Entry Point North, one of the largest Air Traffic Service (ATS) academies, and GroupEAD Europe S.L., Aeronautical Information Management (AIM) service provider, have signed a long-term partnership agreement for cooperation for national and international projects. The mutual cooperation will allow both parties to offer total training solutions to a variety of ANSPs and associated customers throughout the world.

The growing need for professional partners to deliver comprehensive training service packages within the air navigation service industry has brought Entry Point North and GroupEAD together as partners to address various customer projects. Entry Point North provides complete initial training for ATCOs, ATSEPs, ATS and AFIS personnel, including a wide range of development training courses, recruitment and selection and other services.

GroupEAD offers AIS and AIM related training and services, such as EAD Data Operations, Static Data, NOTAM, AIXM, AIP Production and more. The partnership means that Entry Point North and GroupEAD will be able to offer more services to its customers, either by partnering together or by offering each other’s training services.

“I am delighted to announce this partnership with GroupEAD, which brings together two companies whose continued success hinges on the ability to innovate and rapidly respond to change and market demands. GroupEAD has an unparalleled reputation for providing AIS/AIM services and support.”

This partnership is an example of Entry Point North looking for inspiration and fresh perspectives on how we can achieve our strategic goals and fulfil the ambitions set out by the SES initiative,” says Anne Kathrine Jensen, managing director of Entry Point North.

“Our new partnership with Entry Point North offers a well-rounded catalogue of training and experience in complementary fields of ATC and AIS, providing additional benefits in the transition from AIS to AIM to clients,” says Michael Kraft, CEO GroupEAD Europe S.L.

“Entry Point North has shown an outstanding level of professionalism in our previous cooperation activities. This partnership deepens and strengthens the already existing cooperation and enlarges our joint portfolio of services for the benefit of our customers,” Michael Kraft continued.
