Posted 25 April 2013 · Add Comment

The Ethiopian Aviation Academy graduated 135 aviation maintenance technicians and 67 cabin crew at a ceremony held at Ethiopian Airlines headquarters in Addis Ababa.

Ethiopian Airlines CEO, Ato Tewolde Gebremariam, said: “Ethiopian Aviation Academy has grown from an annual intake capacity of just 200 students to 1000 at present. In the last couple of years, we have invested 50 million US$ into its expansion.

“The expanded capacity of the academy is in line with our Vision 2025 to enable it to accommodate 4,000 trainees per year. The academy is working hard to train enough skilled aviation personnel to cater, not just for our fast-growing needs, but also those of the aviation industry in Africa and the Gulf.

“I take this opportunity to thank the Ethiopian Air Force for their continued support in the training programme of the graduates.”

The Ethiopian Aviation Academy currently encompasses six independently running aviation training schools catering to both local and international aviation training needs. It consists of: the Cabin Crew Training School, the Marketing & Ground Operations Training School, the Pilot Training School, the Aviation Maintenance Technician School, the Technical Recurrent Training School, and Leadership Training.

Due to the ever-increasing demand for its basic and recurrent training programmes from domestic and international customers, the Ethiopian Aviation Academy is currently undergoing a massive transformation by heavily investing to equip itself with modern training aircraft, computer-based trainings, simulators, and other ultra-modern facilities.
