The graduates include one Swiss pilot trainee and 19 cabin crew trainees from six African countries, namely Togo, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal and Guinea.

CEO Tewolde Gebremariam, said, "Ethiopian is more than an airline to Africa. It is also the premier Pan-African aviation academy with the highest international standards and dedicated to bridging the aviation skill gap on the continent. Today, Ethiopian has graduated trainees from six brotherly African countries, a testimony of its commitment to serve the growing training needs of the continent. Over the last 2 years, we have invested 55 million $ to expand the intake capacity of our academy from just 200 trainees to over 1,000. Going forward, per our Vision 2025, we plan to scale up this capacity to over 4,000 trainees annually, so as to satisfy the growing training need in Africa".

Ethiopian Aviation Academy is certified by the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority, the U.S Federal Aviation Administration, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and IOSA (IATA Safety Audit). The Academy has been providing training for pilots, maintenance technicians, cabin crew, marketing and leadership for the airlines’ needs and for third party admissions for more than six decades.
