International Track 200

CTC is investing to capitalise on the growing worldwide demand for pilots. Chief executive Rob Clarke, 38, himself a former pilot, led a buyout backed by private equity house Inflexion in 2012 and has since opened training facilities in Arizona and expanded in New Zealand. CTC trains 2,000 pilots a year for 50 airlines, including Qatar Airways, easyJet, British Airways and Australia’s Jetstar, helping international sales reach an annualised £5.4m in 2013.
