CAAS to Provide Aviation Training in Africa and Latin America

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) has signed new training Memorandums of Understanding with the Agency for Air Navigation Safety in Africa and Madagascar (ASECNA) and the Central American Corporation for Air Navigation Services (COCESNA).

The MOUs outline the framework agreement for the provision of aviation training by CAAS at the aviation training academies of ASECNA and COCESNA as well as the mutual sharing of aviation knowledge.

Under the MOUs, CAAS, through its training arm the Singapore Aviation Academy will deliver training programmes in the areas of air traffic management and aviation safety at the training units of ASECNA and COCESNA. The training programmes based on international aviation requirements and industry best practices will address competency gaps and seek to advance civil aviation in these regions.

Mr Kevin Shum, Director-General of CAAS said, Civil aviation in Africa and Latin America is growing strongly. Both regions will need to attract and train more aviation personnel to support the rapid growth in their regions. In this regard, the signing of the new training MOUs is an affirmation of CAAS commitment to the development of aviation human capital for the advancement of international civil aviation, in line with the International Civil Aviation Organizations No Country Left Behind initiative.
