The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) granted an international training license to four Saudi trainers from the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA), bringing the number of internationally accredited Saudi trainers to 7 in the field of aviation security.
The licenses reflect the ability of qualified Saudi cadres who are capable in their specialties to exchange experiences and highlight the role of GACA as an effective partner in the civil aviation industry at the international level.
GACA indicated that it has prepared many programs aimed at refining and training national cadres according to the highest international standards, noting that the international achievement clearly reflects the Kingdom's expertise that has contributed permanently to the development of the field of civil aviation. This will enhance the Kingdom's leading role in the field of aviation security internationally and supports training and capacity building programs organized by the ICAO.
It is worth noting that the Kingdom continues to provide technical and material support to ICAO’s programs and plans, plus the participation of Saudi experts in specialized working groups and committees. The Kingdom also hosts the permanent headquarters of the ICAO Regional Safety Oversight Organization for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA RSOO). This in addition to hosting and financing the permanent headquarters of the ICAO’s Cooperative Aviation Security Program - Middle East (CASP-MID).
