JAA TO officially relocated to Schiphol-Rijk
Nearby the International Airport to accommodate the recent growth
After 28 years of JAA history in the Dutch town of Hoofddorp, JAA TO (Joint Aviation Authorities Training Organisation) bids adieu to its hometown by relocating to a larger training centre with upgraded facilities, stylish interior design, and more space to accommodate the growing demand for competency-based aviation training.
“JAA has come a long way from its founding objective back in the 1970’s. I believe we have really developed in concert with the needs of the aviation field. I joined as Chairman of the JAA Training Organisation’s Foundation Board shortly after it started operating exclusively as a training organisation and am delighted that we’ve been able to grow to this point. With the recent expansion, JAA TO is taking this opportunity to create a space for learning unlike anything else that exists in regulatory aviation training today. I’ve always had pride in the quality JAA TO has been able to deliver through its courses, and to be able to deliver these in an environment that meets the same quality for highest standards is going to make JAA TO even more effective at what it does”, Alessio Quaranta, Chairman of the JAA TO Foundation Board, Vice President of the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC), Director General of Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC)
The Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA) were among the first initiatives in Europe to harmonise aviation regulations between countries, back in 1970. Their objective was to maintain a cooperative safety regulatory system of the highest standards possible. At the same time, the JAA played the role as the European counterpart to the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Today, the role of the Joint Aviation Authorities as a Training Organisation is to maintain a safe and secure aviation industry by capacitating aviation professionals and organisations with the skills and knowledge they need to work effectively and responsibly. To celebrate this important milestone, JAA TO will be hosting a ceremonial grand opening for invited guests: including long-time aviation regulatory collaborators, and partners to JAA TO in the aviation industry. The ceremony will take place beginning 2020; final dates are still to be announced.
