A targeted international marketing campaign by a South Australian flying school has created a blue sky opportunity in Asia’s rapidly expanding aviation training market.

Using its $20,000 Export Partnership Program (EPP) grant from the South Australian Government, Hartwig Air Group has secured a significant deal with Vietnam Airlines and the Vietnamese Civil Aviation Authority to train airline cadets.

Hartwig Air’s deal, which has the potential to boost South Australian annual exports by more than $9 million, is the company’s first international airline training contract and consolidates Adelaide as a preferred training location for Asian markets.

Minister for Investment and Trade, Martin Hamilton-Smith, visited Hartwig Air at Parafield to congratulate the Hartwig team and to announce that the latest round of EPP funding has seen 33 recipients share in $791,000 in EPP funding…

Hartwig Air is also set to take part in the forthcoming South Australian Government South East Asia trade mission to the Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam, taking place between May 26 and June 5.
