We joined Arctic Aviation Cluster

This week Airport College participated in the Arctic Aviation Cluster meeting at Enontekiö Airport in Finnish Lapland. Despite the extremely arctic weather of -29°C, we found the meeting interesting and future-oriented.

The Arctic Aviation Cluster Supports Electric Aviation

A route network for electric aircraft and unmanned aviation are being developed in Lapland. In order to make the work easier and more efficient, the Arctic Aviation Cluster has been established this week at Arctic Airport Enontekiö.

Route Network Development for Electric Aircraft

The intention is to create a route network for electric aircraft, improve accessibility of the area and allow for greater cooperation with northern regions of Finland, Sweden and Norway. At the same time, unmanned aviation (UAV) will be developed. The Artic region offers unique opportunities for technology testing regarding distances and conditions.

Arctic Airport Enontekiö Provides Training Platform

Airport College International has established the Airport Operations Diploma Program together with Marko Halla, Chief of the Arctic Airport Enontekiö. The focus of this study program is two-fold:

  1. Students will gain a first-hand exposure and insights to the airline and ground handling industry and various aspects of ground handling by studying 10 online self-study courses.

  2. After completion of all online courses, the students undergo an On-The-Job-Training (OJT) period with an assigned mentor at Enontekiö Airport.

300 km North of Arctic Circle

The Arctic Airport Enontekiö is located in Finnish Lapland, 300 km north of the Arctic Circle. It can be said that it is indeed located in the north!
