Kenya signs aviation training deal with FAA

 Kenya has signed a new aviation training deal with the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

In the agreement, the East African School of Aviation (EASA) will become the latest FAA training venue in Africa for teaching Flight Safety Inspector courses.

“EASA is not just a training venue but a partner in Aviation training.

“Initially, the courses will be delivered by FAA staff but eventually local capacity to deliver the courses will be built through Train the Trainers program,” said Capt. Gilbert M Kibe, Director General, KCAA.

 The signing of the training agreement also signifies Kenya’s commitment to the growth and development of Civil Aviation together with improving Flight Safety in Africa, he added.
