LGS to train Azerbaijan’s ATC provider technical staff

State joint stock company “Latvijas gaisa satiksme” has signed a new contract  with “Azerbaijan Hava Yollari”, provider of air traffic control (ATC) services in Azerbaijan, for the training of technical personnel (ATSEP) in 2023. At LGS, Azerbaijani colleagues will take a practical ATSEP on-the-job training instructor (OJTI) course. In turn, an LGS instructor will visit Baku to assist colleagues in taking a GNSS course. A course on digital technology will be provided remotely.

“Cooperation with “Azerbaijan Hava Yollari” proves that LGS is able to provide quality training to air navigation service providers from other countries. In the current situation, where the flow of flights through Latvian air space has significantly decreased, providing training services to foreign partners is also an opportunity to increase revenues,” admits Dāvids Tauriņš, Chairman of the Board of LGS.

The cooperation between LGS and Azerbaijan’s ATC service provider began several years ago, and each year groups of technical staff from the Caucasus country expand their knowledge in Latvia.
