Event details

Aviation Basics - Workshop at I Have Learned Academy This Intensive 3-hour course aims to provide an in-depth overview to the air transport world. It enables the participants to better understand the regulations, the roles and perspectives of the different actors in this industry: airport operators, airlines, air traffic control, as well as regulators and organisation. This course is designed for new entrants in the industry, Amateurs and travel geeks and people who fear flying, as well as for qualified experts desiring to have a refresher on some of the specific complex topics.

After a short introduction in the aviation organisation and regulations, the functions and operations of each stakeholder are first presented in a practical and simple manner:
What are the challenges of airport landside and airside operations? How is a typical day in the cockpit? What is the role of air traffic control in traffic regulation and safety? This and many questions are answered in this training course with hands-on examples.
Then, the different – often conflicting – objectives and perspectives of the key-players are discussed, together with the basic principles that enable a fair and efficient collaboration.
At the end of the course the participant should have a basic overview about international aviation including all different stakeholders and the corresponding technical solutions and operational procedures of Airports and Airlines.
