Duties and Responsibilities
THE ORGANIZATIONAL SETTING

The challenge of inadequate Aviation professionals is prevalent globally and more so in the AFI Region.
ICAO Aviation Safety and Security Audits, have identified the lack of qualified aviation personnel as one of the common deficiency and root cause for low scores in the average Effective Implementation (EI) of critical elements (CEs) of a State oversight system, hence low levels of compliance with ICAO SARPs in many African States.
This adversely impedes States’ fulfilment of their international obligations under the Chicago Convention and effective participation in the global aviation market.

The enhancement of aviation human resource capacity in Africa remains a key component of the deliverables of the AFI Region initiatives including: the Comprehensive Regional Implementation Plan for Aviation Safety in Africa (AFI Plan), the Comprehensive Implementation Plan for Aviation Security and Facilitation in Africa (AFI SECFAL Plan) and the African Human Resource Development Fund (HRDF).

This issue, which has been consistently presented and discussed at global and regional forums, including the ICAO Assembly, AFI week events, regional workshops/ seminars etc., continues to be a primary hindrance to States performance and compliance to ICAO SARPs and the efforts to develop a robust and resilient Civil Aviation sector in Africa.

The AFI Plan, AFI SECFAL Plan and HRDF Steering/Management Committees have persistently called for a lasting and sustainable solution to the long-standing anomaly of aviation experts to support the oversight and operational functions of aviation.

In order to have a structured and comprehensive approach to address the Aviation professionals challenge, the AFI Plan Steering Committee (SC) requested African Aviation Training Organization (AATO) and ICAO GAT to identify aviation training needs in Africa.

Subsequently, AATO developed the African Aviation Training Roadmap indicating aviation training needs in Africa, which was approved by the AFI Plan SC in May 2019 (Uganda).
However, the implementation of the roadmap has not yet started due to AATO’s critical financial and institutional challenges prior and following COVID-19.

In addition, some AFI States, AFCAC, AFI Plan and AFI SECFAL Plan SCs have identified the need for data collection on aviation professionals related to Safety, Air Navigation, Security and Facilitation and performance of a gap analysis and a forecast of the needs of the aviation sector in Africa.
