AMPAP gateway course
Delivery: On-site classroom
Duration: 5 days

The Global Air Mobility Systems (GAMS) is the required foundational course for AMPAP. GAMS engages participants in understanding the global role of commercial transport networks and the vital importance of the civil aviation industry in economic and social development at the national, regional, and international levels.

The course is forward-looking and will assist participants in recognizing the direction in which the industry must evolve. This strategic perspective has developed through long-standing ICAO consultation efforts with nation-state members that have, in recent years, prioritized sustainable industry development.

GAMS also covers the potential for Innovation Hubs to identify opportunities for rapid progress in multiple areas, including using technology, undertaking efforts to re-engineer processes, and considering the viability of alternative business models.
