The Deputy Director-General (Technical) at the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority Mr. Daniel Acquah said; “Safety is critical to the operation and certification of all Aircraft within our airspace. This type of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Program which provides the fundamental training for technicians is long overdue in our region. It is important that technicians get trained to the standards expected to meet the high standards of safety we have set ourselves. The GCAA is supportive of this initiative and will continue to work with Aerojet to improve Aviation safety in Ghana and the West Africa Region as a whole.”
Mr Mazisi Parkes, the CEO of Aerojet Aviation said; The opening of the applications process is very exciting. It’s the beginning of a very important process for many young Ghanaians and Africans in general; we remain resolute in providing opportunities for young people in the aviation industry. Our Training Academy together with our partners will continue to launch various training programs to prepare and qualify the youth for long-term careers in the industry.
It is significant to note that, the Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Training Programme our academy is offering comes with a guaranteed job at the end of it provided candidates pass the course. This is unprecedented in our region.”
