Training and licensingTraining

Training provided by the Flight Safety Authority


The Finnish Civil Aviation Authority offers many different types of training. Training
is provided e.g. to flight examiners for obtaining an authorisation, to the commercial
section of CAA Finland, and to employees of the Finnish Aeronautical Association who
assist the Finnish Civil Aviation Authority in sport aviation oversight.

The Finnish Civil Aviation Authority trains authorised flight examiners as well as sport aviation supervisors designated by the Finnish Aeronautical Association. Basic training is mandatory for flight examiners. The Finnish Civil Aviation Authority also provides continuation training, which is not mandatory but is in practice carried out by all flight examiners.

Some of the Finnish Civil Aviation Authority’s training is directed to aviation companies and organisations. This training often deals with aviation regulations, and is particularly intended for responsible persons in training organisations.

Training is organised at the Finnish Civil Aviation Authority’s discretion when needed. The Finnish Civil Aviation Authority invites to training such persons for whom it considers the training to be necessary.

Theoretical instruction and specialist training

The Finnish Civil Aviation Authority offers various courses to Finavia, Avia College (Finavia’s training institute) and to the Finnish airports. The courses include theoretical instruction and specialist training, such as air traffic controller training and training for the transport of dangerous goods.
