UKOMA Sets further Training Course dates

After an impressive uptake for the 2014 Train the Trainer, Operations Officer Course and Aviation Weather Course, UKOMA is pleased to announce course dates for 2015.

Due to high popularity of this year’s Operations Officer Course, the member operators have decided to run this course twice in 2015, during the months of March and November.   The Operations Officer course covers a introduction to the Operations Control environment and covers vital subjects such as Legislation, Flight Planning, Weight and Balance, Aircraft Performance, Aviation Weather, Security, Airport Slots, Disruption Management and Emergency Response.   The course sets our students up well for a future career in aviation.  More info on the Operations Officer course can be found here [Course Overview]

A new two day Eurocontrol course has been added covering an introduction to Network Management Operations (NM),  Integrated Flight Plan System (IFPS) and the systems our operators use (NOP/CHMI).  The course will be hosted by Eurocontrol in February 2015 at their Brussels Head Quarters and will include a tour of their facilities. 

In addition UKOMA have also planned another Train the Trainer Course in 2015, again led by Plane Training and an additional Aviation Weather Course led by the Met Office. 

The 2015 course timetable is below and UKOMA hope to add further courses in the near future.   For further details please email
