The MAA’s Mission is to enhance the delivery of operational capability through the continual improvement in military Air Safety, appropriate culture, regulation and practice.
The MAA Air Safety Training (AST) Team are responsible for the delivery and management of a coherent and comprehensive training portfolio for the Defence Aviation Environment Regulated Community and relevant MAA personnel and beyond to assist with continual improvement in military Air Safety and to embed appropriate culture.
The MAA AST Team comprises the Centre of Air Safety Training (CoAST), Trenchard Building, Defence Academy, Shrivenham, and colleagues based at Abbey Wood North, Juniper Building.
The AST Team deliver first class Air Safety Training to Military, Civil Servants, Contracted Civilians and Foreign Military delegates. We manage and oversee a comprehensive suite of Air Safety Training courses at the Defence Academy and selected locations, working with specialists from across Defence Aviation and external Subject Matter Experts (SME) such as Baines Simmons and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to ensure Air Safety Training is relevant, appropriate and consistent with JSP822 in the current operating environment.
