Serco has signed a memorandum of understanding with Micro Nav as the two companies commit to work together to support the training, development and future growth of air traffic controllers globally.
Combined, the firms have over 100 years of experience in air navigation and will use that experience to support their clients in building training programmes that utilise the latest technology and global best practices.
The MOU was signed at the World ATM congress in Madrid by Serco Middle East Chief Executive Officer, Phil Malem and Micro Nav Managing Director, Greg Pile.
Phil Malem, Serco Middle East CEO said, “Serco is a people company, enabled by technology and this is a prime example of a partnership designed to benefit not only our clients, but our people too. Through our years of experience across over 85 aviation sites globally, in operations and training, we have been able to identify gaps in learning and development that can be aided by technology and we are really excited to work with Micro Nav to close that gap and offer extended capability to our clients.”
