Civil Aviation Academy names the reasons for suspension of license

The Civil Aviation Academy (CAA) responded to statements about a possible suspension of the university’s license, reported with reference to the CAA’s press service.

“An attempt to bring the training of aviation personnel in Kazakhstan in line with international requirements and international practice in the field of civil aviation contradicts the qualification requirements of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan. As a result, during inspections of the Ministry of Education and Science, the suspension of the license of the Civil Aviation Academy JSC became systematic,” the Civil Aviation Academy’s statement reads.

According to this educational institution, the main reasons for the Academy not to pass the test include the insufficient number of teachers with degrees in areas of aviation engineering training.

“In accordance with Article 3 of the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan “On the Use of the Airspace of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Activities of Aviation”, if an international treaty ratified by Kazakhstan establishes rules other than those provided for by this law, then the rules of the international treaty apply. This norm is not taken into account by the Ministry of Education.

At the same time, the main requirements of ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) is not the availability of academic degrees, but the presence of instructors certified by the authorized body in the field of civil aviation with the appropriate qualification confirmed by a certificate, which will contribute to ensuring flight safety, the source of which is the level of qualification of aviation personnel”, the Civil Aviation Academy said in its statement.

It is noted that now the Ministry of Industry and Infrastructure Development has initiated a draft law “On Amendments and Additions to the Law on Education”. It says that the Academy will be given the status of a higher specialized educational institution, which will allow it to meet the requirements of industry regulators, international standards and international practice in the system training competitive personnel in the field of civil aviation and ensuring flight safety in Kazakhstan.

Earlier, the Ministry of Education and Science informed that the case file was sent to the Specialized Inter-District Administrative Court of Almaty to deprive the Academy of a license to conduct educational activities.
