In the statement, Sekandi thanked Mike Mukula for initiating the foundation building of Uganda Aviation School.

Nakabaale noted that government had already undertaken to create an autonomous authority under ministry of works to regulate the aviation industry.

"We have embarked on a master plan to upgrade Entebbe International airport to accommodate more flights and think this should offer employment opportunities to these professionals who have graduated," said Nakabaale.

Elly Karuhanga, board of directors' representative at the graduation called upon the graduands to prioritize good reputation because most of them are the faces of the country while at work.

He observed that since most of them are the generation of innovation and technology, they should be prepared to embrace technological innovations.

Karuhanga is happy that the education programmes of Uganda aviation school are tailored towards providing human resource to the aviation industry.
