Aviation Entrepreneur Captain Mike Mukula has blasted the government and Uganda Civil Aviation Authority for being bureaucratic in issuing license and registration of private airline operators in the country.
Speaking at the 8th graduation ceremony of Uganda Aviation Academy in Kampala, Mike Mukula said the bureaucracy has slowed down business and up-scaled unfair competition in airline business.
“we urgently want government to support us by speeding up airline licensing and registration processes. This current slow and sluggish tendencies will kill our business down yet our mission is to create more jobs for our youth,” he said.
He called for quick establishment of East African airline aviation academy as Joibr venture to boost airline business in the region.
Mukula said because government support to the sector Kenya airline is employing more than 10,000 youths compared to 1000 Ugandans.
He said with partners Uganda Aviation academy will sign. Memorandum of understanding with Italian International University of Kenya and Makerere university business school to train more youth to work in hospitality industry.
Mukula says this will reduce number of Uganda youth getting employed in United Arab Emirates as house girls, cleaners and security guards which he says fetches less money.
In expanding its services, Uganda Aviation academy is in the process of embracing digital era in all its training courses as recommended by international Air transport association and convention on international civil aviation organisation.
Francis Babu underscored the need to train more youth into the sector saying aviation industry in Uganda and the world at large is growing steadily yet the skilled and professional staff in different sector are dew.
