Aviation and pilot training
The Bundaberg aviation industry and pilot training programs are also making an impact on trade links between the two cities.
A Bundaberg aviation delegation organised by the Council visited Nanning in June 2014. The group consisted of representatives from Council, CQUniversity and Jet Aircraft Operations (JAO). The purpose of the visit was to investigate potential partnership opportunities with Guangxi University and Nanning Industry Investment Corporation to jointly develop the Nanning General Aviation industry.
A four-way MOU between the four organisations was signed in September 2014 during the China-ASEAN Expo in Nanning. As an outcome of this MOU, from 2015 Bundaberg will host a number of pilot training groups from Nanning. The Bundaberg airport precinct will be used as the training facility for delivering general aviation pilot license course.
