Between 2012 and 2018 Pablo Fernández promoted the internationalization of SENASA
During the period 2012-2018 SENASA experienced the international expansion of its training services in air control and aeronautical safety. Then, under the leadership of Pablo Fernández, SENASA offered its experience and knowledge in aeronautical training to projects in countries such as Macedonia, Azerbaijan, Albania, Guinea, Cape Verde, Mozambique or Mexico. SENASA worked with the airport authorities of these countries to train in full and refresher courses on air control, OJTI, events notification or runway incursion. No doubt, SENASA's contribution to aeronautical training and safety beyond our borders in recent years has led institutions in more than 80 countries to rely on SENASA's experience to train their professionals.
What is your best memory of SENASA?
My best memory from my time in SENASA is of the magnificent management team that I was fortunate to coordinate. In addition to their high professional level, the human qualities they showed me have allowed me to continue enjoying wonderful memories of commitment, camaraderie, effort and, of course, joys.
What activities would you highlight from that time?
The organic and functional reorganization of the company allowed it to adapt to a complicated economic environment and to a model of open competition in practically all areas of activity that made up SENASA's corporate purpose.
SENASA’s international position as a benchmark in ATC training, together with the recovery of training capacity and quality, made it possible to re-fill the Training Centre and, therefore, to provide the air navigation system with the professionals that was needed.
What strengths define SENASA as an organization serving the public sector?
SENASA’s main strength is the high level of specialization of the professionals that compose it. In the same way, the idea that SENASA provides a public service, in a highly competitive sector, helps to position the company as a basic instrument for the Public Sector.
How do you see the future of SENASA?
Regardless of the political decisions that may be taken in the future, technically, the supportive role that SENASA holds can hardly be replaced by other types of actors. However, the company needs to keep an agile and efficient organizational model, which allows continuous adaptation to the needs that are being demanded.
