Thirty-four delegates are now taking part in the Air Charter Association’s (ACA) in-person Air Charter Broker Qualification Training, which restarted with the opening Level 1 Foundation Knowledge Session on November 10 in London, the organization announced today. “After a two-year break [due to the pandemic], resuming our broker training and seeing so many enthusiastic aviation professionals attending the course has been truly rewarding,” said ACA chief executive Glenn Hogben.
Hogben said the program saw a pass rate of 94 percent and noted that 29 percent of those who passed did so with distinction. Added co-presenter and ACA deputy chair Julie Black: “Seeing delegates attend from across the business aviation industry—including brokers, FBOs, ground handlers, and insurers—reflects the benefit this training provides to all those involved in the charter process.”
The course is open to aviation professionals and provides expert knowledge across three levels. In addition to the Level 1 training, it includes Level 2, which focuses on understanding operational aspects and flight management, and Level 3, which covers advanced broker skills. The Level 2 and 3 in-person courses are planned for February and July 2022. Successful completion of all three levels is required to become a Qualified Air Charter Broker.
ACA also will be launching an online version of the training over the next few months.
