SAKAERONAVIGATSIA sets itself a mission to provide safe flying conditions in Georgian airspace in terms of constant and dynamic development of global air traffic. Our goal is to set safety management systems in accordance with the international standards of aviation and to reduce risk factors of air traffic accidents through the process of organizing air traffic movement.
SAKAERONAVIGATSIA was founded in 1999 as limited liability company. After adopting independence and transiting into self-financing organization, company started rapid developments.
Since 2004, significant changes have taken place that affected each sector of the organization. Major technical re-equipment, implementation of modern systems and staff trainings are some of the advancements ensued in order to meet international standards and to raise safety level. As a result Georgian airspace has become one of the most important parts of the Eurasian air corridor and has increased air traffic flow considerably.
Founded in 1960, today EUROCONTROL, the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation, is a civil-military organization committed to building, together with its partners, a Single European Sky that will deliver the air traffic management (ATM) performance required for the twenty-first century and beyond.
EUROCONTROL provides a range of services to the aviation community including:
- development and coordination of the implementation of European air traffic management (ATM) programmes
- air traffic flow and capacity management
- collection of air navigation charges
- regional control of airspace
- development of new ATM technologies and procedures
- air traffic management training.
Georgia has become the 40th member of EUROCONTROL since January 1, 2014.
SAKAERONAVIGATSIA is constantly upgrading professional level of the staff. Air traffic controllers are studing at the university of ENAC (École Nationale de l'Aviation Civile) in Toulouse, France. Engineers and technicians are also undergoing periodic retraining in order to be able to work and utilize European standard operating systems. Future weather forecasters are being as well trained in England, in UK Met Office. Professionalism is a key priority for Georgian air navigation.
