The Skyplan Aviation Academy (SAA) is set to become the leading training institution for flight operations and flight dispatch.
SAA is the education arm of Skyplan, a name known worldwide for its expertise in flight planning and flight dispatch services.
The new academy at Dubai Airport Free Zone [DAFZA], has launched competency-based program that meets ICAO, GCAA and UAE-approved standards.
In this TATV Spotlight programme, Chief Instructor Kent Huber explains to Alan Peaford just how the new academy will help meet the rising demand for flight dispatchers across the whole region.
The long-term goal of the establishment is two-fold: train new entrants for a flight dispatch career and also maintain the skills of existing professionals, who are required to undergo retesting every 12 months and renew their license every two years.
Huber outlines key advantages for a career in aviation with Skyplan. “We want people that have an interest in aviation. You have to have that,” he says.
