Airways Aviation ESMA signed a strategic partnership agreement with IAAG – Institut Aéronautique Amaury de la Grange, bringing together two aviation training organizations in France.
The partnership has 3 main goals: 1) To increase geographic coverage of both companies by sharing their current facilities in Paris, Lille and Montpellier. 2) To offer more and differentiated courses in the market, such as Pilot, Maintenance Technician, Cabin Crew and others. 3) To develop joint offers to international customers particularly in the European and African regions.
The agreement was signed in Paris by Mathilde Michel, Chief Executive Officer of Elysees Education Group, owner of IAAG and by Captain Mauro Calvano, President of Airways Aviation ESMA and CEO Europe & Africa Airways Aviation Group.
"This promising collaboration fosters excellent synergies and offers new prospects in terms of geographical locations, educational innovation and international openness, thus contributing to the advancement and quality of aeronautical training,” said Brigadier-General (Ret) Jean-Marc Vigilant.
“Our capabilities are completely complementary in terms of courses and locations and by putting them together we will be able to offer much more to the market. It’s an unparalleled offer in terms of course portfolio that includes pilot, cabin crew and maintenance technician among others, and in terms of coverage with locations in Paris, Lille and Montpellier,” said Alexandre Alves, Global COO & CCO Airways Aviation Group. “With this joint venture we will be closer to the market and with bigger training capability, offering solutions not only to all that have the dream of joining aviation but also to the companies in the industry who are in need of high numbers of qualified staff,” continued Alves.
