Entry Point North opens a new ATS Academy in Ireland
On 2nd of January 2014 Entry Point North opened a new transnational academy in Ireland. The academy is a fully owned training subsidiary of Entry Point North. It will deliver all ATS training for the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) from its location in Ballycasey, Shannon, following a strategic agreement between the IAA and Entry Point North. As part of the agreement, the IAA has become a shareholder, thus securing a 25% ownership of Entry Point North on equal terms with Avinor, LFV and Naviair.
Entry Point North Ireland is staffed by experienced ATC personnel from IAA and supported by personnel from EPN. Both the IAA and Entry Point North and will deliver training programmes based on the proven Scandinavian training methodology and philosophy.
The establishment of Entry Point North Ireland lowers IAA capital investments and affords Entry Point North a greater economy of scale together with in-depth knowledge of the COOPANS training and simulator system to benefit current and future partners.
“The establishment of Entry Point North Ireland will besides valuable Irish know-how provide us with one more training delivery site in addition to Hungary and Sweden. It is a further step in our strategy of becoming a true international academy with global reach. This new academy will offer unparalleled quality, regulatory compliant and cost effective training services” – says Anne Kathrine Jensen, Managing Director of Entry Point North.
