The opening ceremony of Maldivian Aviation Academy has been held at Maldives National University (MNU) yesterday (December 28, 2021). Vice President, Faisal Naseem participated as the Chief Guest with Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation Aishath Nahula, and senior officials from Island Aviation and MNU present in the ceremony. 

Speaking at the ceremony, the Vice President shed light on the efforts of the administration to address the numerous concerns and challenges faced by the Maldivian student pilots enrolled in training programmes in the Maldives. He said the new flight training school inaugurated is a testament to those efforts. 

Highlighting the progress of the aviation industry in the country, the Vice President spoke about the importance attached by President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih and his administration to human resources development and capacity building. He concluded his speech by urging students who will be studying at the new flight training school to make the most of this opportunity and to work together in order to give good service when they enter the industry. 

Managing Director of Maldivian, Mohamed Mihad said that it is a happy day for the aviation students, national airline, Maldivian and MNU as they have all come together to open this aviation academy after an uncertain period for the students.  

The Maldivian Aviation Academy is a collaboration between Island Aviation Services Ltd., MNU, and the Czech Republic-based Flying Academy. The flying school's programmes are now open for enrolment; however, student pilots who have had to discontinue their training for a variety of reasons will be given precedence.
