From December 1-2, the ICAO Next Generation of Aviation Professionals(NGAP) Task Force will gather for the annual symposium at the ICAO headquarters in Montreal, Canada. At this symposium, the NGAP will discuss the shortage of pilots and aviation professionals in the industry. Shaesta Waiz, member of NGAP, will be attending to partake in the discussions and share the Dreams Soar initiative with the Task Force. Shaesta’s goal is to discuss the STEM outreach events along the Dreams Soar route and encourage involvement from NGAP membership on a global scale.

The NGAP initiatives were launched to ensure that enough qualified aviation professionals are available to operate, manage and maintain the future international air transport system.
