This programme includes several aspects such as the adaptation of airspace and air traffic control operating procedures, the training of air traffic controllers and technical staff, and in the definition and training of AIS (air information systems) in accordance with this renovation. For the development of the complete programme, it is foreseen that the Angolan team of professionals will carry out part of their training at SENASA's facilities in Madrid, and SENASA's advisors and instructors will travel on site to the premises of the Angolan aeronautical authority.

This agreement is an addition to SENASA's international presence in countries such as Cape Verde, Ghana, Mozambique and Georgia, which have already entrusted SENASA with their training and consultancy support programmes due to the growing interest in safety and training of their professionals.
