This achievement is evidence of VJAA's unwavering commitment to excellence, safety, and professionalism in the aviation industry. The journey to this point has been one of hard work, dedication, and a genuine passion for reaching new heights. Officially becoming a Foreign Approved Training Organization (FATO) is a significant milestone, and VJAA now plays a vital role in the global aviation community, contributing to the advancement of aviation activities not only in Laos but beyond.
