Posted 21 February 2017 · Add Comment

The International Air Transport Association (IATA), in cooperation with the École nationale de l'aviation civile (ÉNAC), announced the expansion of their aviation training and education partnership to include aviation research and studies.

IATA and ENAC agreed to:

    Jointly plan new advanced master programs by aviation sector (airlines and ANSPs) to be offered as of 2018

    Collaborate on research projects in areas such as air traffic management (ATM), big data and remotely piloted aircraft systems, or RPAS (often referred to as drones)

    Create internship opportunities for ENAC Master/PHD students to carry out research in support of projects of interest to IATA/ENAC. 

“Aviation needs research to identify innovative solutions to meet the needs of a growing industry. A particular focus of our partnership with ENAC is gaining the benefits of technology integration into daily operations. More broadly, IATA and ENAC are blending industry expertise with academic rigor to help current aviation professionals keep pace with changes and to ensure that the next generation joins the industry well-prepared for its many challenges,” said Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s director general and CEO.

The IATA-ENAC courses, delivered 50/50 by each partner, will be given in IATA’s Geneva offices and in ENAC’s Toulouse campus; more locations will be added in the future.

“ENAC’s relationship with IATA is an important building block for the future of the industry. We are honored to not only continue our successful collaboration, but to expand it to reach even more students and even more talented aviation professionals. Our partnership provides an exclusive opportunity to learn from the brightest in the industry at one of the top universities in the world,” said Marc Houalla, ENAC President.
