Represented by Mr. Louis Kweku Opuku as ICAO Auditor for International Standards and Procedures – ICAO Universal Safety Oversight Audit Program, visited the Jakarta Aviation Training Center facility. The visit was conducted as one of the series of ICAO Audit for air transport safety supervision function in Indonesia.

In its capacity to oversee the civil aviation safety level of a country, ICAO maps 8 (eight) aspects of air safety, including Indonesia, where one of the eight aspects is Personal Licensing. For Personal Licensing, ICAO appoints JATC to be the representative of Indonesia for confirmation and verification to measure the compliance level in the Personal Licensing aspect.

“An honor for JATC has been chosen by ICAO to be visited as well as looking directly for surveys and verification. For JATC, quality (Quality) and Safety (Safety) quality are part of our daily value, so we are quite confident that JATC has complied with all the terms set by ICAO. And we are also proud, JATC can represent Indonesia on the occasion of USOAP (Universal Safety Oversight Audit Program) from ICAO. This success can not be separated from the guidance and directives attached to this from DKPPU (Directorate of Airworthiness and Aircraft Operations) and the Directorate of Flight Navigation that overshadowed JATC, “said Mr. Arif Syafrie as President Director of Jakarta Aviation Training Center (JATC).

Training will be delivered at JATC’s campus, located next to the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta, as well as Aviation Australia’s campus located next to the Brisbane International Airport.

Students will complete the first six months of their European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approved basic training course (B1.1) in Jakarta, before transferring to Brisbane to complete the remaining 12 months. The Brisbane based training is inclusive of practical training and live aircraft maintenance training.

Successful students will graduate with a Diploma of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering and an EASA Part 66 Certificate of Recognition.

“Indonesia is a very important player in the global aviation industry and has experienced massive growth over the past decade,” stated Bill Horrocks, CEO of Aviation Australia.

“Our collaboration with JATC is a very important strategic partnership for our business and we look forward to working closely to develop world class engineers, trained to the very stringent EASA standard, to meet the ever growing needs of the Indonesian aviation industry. Our mission statement is ‘Delivering excellence in training to help shape the future of the aviation industry worldwide’ and this move into the Indonesian market ensures that we are delivering on this goal.”

Allan Brooks, Aviation Australia General Manager, was in Jakarta for the signing of the auspicious agreement with Arif Syafrie, Jakarta Aviation Training Center Chief Executive Officer.

“This partnership with Aviation Australia to deliver EASA Part 147 training is another step in the expansion of the JATC business.

The first intake of Indonesian students is scheduled to begin training in September this year, with agreements already in place with local organisations to recruit directly for this course.

“We have prepared a platform for the career of the students by signing agreements with Indonesian MRO’s and airlines. We have more meetings scheduled over the next few weeks to make sure our graduates have a secure future in the industry. So far, we are receiving very positive feedback regarding our ability to provide local graduates for our EASA course. JATC are a trusted, local, training provider and our expanded capability is very good for the Indonesian aviation industry,” said Syafrie.
