Acumen Aviation and SWIMS Aviation South Korea Sign Partnership

Dublin based Acumen Aviation announced that SWIMS Aviation, South Korea, has been chosen to deliver Acumen’s training courses in Korean, starting in 2022. Acumen began its training services in February 2019, sharing its wealth of knowledge to help sustain long term industry growth as the leasing market continues to mature. Since then, Acumen’s training team has successfully delivered aviation specific training courses for in excess of 200 technical consultants servicing both lessor and airline customers. As part of Acumen’s continued ambition to make quality aviation training available to all, South Korean based SWIMS Aviation has been chosen to deliver Acumen training courses in the Korean language which are expected to commence in early 2022.

Acumen Vice President – Training, Vishwanath Hampanna, said: “We are thrilled to welcome SWIMS Aviation as our course delivery partner in South Korea. We aim to build an expertise in aircraft leasing ecosystem to meet the anticipated growth of aircraft leasing activities. We are confident that SWIMS will be able to deliver Acumen training programs in Korean.”

SWIMS Aviation Representative Director, Jang Gyung Taek, said: “We’re very excited to announce our partnering with Acumen Aviation training courses, which are very useful for lessors, airlines and independent consultants which enhances knowledge and skill sets to carry out asset management activities. We will deliver the Acumen training programs in Korean to reach the aviation personnel based in and out of South Korea. Also, we’re very grateful to receive the authority to educate in South Korea from Acumen. It was a stepping stone for the opportunity to pioneer a new market in South Korea. By educating many students, we will teach the way to the new aviation industry.”
