Support to Turkish Civil Aviation

One of the most deeply-rooted companies in the civil aviation industry that has lately been scene to major developments in Turkey and across the world, Çelebi places special importance on supporting civil aviation so that the industry becomes widely recognized across the country and gains access to qualified human resource.

Conducting various projects in this department, Çelebi took the first concrete step and established cooperation with the Ministry of Transport and Erzincan University in an effort to support civil aviation that requires advanced technology and qualified personnel. Within the scope of the collaboration, the project has been launched to set up a School of Civil Aviation under the university.

The protocol executed on 10 May 2008 by Çelebi Holding, Erzincan University and the Ministry of Transport covers the construction and development of the School of Civil Aviation, and cooperation between the parties in the execution of the training and education process.

Erzincan School of Civil Aviation will offer the curriculum mostly in English and the students will receive an education that matches the world's top aviation schools. Upon graduation, they will have the opportunity to take up jobs principally at Çelebi, as well as many aviation companies based in and out of Turkey.

Under the project, a 30-classroom school building set on a floor area of 4,000 sqm with a covered area of 15,000 sqm and a capacity of 1,500 students is being constructed with Çelebi Holding’s investment worth approximately USD 9 million.

Its construction finished in September 2010, Erzincan University Ali Cavit Çelebioğlu School of Civil Aviation started education on 2010-2011 academic year.
