Airways and CAMIC aviation training partnership in China

7 May 2014

Airways and CAMIC announce aviation training partnership in China

Airways New Zealand has announced an exclusive partnership with the Civil Aviation Management Institute of China (CAMIC) for the delivery of air traffic control short courses in China.

The announcement has been made at the CANSO Asia Pacific conference in Colombo, Sri Lanka by Airways’ Chief Executive, Ed Sims.

Airways’ Head of Training, Sharon Cooke, says the announcement is significant for the industry as a whole.

“This agreement combines the strengths of two premium industry training organisations, which will result in considerable benefits for our rapidly growing industry,” she says.

“We’re honoured that CAMIC, as a reputable provider of aviation training in China, has chosen Airways as its partner in this programme of significant growth, particularly in the area of congestion and safety training,” says Ms Cooke.
Madam Xiaomei Sun, the President of CAMIC, says the partnership will expand business opportunities in the Chinese market for both organisations.

“We are very confident that by offering these joint ATC courses with enhanced equipment and intensive support, we will create a solid foundation to further our growth into the global aviation training market,” she said.

Airways will supply CAMIC with its world-renowned Total Control simulator as the centre point of the training short courses. Total Control improves training outcomes through the use of state-of-the-art technology, high fidelity realism, and by providing a safe environment in which to practice emergency responses.

CAMIC is the training, research and development arm of the Civil Aviation Authority of China, and provides training in safety-related disciplines for regional Chinese airports. Its strategy includes expanding the college to include ATC training. The partnership with Airways will provide short courses for the professional development of air traffic controllers and airport managers, at CAMIC’s Beijing campus.

Ms Cooke says that partnering with an outstanding organisation such as CAMIC fits with Airways’ global business strategy.

“Airways’ strategy is to become the world’s leading ATC training provider by continuing to invest in research and development, collaborating with partners and seeking innovative solutions to select and train air traffic services personnel better and more quickly,” says Ms Cooke.

“Our partnership with CAMIC allows us to incorporate our recognised competency-based training methodologies into China, furthering the education of regional Chinese controllers and aviation managers.”

The programmes offered to trainees will be based on Airways’ highly successful ATC competency framework, incorporating a blended learning environment with computer-based training tools and the Total Control simulator. Trainees will experience technology-enabled training that is flexible and cost-efficient, with high success rates due to selecting the right competencies and best teaching methodologies.

Airways will commence training at CAMIC in July of this year.
