EAAEthiopian Airlines is pleased to announce that Ethiopian Aviation Academy, the largest and the most modern aviation academy in Africa, has been recognized as ICAO Regional Training Center of Excellence on May 11, 2016 at the ICAO’s Global Aviation Training and TRAINAIR PLUS symposium held at Conrad hotel in Seoul, Korea.

 

The Academy attained the recognition followinga rigorous assessment of the Training organization, Training & Procedures Manuals, Facilities, Training Processes, Qualification of Staff and Quality System.

 

The recognition allows Ethiopian to develop and host ICAO Training Packages (ITPs) in addition to ICAO recognized Standardized Training Packages (STPs) of its own. Moreover, besides improving the quality of training, by making it  more of material dependent than instructor dependent, the ITPs and STPs can also be exchanged with all ICAO TRAINAIR PLUS members and generate revenue.

 

Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO Ethiopian Airlines, said, “We believe education is the greatest equalizer in the 21stcentury and our Aviation Academy has strategically positioned itself to train the African youth in the latest Aviation technology and latest aviation skills to own, manage and operate their own indigenous home grown African Airlines to lead safe, economical and reliable aviation industry  with global standards. This recognition is the result of the continuous heavy investment we are making on human resource development, a critical pillar of our Vision 2025 strategy. We have invested more than 100 million dollars to expand both the scope of the training and the in-take capacity of the Academy. Today, our Academy admits over 1,500 students per year to train pilots, aircraft technicians, cabin crew, marketing and finance personnel, customer service agents as well as aviation leaders. Going forward, we plan to increase this in-take capacity to 4,000 by 2025, so as to cater for the growing training need in the continent.”

 

Ethiopian Aviation Academy (EAA) has recently been awarded  “Airline Service Provider of the Year” award by the African Airlines Association (AFRAA) for its excellence in service delivery, innovation and competitiveness in best service providers to the African aviation industry.

 

The academy is also a full member of ICAO TRAINAIR PLUS since May 20, 2015.
