Since the start of the NAVacademy project in 2017, our trainings have been attended by dozens of participants. It is an honor for us to prepare further trainings for you. We would like to thank our clients and business partners:
It was a pleasured to attend this year’s conference. I have positively evaluated the professional level, selection and expertise of presentations and lecturers, as well as the opportunity to meet great people from the area and share our experiences with each other. It was an exceptional experience for me in every way and I am already looking forward to next year.
„Within the NAVacademy project, we attended the FLIGHT OPS conference in April 2022 focused on the latest significant changes and innovations in air traffic (Free Route Airspace), Flight Permission Management (CDM and slots), cyber security and many others. The conference was divide igned in several modules, which were professionally covered at a very high level. The FLIGHT OPS conference is a professional forum where operators have a unique opportunity to meet each other and exchange valuable experiences, as well as to obtain information directly from the source in a simple and understandable way. “
“We really like your trainings. We see them as a big plus in that they save us a lot of time. … This way we can calmly focus on our work and be 100% sure that the training given to our new dispatchers will be exactly as we expect it…
… There are situations where new employees can at first feel a little disappointed about being sent away from our company right at the start, but as soon as they learn how the training is done at NAV, then they are happy that they would like it to go on even longer. The entire training at NAV is very positive and promotes the desire for more work…”
After an intensive three-week training at NAVacademy, and in combination with my own intensive studies, I was able within a month after starting my career in aviation to work as a dispatcher for Air Bohemia and to handle situations connected to flight planning without any major complications.
