Aviation officials from Indonesia, Jordan and 16 other countries will receive training on the use of global positioning systems at a local training center over the coming weeks, the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs said Sunday.
Eighteen officials from as many countries will receive instruction at the Civil Aviation Training Center in Cheongwon, North Chungcheong Province, from Monday to Aug. 5, the ministry said in a statement.
They will study the American and European Galileo GPS systems so they can use them in accordance with the standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization, the ministry said.
The foreign officials will also have a chance to get a glimpse of other GPS-related technologies such as the ground based augmentation system (GBAS) and VHF Omni-directional Range (VOR), both of which South Korea developed to help facilitate aviation and landing. (Yonhap)
