Air Traffic and Navigation Services (ATNS) SOC and its aviation partners – launched a career awareness road-show in Harding, KZN, South Africa, as a precursor to the Aviation Youth Summit and International Civil Aviation Day (ICAD) celebrations, that took place in Durban and Margate Regional Airport respectively.


ATNS, as a founding-member of JAAP believes in investing, identifying and nurturing talent, by exposing learners, particularly in rural areas - to careers in Air Traffic Management and Aeronautical Engineering.  Over the years, ATNS has and continues to steadfastly support JAAP’s outreach programmes that include among others, the promotion of aviation as a career of choice amongst Grade 09 – 12 learners, specifically those studying Pure Mathematics, English and Physical Science. 

On Wednesday, 7 December 2016, over three-hundred (300) youth aged between 18 and 35 years, attended the Dube Trade Port, King Shaka International Airport precinct, for the inaugural Aviation Youth Summit. The Minister of Transport and KZN Provincial Premier are expected to be present. 

The Summit brought together relevant stakeholders to discuss, among others, strengthening of dialogue between Government, youth and broader society on issues of youth development and its impediments, and to encourage and empower youth with skills to conquer the 21st century. 

ICAD reinforces global awareness around the importance of international civil aviation in the social and economic development of all countries. Established back in 1994 and endorsed by the United Nations (UN) - and recognised and listed as an official UN Day, ICAD is meant to also promote safety, efficiency and regularity of international air transport.
