A dedicated and motivated Aviation Professional with over 20 years of solid experience working in various capacities in aviation operations and training within Air Traffic Management (ATM), Air Navigation Services (ANS), Safety Management Systems (Civil Aviation) and Human Factors in Aviation.
My love for aviation has seen me render my expertise in three countries, that is, active Air Traffic Control, Air Traffic Control On-Job-Instruction and ATC Unit Incident Investigation in South Africa (Air Traffic and Navigation Services SOC) and Kenya (Kenya Civil Aviation Authority). In the United Arab Emirates, I have served in various capacities, that is, Air Traffic Control Classroom Instructor (Fujairah Aviation Academy), Air Traffic Services Instructor, Course Developer and volunteer Internal Auditor (Fujairah International Airport). Currently, I am serving as the Head of Training (A GCAA Post Holder) in Fujairah Air Navigation Services Air Traffic Control Approved Training Organization.
FANS Training Center offers Air Traffic Control Training (Initial, Rating, Conversion, Refresher and related developmental training relevant to ATCs). Also, the centre conducts specialized Aviation Industry Training relevant for all Aviation Professionals.
I have a passion for training, coaching and mentoring young aspiring aviation professionals and watching them bloom into their full potential. Apart from Air Traffic Control and Training, I also have a great interest in Aviation Safety which led me to pursue an IATA Diploma in Safety Management Systems (Civil Aviation) and recently just completed a Master of Science in Psychology. My long-term objective is to transition to Aviation Safety as a Human Factors Specialist as I love working with people and also to continue working in active Air Traffic Control and Aviation Training.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family in whatever activity that allows us to have fun and spend quality time with each other in this fast-paced world.
