Oman ACO/ATO Training
In May 2017 KNO ran a course in Lincoln for Air Ops staff and Air Traffic Controllers from the Omani Air Force to provide specialist Airspace training. The 2 week course was delivered by one of KNO’s ex Royal Air Force Air Control Centre trainers who had previously delivered similar training at the Royal Air Force for British Fighter Controllers working on the NATO AWAC Fleet. Oman like many other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Countries sees a growing multinational element to exercises and operations that it is involved in and is ensuring its Air Force is properly trained to enable Joint Operations in a safe and efficient manner. On completion of the course the Omani Air Force Officers were able to build complex airspace and disseminate details to numerous Air Forces in a standardised format.
