RMIT Training presents at Civil Aviation Summit in Bangkok

Grant Taylor presenting at CASEA.

RMIT Training was recently invited to speak at the Civil Aviation South East Asia Summit (CASEA) held in Bangkok in July.

The event was attended by 120 people across the industry including representatives of airlines, civil aviation authorities, manufacturers, airline training schools and training solutions providers, and pilots and air traffic controllers.

RMIT English Worldwide Regional Manager  Asia Pacific, Grant Taylor, presented on the first day of proceedings.

His topic centred on RMIT Training’s Aviation English training capabilities, with a case study about English for Aircraft Maintenance Personnel. 

“The event provided the opportunity to meet with the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) sector of the aviation industry, airlines and government aviation training centres,” Mr Taylor said. 

“We discussed regulations and best practice in language training for maintenance personnel, who increasingly have to perform their duties in English.” 

The theme for the conference was ‘Preparing the Booming Aviation Industry for Tomorrow’s Growth’.

Due to rapid economic growth and urbanisation in South East Asia, the aviation industry has recorded significant growth over the past few years and established itself as one of the world’s fastest growing aviation markets.

This creates greater demand for aircraft and regional investment in aviation infrastructure.

Top economies in South East Asia are pushing for the development of the aviation sector and to ensure there are adequate MRO facilities and human resources, such as pilots and technical experts, to match this expansion. 

“Maintenance of aircraft and training of such personnel is an integral part due to the growing size of the aviation industry in the region,” Mr Taylor said.

RMIT Training works closely with airlines, air traffic control organisations, civil aviation authorities and aviation training organisations to present comprehensive English language solutions that meet the needs of the aviation sector, with face-to-face and online learning.

Aviation English training products currently offered include Beyond Level 4 for Pilots and Air Traffic Controllers and Radiotelephony English.
