February 15, 2016 7:07 pm
Airports Fiji Limited has recruited 20 trainee Air Traffic Controllers (ATC) to undergo a demanding yet rewarding six month Basic ATC course.
AFL Executive Chairman Faiz Khan welcomed the new cadets who have landed an opportunity to become future air traffic controllers.
Khan says no universities in Fiji offer air traffic training and this is a lucrative career path for the 20 young trainees.
The cadets get paid by AFL whilst going through the training and all who pass the Basic ATC course get employment with AFL.
Khan further emphasized to the cadets the importance of AFL’s culture of continual capacity building and growth; and team work.
He said AFL placed great emphasis on its recruitment procedures to attract the best minds in Fiji.
This group of 20 were selected from more than 300 applications.
The training will be provided in-house at the AFL Aviation Academy beginning on Monday.
