This contract confirms the development of ENAC (Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile) in the ASEAN zone in which ENAC has already signed two training agreements with the Indonesian Air Navigation Service Providers (Air Nav Indonesia) and PT Angkasa Pura II.
The latter cooperation includes providing education and training of the human resources in air transport and, in particular, the following items:
The Head of Human Resource Development for Transportation Agencies (HRDTA), Mr. Utomo, also known as Tommy, explained that with the rapid development of the aviation industry, the Ministry of Transportation (BPSDMP) must continue to increase the capabilities of its human resources.
“We hope that the educational program of ENAC namely Master Degree Programmes, Institutional Cooperation Programmes, and Transfer of Knowledge or Technology to the faculty at the air transport school will soon be realized," said Tommy.
Tommy said HRDTA chose ENAC as its cooperation partner because he wanted to improve the standards of lecturers and instructors in accordance with international standards as well as improving quality standards at its Aviation School in Indonesia (STPI).
"We will send 2 people from each department at STPI starting next year and also develop short courses for the management of academic and flight institutions such that the governance of STPI will improve and be able to produce better quality graduates," said Tommy.
Tommy explains the annual growth in air traffic will be around 70 aircraft in Indonesia. The development of airports was the result of rapid growth of air traffic. As such, qualified and professional air transport human resources are much needed. "In this case, the ability of the human resources to handle the increased load has to be improved in order to improve aviation safety," said
To meet these demands, it needs the support from all parties to have a positive impact on aviation safety in Indonesia.
"Such support not only come from domestic but also from international organizations such as EASA, FAA, CAA, and others, and now we are working together with ENAC," said Tommy.
BPSDMP is the governance body responsible for human resource development through aviation education and flight training to increase flight safety.
Thus, Tommy stated that the cooperation between BPSDM and ENAC is urgently needed to support the development of air transportation in Indonesia.
Before the signing, Mr. Houalla have visited STPI and Mr. Houalla expressed his admiration for the quality of facilities and infrastructure at STPI. "Hopefully in the future, the lecturers at the STPI may soon follow our programs," said Mr. Houalla.
He also pinpointed the fact that through this agreement with the Indonesian Ministry of Transportation, "ENAC is supporting the government's program to improve flight safety".
“We are very proud of having been chosen to deliver training to such a major country in the air transport world such as Indonesia. Those partnerships will help to develop the next generation of aviation professionals in Indonesia which experiences one of the world highest air traffic growth rate"
said Marc HOUALLA.
