Temporary aviation training facility in Ghana
GAPTEK will provide one of its modular buildings to Aerojet to accommodate the technician training courses in Ghana.
GAPTEK has partnered with Aerojet Aviation on the construction of its new Temporary Aviation Training Facility in Ghana.
The Facility which is part of the larger Accra MRO Project being developed by Aerojet at the Kotoka International Airport in Ghana will allow the first batch of African Technicians to begin training in Q1 2023 ahead of the completion of the MRO facility.
The building designed and built by Gaptek has a surface area of 1,110m² distributed over two levels, comprising 2 workshops, 3 classrooms, learning resource & IT centre and administrative offices.
The prefabricated building will be assembled on site just in 8 weeks (with MEP’s installation included), and all project time frame will be only 23 weeks after the design phase (including production, Transport, Assembly and MEP’s).
According to the CEO of Aerojet Aviation Limited Mazisi Parkes “Aerojet is commited to building sustainably and efficiently on all construction related to the Accra MRO Project.
Our choice of Gaptek to deliver this first facility for training our technicians was based on both the versatility and green credentials of their technology. Having assessed and inspected Gaptek’s solutions, we are convinced that the speed of delivery, quality of the construction and the ability to easily repurpose and relocate the building provides us with a flexibility that is inherent in the delivery of our business model and sustainability objectives.
THE PROJECT OF AEROJET. A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR THE GHANA AND AFRICAN AVIATION SECTOR.
According to what was communicated on the official website of Aerojet Aviation Ltd. (www.aerojet-aviation.com) Aerojet Aviation Training Academy is a key part of the MRO project in Accra.
The start of the course, which will be certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) as well as the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), is scheduled for the first quarter of 2023 and will provide first class education and training in the maintenance of commercial aircraft to ensure compliance with the strict safety standards within the industry.
According to the CEO of Aerojet Aviation, Mr. Mazisi Parkes; “It is the beginning of a very important process for many young Ghanaians and Africans in general; we remain determined to provide opportunities for young people in the aviation industry. Our training academy together with our partners will continue to launch various training programs to prepare and qualify young people for long-term careers in the industry.”
Aerojet has planned an impressive growth program for MRO activities in Ghana and is currently forging important partnerships that will ensure the successful implementation of this project.
