Civil Aviation Training Center, also known as Center of Excellence in Aviation Training of Thailand, was founded in 1961 as a cooperative project between the United Nations Special Fund (UNSF), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Royal Thai Government. In 1966 the Thai Government undertook sole responsibility for the project and continued operating under the supervision of the Department of Aviation and the Ministry of Transport and Communication. Civil Aviation Training Center operates from three different locations with a presence in Bangkok and flight training centers in Hua Hin and Khon Kaen.
