Study for the creation of an aviation and meteorology Academy in Republic of Côte d'Ivoire

Authorities in Republic of Côte dIvoire are planning to create an aviation and meteorology Academy in Abidjan to meet the training needs of the countrys different civil aviation stakeholders (airport, air navigation, meteorology, air operations, and aeronautic maintenance).
As the managing company of Abidjan International Airport, Aeria decided to finance the initiative in the framework of its concession activities. Egis was awarded a contract with Aeria for this purpose and a team within Egis Avia subsidiary was designated to conduct a preliminary study to:
  • define the objectives of the Academy;
  • assess the associated requirements;
  • evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of the training courses;
  • calculate the inherent budget to fulfil the project.
This study should be a preliminary step to trigger the Côte dIvoire Authorities validation. If the project is green-lighted, Egis Avia will provide an additional study to outline the content of the training courses and the associated resources (human and material) and to prepare the construction or refurbishment phase of the dedicated building (especially elaboration of the tender documents). The project is of critical importance for Côte dIvoire as it responds to growing civil aviation training needs fuelled by air transport development in the region. It should improve the local training means and ensure enhanced compliance with European and/or International Civil Aviation Organisations training standards. Besides, it should reduce the local dependence to foreign institutes and attract trainees and students from other countries civil aviation administrations, air navigation service providers, airport authorities or airlines. Thanks to an extensive experience in the Côte dIvoire context and a solid expertise in aeronautic training engineering, Egis Avia stands as a valuable partner to achieve this project.
