ACI announced the official launch of the anticipated Young Aviation Professionals Programme that will attract three talented aviation professionals to Montreal, Canada— the world capital of civil aviation.
At the signing of the memorandum, ACI Director General Angela Gittens commented, "ACI is proud to work alongside ICAO and IATA as we continue to develop professionalism in the industry. The global aviation business is becoming more complex and for the first time this will give the best and the brightest an opportunity to participate in its future development from three perspectives."
As part of the Young Aviation Professionals Programme, each of the three candidates will spend four months at ACI, IATA and ICAO, for a total of 12 months, where they will contribute to and deepen their knowledge and understanding of aviation safety, security and environment, with a focus on the inter-relationships between regulatory activities and the airport and airline industries.
Young Professionals will be accompanied by a personal mentor throughout each leg of the programme and provided with regular performance feedback during and the end of their assignments. After successful conclusion of the programme, the Young Aviation Professionals will be retained on a roster for consideration for potential future employment opportunities with ACI, IATA and ICAO.
Candidates under the age of 35, with a minimum of a Master's degree (or equivalent), and an interest in international civil aviation policy development are encouraged to submit their candidature by completing an online application. Candidates must include a letter of motivation that details their professional achievements to date, overall interest in and suitability for the Programme, and career aspirations in regulatory activities and/or the aviation industry.
