Airports India - - NEWS -

Rec­og­niz­ing that safety, ef­fi­ciency and reg­u­lar­ity of air nav­i­ga­tion and bal­anced de­vel­op­ment of In­ter­na­tional Civil Avi­a­tion rely on the con­tin­u­ous train­ing of avi­a­tion per­son­nel and rec­og­niz­ing the im­por­tance of as­sis­tance and co­op­er­a­tion in the field of avi­a­tion train­ing, Air­ports Author­ity of In­dia (AAI) has been grant­ing fel­low­ships to cit­i­zens of de­vel­op­ing coun­tries for the last eight years. In con­tin­u­a­tion of AAI’S en­deavor to help de­vel­op­ing coun­tries, a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing be­tween the In­ter­na­tional Civil Avi­a­tion Or­ga­ni­za­tion (ICAO) and the Air­ports Author­ity of In­dia (AAI) was signed on 9th Oc­to­ber 2015. Dr Fang Liu Sec­re­tary Gen­eral, ICAO and Shri Anuj Ag­gar­wal, Mem­ber (HR), AAI, signed this MOU for a pe­riod of two years.

As per the MOU, the ICAO, rep­re­sented by the Tech­ni­cal Co­op­er­a­tion Bureau (TCB), and AAI agreed to jointly es­tab­lish and ad­min­is­ter a train­ing pro­gramme to train par­tic­i­pants se­lected from des­ig­nated ICAO Mem­ber States (de­vel­op­ing coun­tries). The ar­eas of train­ing to aug­ment the ca­pa­bil­ity of the de­vel­op­ing coun­tries to im­ple­ment the ICAO Stan­dards and Rec­om­mended Prac­tices and to pro­mote the safety and de­vel­op­ment of in­ter­na­tional civil avi­a­tion will be de­cided jointly by ICAO and AAI.

In or­der to im­part train­ing to the de­vel­op­ing coun­tries that are most in need of as­sis­tance, es­pe­cially in the area of civil avi­a­tion, ICAO and AAI are re­quired to jointly de­ter­mine the de­vel­op­ing coun­tries from which the par­tic­i­pants are se­lected. AAI will pro­vide a to­tal of 12 fel­low­ships through 2 train­ing pro­grammes ev­ery year and all ex­penses for the in­vi­tee par­tic­i­pants from de­vel­op­ing coun­tries are to be borne by AAI. In the year 2014-15, AAI has paid US $1,37,000/- to ICAO for the fel­low­ship pro­grammes.
