ATNS unveils new bursary programme

Posted 4 February 2020 · Add Comment

Air Traffic and Navigation Services (ATNS) SOC is in the process of assessing applications of twenty qualifying candidates, to be trained as Target Generating Officers (TGOs).

 

ATNS introduced the TGO Bursary Programme in November 2019.

 

TGOs are required to perform simulator pilot roles in the training of Air Traffic Controllers (ATCs) and Air Traffic Services Officers (ATSOs). Training – which is extensive – is expected start in the first quarter of 2020.

 

“The training of TGOs instead of ATCs and ATSOs is as a result of the realignment of Air Traffic Services function within ATNS and to fully comply with the South African Civil Aviation Authority’s reviewed operational legal requirements relating to simulator training,” said Interim ATNS CEO, Thomas Kgokolo

 

As a consequence, ATNS will not be calling for ATC Bursary applications this year (2020).
