Aviation sector is growing at a great pace and training qualified human resources, which is one of the most basic needs of this growing sector, is possible with effective training policies which has high quality standards that are recognized in international arena. 

In this context, we, as “HEAŞ Aviation Academy”, aim to provide theoretical and practical training services, particularly to our own personnel, and to our other partners in Civil Aviation Sector and also to people, institutions and organizations with wishes that can be fulfilled, with qualified trainers and training programs, to became a modern, effective and internationally-preferred “Training Institution” which trains personnel for the sector and its institution.

To become a training institution that 
-    aims to increase efficiency and productivity,

-    success oriented,

The provision of safety, trustworthiness and high quality factors in aviation sector is directly proportional with the training of the personnel working in this area.

Today, the international rules in aviation, adherence to these rules, the diversity of production, rapid technological advancements and the fact that aviation trainings are not included enough in other training institutions and/or don’t match up with each other made the “in-house training aviation” concept a necessity. In civil aviation sector, there is training requirements at every level and employee profiles which are defined to those requirements. Therefore; other than the occupational or branch trainings which are given to the employees in the educational institutions that they graduated from, the trainings which have to be given after they join to an aviation company, have to be certified, followed-up and renewed are obligatorily defined by authorities. The persons who don’t possess these competences cannot work in the sector. Our purpose is, firstly to share the big picture in the aviation sector with our internal and foreign customers, and to clearly explain role and responsibilities of the institution that the participant represents and the participant him/herself in this picture, and at the same time, ensure that an informed aviation sector employee starts working by blending all those information with the high quality standards and team culture of aviation. 

The principles to implement in order to reach the training goals are as follows; 
1.    Correctly analyzing and determining the needs of the organization which will receive the training 
2.    Ensuring that the training is continuous and sustainable,
3.    Making the training programs in line with the purposes and goals of the internal and foreign customers, 
4.    Providing equal opportunity in trainings, 
5.    Executing the training in accordance with efficiency and productivity principles, 
6.    Determining, implementing and evaluating the effective training methods, 
7.    Making sure that training environment is suitable to training requirements,
8.    Perpetuating Kaizen philosophy in training
