ECATA ABI Course 2019 :
Since the start of the first ECATA ABI Course in 1992 all participants upon graduating become members of the ECATA Alumni Association known as ECALAS. The association can count more than 400 members globally and is growing annually.
To foster the idea of a living, information exchanging network, ECALAS’ keynote event is the ECALAS International Aerospace Seminar. Starting 1996 the event is held annually and is an opportunity for the ECALAS members to meet, discuss and learn from each other as well as from high level speakers being from across the Aerospace Industry and University.
The dynamic ECALAS association constitutes an effective European network that is useful for current and future European Aerospace challenges in the world.

"The ECATA programme is the only European programme that creates lasting relationships across leading Aerospace companies with the specific objective of these relationships creating a better European Aerospace capability."
“Apart from business topics, the personality development and team building exercises in ABI are really world class. We got introduced to multiple tools to check the team dynamics and needs of diverse, multicultural teams working in complex projects with tough deadline. ABI is truly a remarkable experience in my career.”
“ECATA was life changing for me; not because of a classical career progression, but because I decided to provoke my company to revolutionise itself after I completed the course. I could see that the world was changing faster than the industry and I felt compelled to act. I began a journey that has rocked Airbus with disruptive thinking and ways of working: more collaboration, less structure, more humanity and more innovation.”
“ECATA course has widen my understanding of our industry from a strategic standpoint along the global aerospace value chain. This programme is a real opportunity to open your mind on new topics. Later on, it gave me the willing to evolve within my company towards a job dealing with another part of the engine life cycle and much more business oriented.”
“ECATA experience gives the opportunity to have a break in a career. Bringing together this variety of nationalities, companies and characters is very enriching and gives unique points of views. ”
“My time on the ECATA programme gave me a unique insight in to Aerospace industry outside of my organisation to what can be achieved when a group of individuals with the same energy all work together for a common goal irrespective of culture or organisation. This experience influences the way I make decisions in my professional life.”
