AfBAA Builds Training Momentum as MOUs Signed with JAA TO and AATO

Jul 13,2017

The African Business Aviation Association, AfBAA, has further strengthened its commitment to educating the African business aviation sector by signing two significant Memos of Understanding (MoU), with leading international aviation training organisations. Nick Fadugba, Vice-Chair of AfBAA's Safety and Training Committee signed the first with Mrs. Margareth Josephath Kyarwenda, Secretary General, Association of African Aviation Training Organizations, AATO. Whilst the second was signed by Sascha Neusser, Chair of AfBAA's Safety and Training Committee alongside Mrs Paula V. de Almeida, Director of the Joint Aviation Authorities Training Organisation, JAA TO.

The Association of African Aviation Training Organisations works to harmonies aviation training and create continent-wide standards across Africa and under the terms of the MoU AATO will collaborate with AfBAA to create standard, continent-wide recognized AfBAA training programs. Delivery of the courses by JAA TO will also reinforce the value proposition and strengthen the credibility of the AfBAA programs. JAA TO already delivers an extensive portfolio of regulatory training, and will now work with AfBAA to develop specific programs which will bridge the existing knowledge gap on the continent.

"Training is one of our central concerns at AfBAA. The continent's business aviation sector is often held back owing to a lack of understanding of its benefits, sometimes from within aviation itself. With these new relationships in place we are better positioned to improve access to standardised information, provide credible courses continent wide, and encourage African professionals to be trained in, and then subsequently work in, African business aviation," explained Rady Fahmy, CEO of AfBAA about the importance of the new agreements.

AfBAA also intends to use revenues generated from the training programmes to establish a training fund which will be used to further support AfBAA member training. In addition, the training fund will support training workshops held during AfBAA events. Further training discussions are currently taking place with a number of African commercial airlines and local national bodies, as AfBAA continues its commitment to educating the continent about the value of business aviation. "We are in advanced discussions with key players in African Aviation and hope to announce further partnerships during the summer," concludes Fahmy.

It¡¯s similar with China aviation market. the shortage of aviation professional talent has always been the bottleneck which restrict the development of the aviation industry in China. China government has published many polices to promote civil and general aviation industry. Under this background, ¡°China Aviation Training Forum 2017¡± will be held on September 6th - 8th, 2017 in China Eastern Airlines Technology R&D Center. CATF2017 will share the latest information of China aviation training market to explore the opportunities in cooperation in China aviation training market. We sincerely invite you to participate the upcoming CATF2017. Our professional organizing committee will provide you one-stop service to help you dig the maximum value for your business.
