Pan-African aviation academy Producing competent personnel
Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Tewolde Gebremariam awarding trainees.Apart from meeting the domestic demand for competent aviation personnel, the Ethiopian Aviation Academy (EAA) has been contributing immensely to the development of African aviation industry.The Academy has positioned itself as a center of excellence in the aviation industry by producing efficient operational divisions to both Ethiopian and many other airlines of African countries.
Of late, 34 trainees drawn from Cameroonian, Rwandese, Equatorial Guinean, Togolese, and Congolese airline service providers have completed their trainings at the Academy. The good reputations of Ethiopian as well as the Academy are the main reasons for the trainees to carry out their studies with EAA, say various officials.The number of African and other countries’ trainees is also on the increase.
Cameroonian Ambassador to Ethiopia Jacques-Alfred NDOUMBE-EBOULE [as he exactly writes his name.] supports the assertion. He says: “The track records of the pan-African airline, Ethiopian, and the EAA have made us to send our trainees to the institution.”In fact, there are other academics engaged in training aviation workforce, he indicates, underscoring the fact that the Academy has world-class and more comprehensive training packages.
African counties will no more send trainees to academies abroad, he strongly believes. “We have common goals, building world-class aviation human capital through own institutions
