NTU's team asssisted EASA with event held in Barcelona
Training for China's Civil Aviation Administration in Barcelona
As part of the Framework Contract for provision of technical assistance and consultancy services to EASA and under the EU-China Aviation Partnership Project, NTU International has organised a training on General Aviation Flight Experience in Barcelona, Spain from 14th June to 12th July. This three-week training course had the purpose of familiarising staff of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and affiliated entities with General Aviation in Europe. This included providing actual flight experience and the activity was structured in three parts:
- Part 1. General Aviation in Europe: History, philosophy and current regulatory framework
- Part 2. General Aviation Theoretical Training: Crash Course on the Theory of flight
- Part 3. General Aviation Flight Experience: 10 hours of flight training per person with an approved instructor (FI (A)) on a single engine piston aircraft
The event was held at the European Aviation School of Barcelona and the practical training took place at Sabadell Airport. Besides technical expertise, NTU also provided complete logistical arrangements, which ensured the wellfare of the trainees and allowed them to experience a little bit of the local culture. We hope the experience was positive for the trainees and look forward to the two upcoming intakes that are planned to be delivered in October and March 2020.
