flat plains provide optimum safety for aviation training. We will use Roi Et Airport for flight training as it is well-equipped with modern aviation technology and systems. The new aviation academy is expected to be completed by March 2019."

Mr. Chanapat Chandrubeksa, Vice President of Thai Aviation Co., Ltd., added, "The Thai Aviation Academy - Squadron 101 will open a new dimension for aviation training in Thailand. It's designed from the ground up to meet the needs of the young generation whose dream is to become a pilot. In addition to our strength of having highly-experienced flight instructors, we will also use the latest aircraft for flight training. With on-site classrooms, a dormitory, flight planning room, auditorium, and other facilities, the Thai Aviation Academy - Squadron 101 will offer an immersive learning environment where students will learn the skills, discipline, and personal and professional responsibilities of being a pilot. We care about quality, safety standards, and the well-being of students, which means the Thai Aviation Academy - Squadron 101 will be the perfect place to train to become a commercial pilot."

The Thai Aviation Academy - Squadron 101 will be the country's first fully-integrated aviation training center. It will offer five courses that meet ICAO standards: a Private Pilot's License Course, a Commercial Pilot's License Course, an Instrument Rating Course, a Multi-Engine Rating Course, and a Flight Instructor Rating Course.

The Thai Aviation Academy - Squadron 101 will soon begin accepting applications for its first class. For more details, contact the TAA at 0 2168 3301.
