Vietjet Aviation Academy is now officially the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) regional training partner in Vietnam. This comes after IATA and Vietjet Air inked the agreement, marking yet another milestone in Vietjet’s history books.

As the regional training partner, Vietjet Aviation Academy will offer IATA training courses designed by industry experts. These courses are internationally recognised training programs and are updated frequently to keep pace with the latest regulatory procedures, new standards, and the fast-changing demands in the aviation industry.

This partnership between Vietjet Aviation Academy and IATA is in line with Vietjet’s sustainable development roadmap, research and application of aviation science and technology, training professional and creative aviation human resources.

“We are delighted to enter this partnership with Vietjet Aviation Academy to provide training in Vietnam. Having enough trained personnel is crucial in helping the aviation industry recover from COVID-19. Our cooperation with Vietjet Aviation Academy will further support the development of aviation talents in Vietnam and in the region,” said Philip Goh, Regional Vice President for Asia – Pacific of IATA.

Vietjet Aviation Academy is the leading modern training and research institute not just in this region but globally. It currently owns three cockpit simulators (SIM) for pilot training, aircraft and passenger cabin mockups, engines, technical parts and functional training rooms, an olympic standard wave pool, a stadium, and engineer training center that meet the international standard training programs for pilots, cabin crews, rosters, engineers, and aviation staffs.

“Human resources are always the focus of Vietjet’s development plans as well as the aviation industry in general. At Vietjet Aviation Academy, we are providing our trainees with the best learning environment, where everyone can attend IATA courses, receive IATA international certificates and access the most modern training equipment in the aviation industry,” said Luong The Phuc, Vietjet Vice President and Chairman of Vietjet Aviation Academy.

To date, Vietjet Aviation Academy has trained nearly 395,000 trainee pilots, cabin crews, engineers, and staff. The academy not only meets the training and human resource development needs of Vietjet Air but also accommodates the aviation industry globally.

With the vision of a pioneering academy in aviation training, a strategic location in the region and the world, and aligned with IATA Training internationally recognized programs, Vietjet Aviation Academy will be a gathering place for international students to practice, study, create and conquer their dreams of flying and conquering the sky.
