The International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO’s) secretary general, Dr. Fang Liu has agreed a new air navigation training cooperation agreement with Eurocontrol’s director general, Eamonn Brennan.
The two organisations will collaborate on joint air navigation training programmes and specific courses on areas such as air traffic management (ATM), cybersecurity and ATM Security Regulatory frameworks. The first training package to be implemented under this partnership will focus on managing security in ATM.
Following the signing, Dr. Liu remarked: “Combining ICAO and Eurocontrol’s subject matter expertise and resources in providing training to member states and air navigation service providers (ANSPs) worldwide will efficiently contribute to higher level of member state compliance with ICAO standards and recommended practices (SARPs).”
Mr Brennan added: “We are delighted to be strengthening our links with ICAO and working together on joint training programmes which will benefit the global aviation community. With 50 years of experience under its belt, the Eurocontrol Institute for Air Navigation Services is ready to take on new challenges and support ICAO as we work together for a wider global compliance with ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs).”
