YOUNG engineers from Oman will be receiving specialist training from air traffic management company NATS.
The firm, which has a base in Swanwick and offices in Whiteley, will train delegates from Muscat and Salalah airports.
They will be attending a 16-week course at NATS’ college.
Each day will begin with an English language lesson followed by air traffic safety training.
The Omani Public Authority of Civil Aviation aims for all its engineers to achieve high-level skills by 2016 as part of its modernisation and transformation programme.
Saleh Abdullah Nasser Al-Harthy, director air navigation services at PACA, said: ‘Aviation in Oman is going through a rapid transformation and PACA is making huge investments in our technology, infrastructure and most importantly our people.
‘NATS has an excellent track record and it is of enormous benefit for our young engineers to be working with them.’
