At the Department of Aeronautics a Safety Management System (SMS) training course was conducted from the 18th – 21st September 2017 for the employees of the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Croatia and Croatian Air Force.
Fifteen participants attended a four-day course and gained basic knowledge in air traffic safety and SMS regulation requirements, management systems and establishing SMS in aviation organisations with emphasis on occurrence reporting, risk assessment and safety culture.
The air traffic controller Practical Instructor training was held in Croatia for the first time during last weeks. The training was organized and provided by HUSK (Croatian Air Traffic Control Training Centre) according to the Synthetic Training Device Instructor (STDI) Training Course approved by Croatian Civil Aviation Agency in accordance to the EU REG 2015/340.
ATCOs that successfully finished the first STDI training course are: Hrvoje Pavić, Željko Oreški, Igor Roščak and Marin Andrijašević. After successfully finishing STDI training course they have acquired prerequisite to become STDI instructors and gain STDI endorsement in ATCO licence. STDI endorsement enables them to provide practical training during all phases of ATCO training before the beginning of the on-the-job-training (OJT). HUSK’s qualified theoretical and OJT instructors and assessors participated in the provision of STDI training.

From 21st November 2016 HUSK (Croatian Air Traffic Control Training Centre) is in compliance with the requirements of the EU REG 2015/340 as ATCO Training Organization. HUSK has been awarded ATCO Training Organization certificate (HR.ATCOTO.01) by Croatian Civil Aviation Agency and received the approval to provide following types of training and courses:
- ATCO INITIAL TRAINING – BASIC TRAINING COURSE
- PRACTICAL INSTRUCTOR TRAINING – SYNTHETIC TRAINING DEVICE INSTRUCTOR (STDI) TRAINING COURSE
For the first time in Croatian aviation history one organization gained approval for the provision of ATCO practical instructor training. This achievement enables Croatian ATCO training organizations to train their new STDI instructors in Croatia. Successfully finished STDI training course allows candidates to gain STDI endorsement which is a prerequisite to provide practical training. At the same time, STDI training course is open for candidates from other training organizations and air navigation services.
Mr. Patrick Ky, Executive Director of EASA (European Agency for Aviation Safety Agency) spent two days in Croatia in a working visit. On the October 28 Croatian Civil Aviation Agency (CCAA) organized a meeting where Mr. Ky met the leaders and representatives of the Croatian aviation industry (CCAA, Ministry of Sea, Transport and Infrastructure, major Croatian airports, Croatia Airlines, Croatia Control ltd. as well as HUSK and HZNS as training organizations of the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences).
Executive Director of EASA introduced participants to new trends in international civil aviation, current and future regulation requirements in safety and security, the priorities of EASA in the future and the role and importance of Croatian aviation authorities and stakeholders in Europe.
Representatives of HUSK (Assistant Professor Biljana Juričić, Head of Training) and HZNS (Mr. Izidor Alfirević, Accountable Manager) actively participated during the meeting. They introduced Mr. Ky to the activities of HUSK and HZNS and gave constructive comments on safety regulation requirements.

Two French Air Force Academy cadets 2nd Lieutenants Mathilde Marc and Mathilde Widehem have spent 15-week internship at the Department of Aeronautics of the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences.
During their stay at the Department of Aeronautics they worked as a team members of the wider project dealing with the improvement of the air traffic control simulators and have finished their diploma thesis. 2nd Lieutenant Mathilde Marc worked on the “Development of the 3D TWR simulator” under the supervision of assistant professor Biljana Juričić, while 2nd Lieutenant Mathilde Widehem worked on the “Development of a Radar Model for ATC Simulation” under the supervision of Jurica Ivošević, PhD.
On the June 21 2016. they successfully defended their diploma thesis at the French Air Force Base in Salon de Provence in France.

On 28 April 2016 graduate students of the Department of Aeronautics, led by the teachers, Tomislav Radišić and Jurica Ivošević, visited the Laboratory for Remote Sensing and GIS of the Faculty of Forestry, University of Zagreb. The visit came at the invitation of the Head of the Laboratory and vice dean of the Faculty, Professor Renata Pernar, who was, together with her team, a very cordial host.
The visit, held in a constructive and friendly atmosphere, was divided into two parts. First part was the presentation of interesting projects which use remote sensing technology in the field of forestry. In the second part of the visit students were introduced to practical examples of analogue and digital image processing. Both parts are very important for understanding the practical uses of theoretical knowledge acquired at Airborne Reconnaissance and Surveillance course and later at Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Operations course.
We hope to continue cooperation in the coming years.
Dana 18. ožujka 2015. na Zavodu za aeronautiku održan je radni sastanak na temu unaprjeđenja školovanja vojnih pilota. Sastanku je, uz upravu Fakulteta, prisustvovao zapovjednik Hrvatskog vojnog učilišta general Slavko Barić, te predstavnici Hrvatskog ratnog zrakoplovstva. Dogovorene su konkretne mjere u definiranju procesa školovanja na diplomskoj razini studija, te razrađena metodologija daljnjeg rada. Početak primjene modela na diplomskoj razini očekuje se u akademskoj godini 2015./2016. Vojni piloti Hrvatskog ratnog zrakoplovstva školuju se na Zavodu za aeronautiku Fakulteta prometnih znanosti od 1992. godine prema modelu civilno-vojnog školovanja.
U utorak 2.12.2014. održane su obrane završnih i diolomskih radova na Fakultetu prometnih znanosti. Pri Zavodu za aeronautiku diplomski rad pod nazivom Novi postupci letenja OAT prometa u okolnom prostoru Zračne luke Zadar branio je student Dominik Jerinić, pod mentoriranjem doc.dr.sc. Biljane Juričić. Ostali članovi Povjerenstva za obranu diplomskog rada su bili doc.dr.sc. Anita Domitrović (predsjednica Povjerenstva za obranu) te prof.dr.sc. Stanislav Pavlin (član Povjerenstva za obranu).
Dominik Jerinić je student prve generacije studenata izvanrednog diplomskog studija aeronautike koji su upisali studij kao djelatne osobe Hrvatskog ratnog zrakoplovstva. Uspješnim završetkom studija, Dominik je stekao akademski naziv mag.ing.aeronaut. te je postao prvi student modula vojni pilot koji je diplomirao na Fakultetu prometnih znanosti nakon uvođenja „Bolonjskog procesa“.

(HKZP), održao je pozvano predavanje na temu Smjernice razvoja ATM-a u Europi i uloga Hrvatske kontrole zračne plovidbe. Osim općih informacija o povijesti HKZP-a, organizacijskoj strukturi, sustavu financiranja te oblasnim kontrolama i području pokrivanja, izložena je i analiza trenda promjene prometa u zadnjoj dekadi kao i analiza mjesečnog prometa u posljednje 3 godine. Također, predstavljena je i analiza kašnjenja u posljednjih 7 godina, a trostruko smanjenje kašnjenja u 2013.g. u odnosu na 2012.g postignuto
je planiranjem, sektoriranjem, automatizacijom, poboljšanjem operativne tehnologije i tehnološkom napretku sustava kao i timskom radu. Osim navedenoga bilo je govora i o COOPANS-u, modernim izazovima FAB CE-a, BEST simulatoru te projektu TOPLINK kao dijelu SESAR-a, koji završava 2016.g.
Po završetku izlaganja, auditorij je imao priliku za postavljanje pitanja i raspravu o aktualnim temama u području kontrole leta.
