Norwegian companies will invest 15 million euros in setting up a pilot training centre in Hévíz, in western Hungary, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Monday.
Central European Aviation Cluster and Pilot Flight Academy plan to start the trainings in September 2019. The facility is scheduled to train some 300 pilots annually, Stig Eyde, CEO of Central European Aviation Cluster, said. The centre will use the Heviz-Balaton airport as a base, he said, adding that Hungary’s business environment is fostering investment.
At the press conference in Budapest, Szijjártó said that the training centre will also cement Hungary’s position in the dynamically developing aviation sector.
