The Australian division of the Royal Aeronautical Society has signed up Airservices as a new corporate partner.
Airservices says it will participate in mentoring and professional development programs, as well as “actively contribute to education and information exchange within the aviation industry across Australia and around the world” as part of the partnership.
Airservices executive general manager for air traffic control Greg Hood says the partnership gives the nation’s air traffic manager the opportunity to play a greater role in the aerospace industry.
“We have a strong interest in investing in the development of aviation in Australia, not just for the benefit of Airservices but for the benefit of all Australians,” Hood said in a statement.
“We are also very lucky to have a number of staff who have been recognised and are fellows and members of the society.
“We want to continue to contribute to the conversation about the future of aerospace while partnering with an organisation that has a strong commitment to enhancing best practice and professional development in the aerospace community.”
The official signing of the corporate partnership took place after the Royal Aeronautical Society Australian division business lunch in Sydney on Wednesday, which featured Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce as guest speaker.
