A total of 650 fellowships were awarded for a combined duration of 1 125.5 work-months, as described below:


  • 285 fellowships were awarded under country and regional technical cooperation projects funded by recipient governments or donors.


  • 365 fellowships were awarded under Memoranda of Understanding signed by ICAO with India, the Republic of Korea and Singapore, for the provision of training to be funded by these countries and administered by ICAO. Of these: 


    • 24 fellowships for training at the Indian Aviation Academy in Aerodromes (Annex 14 — Aerodromes), Instructor Course, Airport Engineering (Planning, Design and Construction) and Airport Terminal Management (Annex 9 — Facilitation);


    • 237 fellowships for training at the Civil Aviation Training Centre of Korea Airports Corporation and the Incheon Airport Aviation Academy. Related subject matter included air navigation policy, airport operations, airport lighting operation and management, aviation security national inspectors, airport terminal operations, radar approach control, instrument landing systems (ILS) maintenance, DVOR/DME maintenance, NAVAIDS installation and operation, automatic radar terminal system (ARTS), electronic safety tools, aviation security and safety, airport greenhouse gas management and aviation policy for executives; and


    • 104 fellowships for training undertaken at the Singapore Aviation Academy, in civil aviation management, aviation leadership scholarship programme, Communications, Navigation and Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM), the ICAO State Safety Programme, safety oversight inspectors (flight operations, airworthiness and air navigation services), safety audits of air traffic services, safety oversight management, aviation security auditing techniques and developing Security Manuals, and aviation security leadership and management.


In addition, ICAO experts recruited through technical cooperation projects provided in-country training in various fields for 5 411 civil aviation administration personnel. Recipient States also continued to include substantial training for their nationals as part of the procurement component of their ICAO technical cooperation projects. A full 566 national staff benefited from training in new technologies and in the operation of equipment purchased through ICAO.


The training of management, technical and operational personnel was particularly important in terms of improving State oversight capabilities. According to information provided by Member States, personnel trained through the Technical Cooperation Programme are progressively absorbed by civil aviation administrations, which greatly benefit from the training and retention of a workforce of qualified aviation safety and security personnel, including inspectors.
