GCAA’s Training Academy receives ICAO Trainair Plus Silver Membership | The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has awarded Ghana the prestigious Trainair Plus Silver membership in recognition of its exceptional contributions to aviation training within the West African sub-region.

The award was presented to Ghana’s Minister of Transport, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, at the ICAO Global Implementation Support Symposium.

The ceremony, held in Punta Cana, saw ICAO Council President Salvatore Sciacchitano and ICAO Secretary General Juan Carlos Salazar jointly presenting the award to Minister Asiamah.

He accepted the honour on behalf of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), which oversees the Ghana Civil Aviation Training Academy (GATA).

The symposium, themed “Optimizing Aviation Capacity: Strategies for Safe Skies, Sustainable Future,” focused on pivotal implementation support activities aimed at enhancing aviation safety and sustainability.

During the event, discussions highlighted the role of continuous learning and emerging technologies in driving effective capacity-building projects.

GATA’s transition into the new membership recognition framework followed its performance in the Trainair Plus Program (TTP) in 2023. The academy generated sufficient training miles to successfully achieve Silver Membership status in 2024.

This recognition allows GATA to host ICAO Trainair Plus courses and promote an affordable, competency-based approach to aviation training. GCAA’s Training Academy receives ICAO Trainair Plus Silver Membership
