“Taking into account the modern challenges of civil aviation, we want to expand our capabilities to provide the industry with high-quality specialists, starting work on the creation of an advanced regional training aviation centre in Astana. Its construction is planned to begin next year,” Bekturov said.

“We plan that the centre will become a regional institute, where aviation specialists from all countries of Central Asia will improve their knowledge and effectiveness of their work. The centre will introduce aviation training technologies based on ICAO courses. Close cooperation with world civil aviation organisations, as well as establishing a partnership with existing recognised institutions in the field of professional training will be one of the factors of the successful operation of our training centre,” he concluded.

Deputy Chairperson of the Civil Aviation Committee of Kazakh Ministry for Investments and Development Toty Amirova noted that financing for the centre has not been determined but KazAeroNavigatsia will fund part of the project.
