As the COVID crisis is still preventing us from traveling, MFI and INAMET redouble their efforts to find alternative solutions and ensure that the project can continue to move forward. Remote training sessions are one of the measures taken to allow the continuity of activities.
The first session took place from March the 15th till the 19th. The subject of the training was to learn how to use and administrate MFI’s pilot briefing system: AEROMETWEB. INAMET had rented a special office in Luanda in order to allow its 5 trainees to easily access to the session, given from MFI’s headquarters in Toulouse.
