Introduction Course Aviation

What does the Dutch aviation sector look like?

How can an aircraft continue to fly (technically and economically)?

What will happen in the aircraft and airport industry in the coming years?

Every year the NAG organizes an introduction course for new employee’s within the aviation sector. The aim of this  course is to provide participants with an introduction to the aviation sector and the position of the Netherlands in the international aviation market in one day. It’s often not easy for companies and organizations to free up time for updating employees who are new to this sector. However, it is important that employees have the basic knowledge of the sector, the market and the most important players in it. Topics that will be discussed include the current state of the Dutch aviation industry, trends and developments within the sector.

The presentations are given by experts who have years of experience within the sector. The course takes place on the 16th of April from 9:00 until 18:30 (lunch and dinner included) at the  Aviation Theme Park Aviodrome in Lelystad.

For whom is the course?

  • For (new) employees who just started working within the aviation sector.
  • Employees who have been working in this sector for some time and who want to broaden and update their view.
