Plans are afoot to generate more jobs in the aviation sector under the Mahinda Chinthana.
The Civil Aviation Authority has crafted plans to increase the job opportunities. Accordingly Aviation societies will be set up in all schools with GCE Advanced Level classes to impart knowledge to the students in this connection. The first workshop in this connection was held at the Thanamalwila national school. Minister Jagath Pushpakumara, Parliamentarian Vijitha Berugoda and Director General of the Civil Aviation Authority H.M.C. Nimalsiri also participated in the workshop. An air-show of light aircraft was also held.
