AVIATION SECTOR

The world's Civil Aviation Regulatory Authorities require the licensing of aerodromes that transport fare paying passengers. One of the aerodrome license obligations is to maintain a competent Rescue and Firefighting service.

Aerodrome or Aviation firefighters are highly specialized firefighters who, in addition to being competent in the usual firefighting skills, also have the specialist skills required to deal with a multitude of aircraft incident types. Incidents range from weather standbys, on airfield aircraft crashes to incidents involving multi-million dollar military aircraft.

 

Many Oil and Gas operators in the Middle East fly their employees into remote airports and these airports also fall under the same regulations as the national and international airports. Fire crews operating at these airports are required to be competent and are certified in the same skills as their counterparts at the regional and international airports.

IAFS are approved to provide aviation firefighter training by the Civil Aviation Authority Oman (CAA Oman)  who are the national regulatory body in compliance with the Sultanate's International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) treaty signatory mandate. Our training meets all the international standards and is also recognised by international bodies such as The International Fire Service Congress (IFSAC) and complies with the UK Civil Aviation International Safety Regulation Group. 

IAFS provides training at all 3 levels of operational aviation Rescue and Firefighting Services, from Firefighter to Watch Supervisor and mandatory revalidation programs are available for re-certification of competence. We also provide a number of specialist courses including Helicopter and Military aircraft and Incident Management.
