Participants were taken through topics such as high level presentations, economic regulations, with facilitators also drawn from the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority(GCAA).

Deputy Minister, Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah on his part urged participants to take the training serious and assured that more of such training would happen in the future.
