GFT and RSU Partnership

GFT has successfully been an integral part of Rangsit University's (RSU) aviation degree program for the past six years. On September 20, 2012 officials from GFT traveled to Thailand under an invitation by RSU to renew this agreement for another five years.

Under this agreement, RSU recognizes GFT as a part of its degree program. They send students to GFT annually to study for a Commercial Pilot Licence. Gander, NL has diverse weather conditions and offer the best flight training anywhere in the world. GFT has been training pilots for over 20 years and is a great fit with RSU’s Aviation Degree Program.

The signing of this agreement is the cumulative of 10 years of work of launching GFT into the international flight training market. GFT trains international students from many counties but is especially proud of its relationship with RSU and the great accomplishments of both institutions and its students. GFT sees this opportunity expanding bringing even a greater international focus on Gander as a pilot training center.
During the MOU renewal ceremony in September 2012, Rangsit President Dr. Arthit Ourairat said: " RSU is very pleased with the great work we have done together in the past and the very sophisticated training program delivered with GFT in Canada with its diverse weather conditions they return our students to us with the best education that is delivered anywhere in the world"

GFT and RSU continue to produce exemplary Pilots and are very proud and thrilled to see them begin their careers in aviation.
