RAC stands for Richard's Aviation Course and was founded in 1996.

RAC Aviation Course is a series of presentations, which looks at various aspects of aviation. RAC gives a clear and independent view of aviation today. This part is especially created for airline related companies.



RACis built on the premise that people who are working in aviation or are going to work in aviation should be informed and trained about the aviation industry. People who work in aviation have a very specific function. As a result of training their knowledge of aviation can be improved and therefore they become a useful addition to a company. The course makes useful links between various aspects of aviation. The background information could be of importance for people working in the airline business, who require more information. This could encourage them to move to higher positions or improve themselves in the highly dynamic world of aviation.

Who will benefit by these courses?

Companies and organizations who directly or indirectly are involved with aviation. Handling companies in airports, the airlines, the Schiphol Group, airline organizations and other related airline industries.

People in organizations

People who work in a company or organization together form a team. These people are an important factor in the quality of service of an organization. RAC will provide information that will be useful for airline related companies. An improvement in staff knowledge and skills could lead to an improvement in the performance of an organization. Motivated and well-informed workers will make a success of an organization.

The training

RAC has had positive reactions to previous training courses. The training is well-prepared with up-to-date presentations that last for two hours each.

Various visual aids are used to support the presentations. At this moment there is a choice of  twelve aviation subjects.

The minimum number of subjects is three and the maximum is eight subjects as a training cycle. After attending these presentations/training RAC awards a certificate as a proof of completion of the course. The specific wishes of companies and organizations will, if possible, be presented.
