Using qualified instructors, GATA has trained personnel from Liberia, Nigeria, Gambia, Sao Tome etc in Air Traffic Control courses.It has also trained Aviation Inspectors and other Safety Regulation Personnel in collaboration with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), USA.
GATA is also a convenient place for rental to host aviation related local and international conferences and seminars and many organisations such as the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) – USA, Banjul Accord Group Aviation Safety Oversight Organisation (BAGASOO), African Civil Aviation Commission (AFCAC) and other local organisations have adopted and used our facility to run many courses for their clients.
GATA was established in 2008 under the Ghana Civil Aviation Sector Upgrade Project (GCASUP) situated at the location of the old air traffic control school, which has been in existence since the late 50s with the mandate to train air traffic control assistants for the then civil aviation department. The old building was remodeled into a modern facility and has a state-of-the-art simulator to train Air traffic controllers for Ghana and the sub-region. GATA as an academy came into operation in 2009 and has since organized various Local and International Aviation courses which has since generated considerable interest among countries in the West African Sub-Region and beyond.
GATA’s mission is to provide the Aviation Industry and beyond with competency-based academic and professional staff development.
Developing human capital for the dynamic aviation sector is a key objective for most West African states, highlighting the need to make international expertise and world class training accessible to industry personnel in these regions.
Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) is proud to partner with the International Air Transport association (IATA) to establish a center of excellence for aviation training by expanding its facilities and offering affordable programs delivered by IATA expert instructors.
The courses are designed for participants to enjoy a similar learning experience to that of an IATA overseas center. Courses could be organized in-company at their own convenience to cut the cost of training.
The GCAA Training Academy (GATA) programs will enable aviation personnel in the West African sub-region to gain the internationally recognized skills and best practice knowledge to meeting the evolving challenges and make a direct contribution to industry success.
