ICONIC BRANDS OF THE YEAR 2023
“Those who stretch their dimensions of creativity in all directions are the ones made to inspire the world.”
The above-mentioned quote subtly justifies the journey of an institution that is empowering young aspirants to achieve their dreams of aviation. Introducing Felix Pilot Training Institute, the company is a reckoning name in the aviation industry. The institution is the cosmic bridge for all those aspiring students who have a dream of serving the country via aviation. To elevate the spark of today’s read we invited a very special dignitary to have a conversation with our editorial team. Mr. Gokul Sudarsan- Founder and CEO of Felix Pilot Training Institute shared many lesser-known facts about the prowess of his institution.
His words and intellect shined like a diamond and in a short time we were asserted that Felix Pilot Training Institute has the aura to inspire our global readership panel and certainly deserves a serene mention under the exclusive segment of “Iconic Brands of the Year 2023”.
Beginning the Legacy
Our foremost call of inquisitiveness was for the driving force behind the company’s inception. To this, Mr. Gokul Sudarsan elucidated, “There was a huge lack of awareness about the aviation industry and its opportunities so Felix was founded seven years back to act as a bridge between the students and the aviation industry. The main motivating force was to bring awareness to the students about the industry and its job opportunities in South India Market and how the industry is going to boom in the future. If you look at our eminent workforce driving the institution to stellar heights, it comprises highly experienced professionals from the Aviation Industry with the approval of IAO (International Accreditation Organization) certification. An organization with highly experienced professionals in the aviation industry acts as a bridge between the students where the institute understands and fulfills their needs in the aviation field. Being an expert in the industry, we guide students to choose the relevant program, be it a flying or a non-flying one. That is where we have created the benchmark of differentiation and made numerous dreams come true to reality.”
Walking the Path of Excellence Via Adversities
In a rigorous industry like aviation, it becomes immensely imperative to have on board, the right people with the right skill set and progressive ideology. Mr. Gokul agrees to the same notion and told us that in his opinion the people any organization recruits as its employees can greatly benefit or harm one’s start-up’s success.
Continuing further he quotes, “A negative employee can quickly damage team morale and productivity. It’s tough having to fire someone but having the wrong people in your start-up can be very disruptive. Your first hire opening in a new window is an important one, so spend time making sure you find the right person. Look who shares your values and has valuable experience. The ongoing dilemma of finding the right talent is a real challenge for employers, and employees have numerous choices to choose from. Hence a strategically crafted ideology is required to attract the right talent onboard. Once onboard, the next challenge for us was to align their mindsets with the ongoing strategies and plans. Our vision and principles have helped us to mitigate these challenges. In the end, we as an organization also expect our trusted workforces to be adaptable to the changing technology ecosystem, and resources. We are always on the forefront to join their skill enhancement journeys and motivate them to stay fervently dedicated.”
