Posted 6 September 2013 · Add Comment

Ethiopian Aviation Academy graduated 71 cabin crew, 43 aviation maintenance technicians and 140 marketing professionals, including trainees from Equatorial Guinea, in a ceremony held at Ethiopian Airlines headquarters on September 5, 2013.

Chief executive officer of Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam, said: "Human resource development is one of the four pillars of our Vision 2025. We are investing heavily to expand the in-take capacity of our Academy and to introduce the latest technologies and teaching methods such as the ICAO certified multi-license pilot training. From just a little over 200 trainees' annual in-take capacity a few years ago, our Academy can now accommodate over 1,000 trainees annually. The aim is to reach 4,000 trainees annual in-take capacity by 2025, with half of our Academy’s capacity catering for the growing training need in Africa and supporting other sisterly airlines in the continent."
