ENROLMENT at Fiji's only operational aviation school in Nadi is expected to increase this year.
About 50 students have been attending Advanced Aviation Training (Fiji) Limited and 20 more are expected to enrol next month.
School accountable manager Deborah Hinton said response to the training program had increased over the years.
"We have been operating since 2002 and we've seen that responses from all over the region have increased," said Mrs Hinton.
"Right now we have about 50 students enrolled with us and when enrolment starts in the next few weeks, we expect about 20 more students."
Mrs Hinton said the school had students from as far as Mongolia, Tuvalu, Solomon Islands and the Cook Islands.
"By looking at the many students that we attract from across the region, it is a positive development that governments, private organisations and even families fund their children to come over to Fiji and get their licence.
"It is good news for the aviation industry in the region and, of course, for Fiji."
