The Aviation Academy pursues a holistic approach. This means bringing together experts from within the Fraport Group, while linking up with key specialized partners to create a comprehensive learning program. Michael Müller added: “We are very pleased to announce our newest strategic partners, Rosenbauer and SCSI Southern California Safety Institute.”
Rosenbauer is a renowned manufacturer of firefighting equipment, while SCSI is a leading provider of accident investigation and safety training services. They join the Academy’s partners from the Fraport Group, including the FTC Frankfurt fire training center, and Fraport Twin Star in Bulgaria. Slovenian partners include the Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation Board of Slovene Armed Forces (Ministry of Defence), Adria Flight School, Slovenia Control (Slovenia’s air traffic control organization), the University of Maribor’s Faculty of Organizational Sciences, and Slovenia’s Training Centre for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief.
Thomas Uihlein, director of the Fraport Aviation Academy, spoke about the vision for training: “Thanks to the commitment of many people within the Fraport Group, and the cooperation with our partners, the training center has become a reality. We are only at the start of the journey. The long-term goal is not only to pass on knowledge and skills, but to link different areas of aviation into an integrated learning concept. Our vision is to make the Fraport Aviation Academy the leading skills academy for the global aviation industry.” With the opening of the new training center, this process is underway. The Fraport Aviation Academy team boasts more than 100 professionals drawn from the Fraport Group and the strategic partners.
