BEAT At AirAsia Academy

Eleven members from the training team of the Barrier-free Environment and Accessible Transport Group (BEAT) had a meeting with trainers from AirAsia last Saturday. It was held at the AirAsia Academy in Sepang. We were there to get a clearer picture of how BEAT can draw up training modules to fit into AirAsia’s existing training for its staff. After the meeting we were given a tour of the Academy, especially the flight simulator complex.

  1. Hi Peter – really proud of you as you and your friends have made great differences in changing the views of corporate Malaysia especially on issues relating to the physically challenged Malaysians. I am very proud of this.

    Peter:
    We each have our parts to play to achieve equality. If not our issues will be forgotten as has been the case always.
