AFL builds capacity for regional aviation students
July 18, 2016 1:02 am
Seven regional aviation students will be trained by the Airports Fiji Limited (AFL) in Aerodrome Flight Information Service (AFIS) over the next 10 weeks in Nadi beginning this morning.
AFL General Manager Air Traffic Management and Aviation Training Isei Tudreu say it’s the duty of AFL to share this knowledge with its neighbours as a regional leader in aviation.
Tudreu said this area of specialized training will enable our regional partners to meet international civil aviation standards which AFL is providing at a cost.
These trainings allow our neighbours to provide an effective and efficient air traffic service for aircraft in their own countries.
Tudreu says there has been a growth in training requirements for regional countries which AFL has been providing since the inception of the Aviation Academy in 2011.
The seven regional students together with three locals will go through six weeks of theory and four weeks of simulator training.
