Ethiopian Aviation Academy graduated 12 pilots, 125 aviation maintenance technicians
and 60 cabin crew at a ceremony held at the Ethiopian Headquarters on Thursday,
September 6, 2012.

diplomas to all the graduates, and flight wings to graduating pilots and cabin crew.
On the occasion, CEO Tewolde congratulated the new graduates and welcomed them to

is the foundation of the Airline. Self sufficiency in training of all airline expertise
right from the inception of our business has been one of the major success factors
of Ethiopian Airlines. Our Vision 2025 envisages a work force of around 17,000 employees
and most of them will graduate from our Academy. This is the main reason that we
are investing huge amount of money, time and energy for its expansion."
