On 09 April 2015, The International Civil Aviation Organisation-ICAO, has bestowed upon GMR Aviation Academy (GMRAA), the coveted stature of ICAO’s ”Regional Training Centre of Excellence (RTCE)”.

ICAO has recently established a collaborative network of RTCEs to enhance the professional qualifications of personnel and the provision of high quality aviation training. As a TRAINAIR PLUS-leading Full (Gold) Member , GMRAA is one of the first few training centres to become an ICAO RTCE and is the 6th to be so, globally. As an RTCE, GMRAA will lead in the development and delivery of competency-based ICAO training courses in the authorised areas of Aerodromes and Environment Management.

This recognition by ICAO is a significant achievement, for only eleven coveted Aviation Training Institutes have so far been bestowed by ICAO with the RTCE status globally

This makes GMR AA the only Aviation Academy in the Indian sub-continent and the 3rd in the Asia-Pacific Region to be bestowed with the great honour. This is not only a matter of pride for the GMR Group, but also a matter of National pride for India.
