CAPA Knowledge launches ‘Fundamentals of the Aviation Industry’ training

    CAPA Knowledge launches must-attend training courses in Sydney and Melbourne that will benefit all those or associated with in the aviation industry who have had only a little exposure to airlines – gain vital practical information for airlines, airports, tourism bodies, industry suppliers, lawyers, government regulators, financiers / investors, unions and anyone who wants to understand the workings of this important and complex industry.

    About the Course

    As a large island continent, international and domestic aviation connects Australians with each other and Australia with the rest of the world. It is also central to the Australian economy.

    This course will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of the aviation industry focussing on the structure and workings of airlines and the incredible complexity required to meet the demands of a constantly changing highly technical and high demand market.

    Air travel is a familiar part of many people’s lives. This course highlights the elements of the aviation industry that provide some order in a chaotic and, literally, fast moving industry. From domestic regulations, where each country has complete jurisdiction to regulate the aviation activity within its territory and the air space above; to international regulations requiring bilateral Air Services Agreements setting out what rights can be operated.

    Attendees will gain an understanding of the significance of airline loyalty programs operating worldwide with major airline alliances, an overview of airports, the importance of freight, and the emergence of low-cost carriers around the world.

    Optional Day 2:

    The Day 2 extension course delivers further insight into the aviation industry with additional information including: aircraft financing, freight operations, maintenance and engineering, training requirements, disaster operations, maximising fleet use, and the effects of delays.
