Flight Data Monitoring
Nairobi, Kenya/ 4-5 November US$ 400
This unique in-region course will provide you with a solid appreciation of the technical,
operational, management and legal issues surrounding Flight Data Management (FDM). FDM helps pilots, managers and operators improve the
safety and efficiency of their flights by identifying hidden flaws and potential risks
in their daily operations. FDM is now also coming to the world of glass cockpit equipped Cessna Caravans, Jetstreams etc. This course is held at Wilson Airport in co-operation with industry leader Flight Data Services.
Aviation Mental Health
Nairobi, Kenya / 4-5 November – US$ 350
Internationally, ICAO, leading regulators and aviation psychology associations are adopting new standards to improve how our industry deals with mental health issues. This follows a number of occurences that resulted from intentional actions by flight crew or some related situation. These include the Germanwings 9525 crash in 2015 and the LAM Mozambique flight 470 in 2013.

In this course, we provide participants with knowledge and understanding of mental wellbeing in the aviation industry and how to identify and address issues that impact the safety performance of aviation personnel. Following our over-subscribed launch edition of this course last year, we are happy to bring the course back to Africa once again this year.

This is the only course of its kind in Africa and a must attend event for aviation medical examiners, government safety inspectors, chiefs of flight operations, crew planners, cabin crew managers, human resource managers and safety managers.

Flight operations officer – dispatch course

Most countries of the world work with flight operations officers that support the captain in her/his flight preparations.
During this 5 days training, you will gain the knowledge about aviation operations that you will need to succeed as a flight operations officer. You will get a good understanding of the organization of a flight operations department and gain practical skills for the tasks and responsibilities of a flight operations officer.

The course is offered in co-operation with aircraft manufacturer ATR from Toulouse in France. ATR has a long and proven track record in providing flight operations – dispatch training. The course design follows ATR’s dispatcher’s course and ICAO standards as laid down in Doc7192 part D3. It will contribute to enhanced performance of duties and responsibilities at an Airline Operations Centre (AOC).
This is the right course for you if you are a flight operations officer, ab-initio staff at an AOC, a new hire as a flight operations officer, a flight support manager and a flight crew member.

Human Factors in Aviation
Nairobi, Kenya / 11-13 November – US$ 350
Human performance is fundamental to operational safety in aviation as the majority of incidents and accidents are attributable to human error. This course introduces participants to the principles of human factors awareness, the factors that affect personal performance and how the human element interfaces with equipment, the working environment, the tools to be used and the organizational context.

The AviAssist Foundation has been providing effective and affordable safety support to the African aviation industry since 1995. It is the only non-profit organisation dedicated to providing impartial, independent, expert safety guidance and resources to Africa’s aviation industry.

We realise our incredible rates by deploying practising professional volunteers and support from the airlines for their transport and the hosting of our events as important pillars of our independent, non-profit status.

When it comes to our courses, our impact is that we bring courses and events for which there are currently no commercially feasible alternatives in the countries or sub-regions where the events are held. You can read more about our ‘after course support’ for our learners in our course catalogue that you can access by clicking here.

Please be mindful of the fact that all courses have a very limited number of places to ensure excellent facilitator-learner interaction. Registration is on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.

The Foundation is continuing course delivery in various locations in Africa while it is working on the implementation of its AviAssist Safety Promotion Center (ASPC) in Rwanda. The ASPC-Rwanda is growing into East Africa’s leading resource centre for safety promotion, with training courses and safety research being just some of the services offered.
