In an influential move endorsing domestic resources, Novation Academy, Cambodia’s premier flight training school, has joined forces with Royal Group Samra Seaplane, an emerging amphibious seaplane operation. The symbiotic partnership is in line with their shared vision of leveraging local resources to advance Cambodia’s aviation sector.

Highlighting this shared endeavor, Capt. Lionel Vincent Mougel, COO of Samra Seaplane, stated, “Unyielding in our quest for locally available resources, Samra Seaplane places utmost importance on exploring domestic training solutions, provided they fully meet regulatory and operational requirements and standards. As such, we are happy to see Novation Academy’s efforts in this regard.”
