The Joint Aviation Authorities Training Organisation (JAA TO), the leading non-profit aviation training organisation providing top-level training courses in multiple fields of aviation safety, and AviAssist, Africa's only independent and also non-profit organisation dedicated solely to the safety improvements in African aviation, have announced a partnership to further expand the AviAssist Safety Promotion Centre (ASPC) in Rwanda.

The partnership aims to establish a long-term mutually beneficial association in capacity building on aviation skills as well as business and leadership skills at the foreseen ASPC in Rwanda.

The ASPC-Rwanda is geared to become (East) Africa's leading aviation safety resource centre, making Rwanda and States in the East and Southern African ICAO region more self-sufficient at safety promotion. The centre imparts training and safety training that is crucial to support aviation experts in their role as safety leaders and champions.

Paula V. de Almeida, Director of JAA TO: “We are very pleased to launch this cooperation. JAA TO is committed to promoting the aviation safety around the world and this partnership helps us to achieve this goal in the high-growth African Region. The vision of ASPC is perfectly in line with JAA TO’s mission and vision to increase the safety in the region and globally.”

“We are thrilled to be able to bring the expertise, reputation and legacy of the JAA TO to our work in Africa”, said Tom Kok, Director of AviAssist. “It is an unique opportunity to combine our safety promotion experience in Africa with the rich training capabilities of the JAA TO. This partnership will bring great benefits for the continuous professional development that the Foundation brings to Africa.”
