EAN’s operations and management personnel participated in over eleven in-house and international aviation training sessions covering Safety Management Systems, Air Transport of Dangerous Goods, Aviation Security, Ramp Safety, Organization Indoctrination and Procedures, Aircraft Systems and Types, Emergency Response and IS-BAH Fundamental Awareness. The team also underwent the National Air Transport Association (NATA) Professional Line Service Training (PLST), both initial and renewal.
