20 Trainee Air Traffic Controllers To Undergo Training By Airports Fiji

Airports Fiji Limited has recruited 20 trainee Air Traffic Controllers (ATC) to undergo a demanding yet rewarding six month Basic ATC course.

The training will be provided in-house at the AFL Aviation Academy and started off yesterday.

Airports Fiji executive chairman, Faiz Khan, welcomed the new cadets who have landed an opportunity to become our future air traffic controllers.

Mr Khan said “This is a lucrative yet challenging career path for the 20 young trainees. There are no universities that offer air traffic training in Fiji.

“This is a specialised area so we train young minds in-house to become responsible future air traffic controllers.

“The basic ATC course will go for six months before the trainees get assessed on their capabilities.

“The cadets get paid by AFL whilst going through the training and all who pass the Basic ATC course get employment with AFL.”

 

Continued capacity building

Mr Khan further emphasised to the cadets the importance of AFL’s culture of continual capacity building and growth; and team work.

He said that AFL placed great emphasis on its recruitment procedures to attract the best minds in Fiji.

This group of 20 were selected from more than 300 applications.

The first three months of the training will be theory work with simulators in the classrooms followed by on the job training in the final three months.
