Airline Pilot training company CTC Aviation has been named as a finalist in the prestigious 2015 New Zealand International Business Awards.

The company, headquartered in the UK with a base in New Zealand, is one of nine to be selected as a finalist in the Awards' 'ANZ Best Business Operating Internationally – $10m-$50m' category.

CTC Aviation's Chief Operating Officer – Ab initio Training (NZ), Peter Stockwell, said CTC Aviation is honoured to be named as a finalist.

"At CTC Aviation we provide innovative and compelling pilot career programmes for a wide variety of customers, including some of the world's best airlines," he said.

"Our full-spectrum of pilot training services covers selection; basic and advanced training and airline placement; not only for new trainees but also for experienced pilots, instructors and examiners.

"It is fantastic to be recognised as one of the best businesses operating internationally in the New Zealand International Business Awards' $10m-$50m category. We are excited to have made such a strong impression in international business," he said.

As an Internationally Approved Training Organisation (for ab initio and type rating training), CTC Aviation trains and recruits approximately 3,000 aircrew for more than 50 global airlines each year.

The New Zealand International Business Awards celebrate the success of New Zealand businesses on the world stage and recognise professional excellence and innovative practice.

The programme is run by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise and supported by Strategic Partner ANZ.

Later this month, finalists will have the opportunity to make a winning impression when they participate in a 30 minute pitching and Q&A session in front of a judging panel.
