ICAO certifies Ethiopian Aviation Academy as the ICAO Regional Training Center of Excellence

Ethiopian Airlines is pleased to announce that Ethiopian Aviation Academy, the largest and the most modern aviation academy in Africa, has been recognized as ICAO Regional Training Center of Excellence on May 11, 2016 at the ICAO’s Global Aviation Training and TRAINAIR PLUS symposium held at Conrad hotel in Seoul, Korea.

The Academy attained the recognition following a rigorous assessment of the Training organization, Training & Procedures Manuals, Facilities, Training Processes, Qualification of Staff and Quality System.


The recognition allows ET to develop and host ICAO Training Packages (ITPs) in addition to ICAO recognized Standardized Training Packages (STPs) of its own. Moreover, besides improving the quality of training, by making it more of material dependent than instructor dependent, the ITPs and STPs can also be exchanged with all ICAO TRAINAIR PLUS members and generate revenue.
