“The Captain Miša Anastasijević” award is a proof that SMATSA Aviation Academy in Vršac had once again justified the confidence and had confirmed its quality and that is at the very top when pilot training is in concern. This award represents a great honor for us and we are glad to find ourselves in such a big formal gathering where awards are given to all those whose work in education has been recognized and appreciated.
For the Academy this prize represents an incentive for the future and harder work in order to achieve better results. The award itself requires evaluation of the results we gained until now and represents a new task for the future because we train pilots who are the best in their job, regardless of the airline company they work for.
The generations which have been successfully trained in our Academy for 60 years are also the proof of high level of training that has been carried out in SMATSA Aviation Academy for decades. Our Aviation Academy is one of the largest and most prominent in whole Europe. Everything mentioned above is done in order to create well-trained pilots who will not only represent SMATSA Aviation Academy, but Serbia as well. We will continue to promote both theoretical and practical training of instructors.
We are proud to have our own airport with three runways, our own Control Tower, a fleet of twenty modern aircraft, our own aircraft maintenance department and, above all, highly qualified staff who will create, among 104 students we educate at the moment, pilots which will safely and securely transport passengers all around the world. “
