AFI Training Database Development
Pan African Aviation Training Survey
Reference is made to the conclusions of the Special AFI RAN meeting held in Durban, South Africa, 23 November – 1 December 2008 (SP AFI RAN 2008), and in particular its recommendation 5/8 related to Safety Training Strategies in the AFI Region. As directed by SP AFI RAN 2008 Recommendation 5/8, ACIP in partnership with the African Civil Aviation Commission (AFCAC) organized a meeting of African Aviation Training Institutions (Johannesburg, May 2009) as a follow-up to the Aviation Training Conference organized by AFCAC (Niamey, February 2009). The May meeting led to the formation of an African Training Experts Working Group (TEWG).
One of the major tasks assigned to the TEWG is the establishment of a database on aviation training needs and resources within Africa.
You are requested to participate in this important activity that will enable analysis of aviation training demand, capacity and capability in Africa. This project is jointly led by ACIP and AFCAC with the support and endorsement of Airports Council International (ACI) Africa and African Airlines Association (AFRAA).
To enable us to progress this important project within the required timescales we signed an agreement with SITA to collect the required data and perform initial analysis. We will highly appreciate if you could extend your support to the SITA consulting team with additional information they may request in the course of the research.
