Fraport Slovenija Aviation Academy
Fraport AG is among the leading groups of companies in the international airport business. The company operates one of the world's most important air transportation hubs at Frankfurt Airport, along with other airports worldwide. This successful airport management is based on many years of extensive experience in the field of airside and terminal management, ORAT (Operational Readiness and Airport Transfer), airport strategy, retail management, the operation of airport infrastructure, and airport development. Furthermore, we have sound expertise in the area of ground handling.
Fraport Group, one of the world's leading airport management groups, fully believes and invests in the training of its staff and its subsidiaries in all fields of aviation. Expert knowledge and consistent performance can only be achieved by a long-term commitment to quality training. For this reason, the Aviation Academy (AAC) is being established at one of Fraport AG's subsidiaries, Fraport Slovenija (ex. Aerodrom Ljubljana), which has received the mandate to operate the new Academy to meet training requirements within the Fraport Group, as well as from external customers.
Fraport Aviation Academy offers training in airport management, rescue and firefighting, and ground handling – training areas where Fraport and Fraport Slovenija (previously Aerodrom Ljubljana) have already been active for some years.
For us, safety is the most important aspect of aviation. We have therefore developed a large number of rescue and firefighting training programmes. Our staff of highly experienced and professional instructors provide specialized training programmes in all areas of fire protection and emergency management. One of our greatest strengths lies in our ability to customize training programmes to meet the particular training needs of our clients, based on national and international recommended regulations and standards. Our training programmes are developed and presented to ensure that our clients receive the highest quality of training, meeting international fire and emergency services training standards. Our instructors are firefighting professionals with extensive hands-on experience across all sectors, including civil and military aviation and industrial firefighting operations.
The vision of the Aviation Academy is to become the leading skills academy within the worldwide aviation industry. Not only do we want to pass on knowledge, but also to link different areas of aviation into an integrated learning concept, and therefore, in the future, expand the scope of services to other fields, such as airlines, authorities and air traffic control.
