The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) has signed training agreements with the Civil Aviation Agency of the Republic of Macedonia (MCAA) and the Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority (RCAA) to provide aviation training in both countries.

Under the agreements, the CAAS, through its training arm – the Singapore Aviation Academy – will develop and conduct relevant training programmes to support the development of aviation in Macedonia and Rwanda.

The Agreements were signed by CAAS’ Director General, Kevin Shum; the Director General of the MCAA, Goran Jandreoski; and the Director General of the RCAA, Silas Udahemuka on 7 February 2018.

Shum said, “These collaborations are well aligned with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s ‘No Country Left Behind’ initiative. They will help to develop aviation human capital for the advancement of international civil aviation.”

“Partnering with CAAS will impart aviation knowledge and skills in our nascent human resource, which is a much-needed building block for Rwanda to steadily achieve the required standards for a safe and secure aviation industry,” stated Udahemuka. “The collaboration is also in line with ICAO’s Next Generation of Aviation Professionals (NGAP) initiative, seeking to ensure that enough qualified and competent personnel are available to sustain the global growth of the aviation industry.”
