The academy, to be set up in collaboration with academia and industry, will identify skill gaps, design and run courses with EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) and DGCA (Directorate general of Civil Aviation) certifications.
The academy will offer long-duration basic-training programmes for young students and vocational training and short-duration courses tailor-made for industry requirements for experienced technicians, said an official statement.
The MoU was signed between Jerome Verschave, General Manager, Aero Campus, and Jayesh Ranjan, Secretary, Information Technology, government of Telangana.
