What Does GANS Do


GANS Training Academy is the first institution to gain regulatory accreditation from the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) as an ATS Training Organisation. More than 6,155 students have graduated in different disciplines of Air Traffic Services since our opening. The Training Academy has also achieved the status of an ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) Regional Training Centre of Excellence for ANS training.

Our courses reflect a flexible and practical approach to training, and we utilise state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, including distance-learning solutions. Our courses can be tailored to suit our clients’ particular needs in terms of both content and duration.

As a testament to our successful approach to training, we have developed an online delivery platform, which combines the use of a Learning Management System with the benefits of real-time, interactive communication. In this virtual classroom, our instructors will be able to explain, show presentations, ask questions, and hold discussions with course participants. Trainees will be able to interact with their instructor and with each other, share their ideas, experiences, and written work, and receive feedback.

In addition to core air traffic service disciplines, we deliver courses developed specifically for individual Aviation and Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs). All training packages are kept up to date with the latest concepts and advances within the industry and can be modified with location-specific context. Training courses can be delivered at our Training Academy in Al Ain (in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi), at the clients’ premises, or via distance learning.

The Training Academy also offers a variety of general and aviation English language courses, which can be tailored to meet our trainees’ specific learning needs.

Facilities at the Training Academy are bright and welcoming. Comfortable classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards, and trainees have ready access to a CBT room, prayer rooms, canteen, library, and a campus nurse.
