Bhanu Choudhrie acquired Air Deccan, a small airline in 2003, and transformed the airline into a famous powerhouse. The airline was critically hit by recession due to increased oil prices, which made many stakeholders to exit the aviation industry. During a recession, finding qualified pilots was a challenge, which was hindering aviation growth. He helped commercialize aviation in India through AAG to solve pilot shortages in the aviation sector across the Middle East nations. He advises that starting an aviation training facility and penetrating the market is a risky investment and requires diligence to entice investors.
He has guided AAG to form commercial ties with airlines such as Boeing, VietJet Air, Cebu Pacific, Air Arabia, Jet Airways, and Airbus. Commercial deals with these famous airlines increased demand for pilots from AAG Pilot Licensing academies. AAG is also located in the Philippines, as well as in the UAE.
