The Asian Voice Political and Public Life Awards has presented Bhanu Choudhrie with the 2008 Entrepreneur of the Year award. Mr. Choudhrie is a top-level entrepreneur in London with degrees from Harvard Business and from Boston University. He started his career at JP Morgan before founding C&C Alpha Group, a family-owned private equity business in London in 2001, which continues to be successful enterprise. Out of C&C Alpha Group, Bhanu Choudhrie started the Alpha Aviation Group Ltd. (AAG), which is recognized as a world-class, industry-leading flight school with an ISO 9001:2015 accreditation. From there, Choudhrie procured a small-scale Indian airline, Air Deccan, which Bhanu Choudhrie grew from a small, single-airplane company to a seven million passenger per year company with 200 daily flights.

Aside from some challenges presented by oil price fluctuation and the habit of overland train travel in India, Choudhrie considered a lack of qualified pilots to be the biggest block to growth in aviation. In collaboration with a Singapore Technology, Alpha Aviation Group Ltd. has been set to meet this shortage not only in India but in other parts of the world, including the Middle East and the Asian-Pacific area and has graduated 800 flight-ready pilots now employed with such airlines as VietJet Air, Philippine Airlines, Jet Airways and Air Arabia. 2019 will present a demand for 284,000 qualified pilots.

AAG’s Philippines-based training company now operates with several top-level simulation systems designed for such air vehicles as the Airbus A320, Boeing 737 and Cessna 172S G1000 and also offers air vehicle upset avoidance and recovery training. Bhanu Choudhrie has focused on other industries as well, especially hospitality and real estate. With the new hotel addition in Vietnam, the C&C Alpha Group subsidiary Shanti Hospitality Group Ltd now extends to 24 hotels and a collective 2,000 rooms. Bhanu Choudhrie adivises new entrepreneurs to understand money’s value and to work hard and to be surrounded by an environment of successful professionals and new ideas. Mr. Choudhrie also has a family tradition of working in charitable efforts with his mother’s Path to Success schools. He believes entrepreneurs have a lot of growth potential in the Asia-Pacific region, which he supports through C&C Alpha Group’s leadership and innovation.
